Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
With all of the craziness of the past few weeks (the hospital visits, crazy fevers, and throwing up), I’ve been thinking a lot about my two littlest sisters. I realized that I have posted the writings that I’ve done about each of my family members except for the twins. I thought that I would take tonight and tomorrow to round out the family and give all of you the chance to understand the youngest family members a little bit better.
She’s a petite little package. It would be easy to get lost in the crowd, but the big booming voice she has could never let that happen. She is part of a set that is so alike, yet so different. She’s the rambunctious one, but she can still be loving and cuddly when she wants to be. She may be tiny, but she leaves a huge impression – that’s my sister.
Twin A is the older one, but she’s way tinier than her sister. She’s the comedian, and her sister is her best audience. I love sitting back and watching them interact with each other. Just tonight, my mom and I were talking about the fact that even at five years old, the girls still sit smushed up together as tightly as when they were in the womb. These girls are just the light in our lives, and I know that they always make my day better, no matter how bad of a mood I’m in. I couldn’t possibly brag about them anymore than I do, and I’m sure all of my friends are sick of hearing about the cute stuff that they did, but hey, it’s a big sister’s right to show off her younger siblings!
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.
