Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Tonight, I wanted to share a funny memory of when my littlest sisters were younger. As I may have mentioned before, having twins in the family is completely different than any other sibling or sibling group I've ever had. Watching twins grow up can really bring some humor into normal everyday life.
When the girls were younger, however old you are when you realize what a mirror is, we used to hold them up to the bathroom mirror as you would with any small child. We would try to tell them that they were looking at their own reflection. Being a twin, however, meant that they saw things a little differently.
When we would hold Twin A up to the mirror, she would say that she saw Twin B looking back at her. The same went for Twin B, who would say that she saw Twin A in her reflection. It was so funny, because the girls aren't even identical.
Looking at yourself in the mirror seems like such a meaningless part of life until you think about what a twin sees in their reflection. My twin sisters really help us see the joy in all of the little parts of life... unless they're whining through a task like brushing teeth, of course, as I experienced tonight!! Sheesh!
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.
