Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I'd like to start out tonight by recognizing that my blog is nine months old! I can't believe how much has happened since I launched Taylor Talks in July!
Aside from this momentous blog post, it was also a great night because of school. I had to go up to campus right after elementary school was over for the day. I had graduation rehearsal, which basically meant I went to sit in a lecture hall for an hour and listen to a ton of information about the big day. I also got my cap and gown tonight! Everything suddenly seems so close!
After the meeting was over, we were able to pick up our graduation tickets. Can you believe they only give you four tickets?! So unfortunately, it looks like my brother has no plans of talking to us anytime soon, which I guess means that he won't be coming to my graduation ceremony. But I'm still left two tickets short. I have my parents and four siblings that will be attending the ceremony, and if I don't get two more tickets from somewhere, then my parents are going to have to split up with the kids. There's extra seating around the sides of the ceremony area, but you have to bring your own chairs and everything. It's just incredible that for some people, you can't even get enough tickets for your immediate family, while other people are able to invite extended family or friends because they don't have that many siblings. So keep your fingers crossed for me that I'll be able to find two extra tickets somewhere... Only 18 days until graduation!
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.
