Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today was a wonderful day filled with good sportsmanship, competition, and proud family and friends. Today was the 2015 Special Olympics for our area!
This was my sister's fifth year competing, and it was my little brother's first time competing. They both did extremely well and made us all so proud. My sister participated in the 100m run, the running long jump, and she anchored the relay. My brother also competed in a 100m run and running long jump (he didn't compete against my sister though), and he also did the javelin throw. My sister ended up with a gold and silver medal, plus a ribbon for the relay. My brother got a gold and two silver medals. They were incredible, and they had a great time.
I absolutely love going to the Special Olympics because it is such a joyous day for everyone. The participants range from sixth grade up through adults of all ages. Everyone enjoys trying their hardest and making all of the spectators, and themselves, proud. Like always, it was a beautiful day out, and the events were enjoyed by all.

My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
