Here’s a incredible story of parenthood for you folks. A woman named Katie Page received the surprise of a lifetime when she learned that the girl she was about to adopt is the biological sister of her already-adopted son.
Katie became a foster parent in 2016 after going through a divorce. Fertility issues meant that she was unable to have children during her marriage, but she still dreamed of being a mother.
Putting her maternal instincts to good use, Katie cared for four foster children over a year or so, before meeting Grayson, a baby who was abandoned at the hospital.
On May 25, 2017, Katie officially adopted Grayson, who is now two years old. Just months after adopting Grayson, Katie received a call about a newborn girl, named Hannah, who needed a home.
As soon as Katie met Hannah, she knew that it was meant to be. She also noticed something remarkable about Hannah – her name.
“[The caseworkers] told me her story, which was really similar to Grayson’s,” Katie recalled. “I saw her medical bracelet and the first name of her mother was the same name as Grayson’s mom. She didn’t have a typical name.”
Still, this was inconclusive, since the biological mother had lied about her name.
Katie officially adopted Hannah on December 28, 2018 and a simple DNA test confirmed that the two are biological siblings. It would seem that fate had brought them back together, under the care of a loving new mother.
As crazy as it all is, the story doesn’t end here.
Katie has learned that there is now a 5-month-old child who needs a home, and the child is from the same mother. And yep, you guessed it – she’s planning to adopt this one as well. Katie must have so much love to give!
“I was a single woman in a four-bedroom house and now every room in my house is full,” Katie said in an interview. “It’s never dull. People ask me all the time, ‘How do you do it?’ I never thought I’d have three babies, but God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.”
Amen to that, Katie. God bless you for your kindnesses, and all the best to your family in the future.
