Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I had a lot going on tonight (making cupcakes for a little surprise party) so I don't have time for a long post. I thought that I would share a memory of early on in our foster care journey though.
When I was really little still, a new foster sister entered my life for a short while. She wasn't with us for a long time, because she had family, a grandmother if I remember correctly, who lived in another state and just had to get cleared to take her. I don't remember exactly how long she was with us, but I do remember the fun confusion that resulted from having her as my sister for that time.
I normally don't share names in my posts, for privacy sake, but I'm going to share this particular foster sister's first name. Why? Her name was also Taylor. That's right, I had a sister living in my house who had the same name as me. It was so strange, but kind of fun too. This was the only time that we had such name confusion in our house, and it didn't last long, but wow, what are the odds of that happening, right? To this day, whenever I talk about former foster siblings, Taylor is the only one to whom I refer by first and last name.
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
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.
