Foster mom takes in baby that was abandoned clueless she’s her adopted son’s sister
Katie Page, a single former foster mom has quite a story to tell.
She’s been doing that on a blog and Instagram page, the latter of which has racked up nearly 100,000 followers on her journey.
A new life
Page’s new life in Colorado started after the end of her marriage.
During those years she had struggled with fertility – and was still interested in starting a family after her divorce. So she looked into adoption after moving across the country.
It was an e-mail from her pastor that would change her life forever. In it, he asked if she might consider becoming a certified foster parent. And she was – it was certainly one potential route towards adoption.
Page cared for four foster children before meeting Grayson — a baby boy who was abandoned at the hospital. On May 25, 2017, Page officially adopted Grayson, who is now 2 years old.
A month after Page adopted Grayson, she received a call about a newborn girl, named Hannah, who needed a home.
Page said as soon as she met Hannah, now a year old, that she knew she wanted to give her a forever home as well.
The mystery of two surrendered babies
Page made an interesting discovery at the hospital when she arrived to pick up Hannah. While she wasn’t permitted to know anything about the birth mother, the woman’s first name was on the baby’s ID bracelet.
It was the same name that had been on Grayson’s. Coincidence?
Page said it was unclear whether or not Grayson and Hannah were brother and sister because their mother had lied about her last name and date of birth when she left Grayson at the hospital on the day he was born. Both children had been exposed to methamphetamines in the womb, according to Page.
Page’s roommate, Ashley Chapa, was present as she began unfolding the mystery.
Page decided to see if she could track down the birth mother. And after she was successful, the woman confirmed that she had given birth to two babies at the same hospital at those times.
DNA tests confirmed they were half-siblings.
Without even knowing it, she had reunited part of a family under her care! And, presumably, the birth mother made the court process run smoother when Page wanted to formally adopt Hannah.
“It is a MIRACLE that my two babies found each other,” Page wrote in an Instagram post.
Wishes granted – and then some
But that’s still not the end of this family’s story. A third child came along who was also related to Grayson and Hannah. And there was no judgment – after all, she was a woman of God – only acceptance.
In the same Instagram post announcing her children were siblings, she shared the latest big news:
“Grayson and Hannah’s bio-mommy just had another baby boy whom we welcomed into our home today! They called me around 1pm and I was at the hospital at 4pm to take him home.”
Jackson joined the family in August of 2018.
A family of 3+
With 3 kids under age 3, things haven’t always been easy, but Katie Page wouldn’t have it any other way.
The family is just like any other, with victories and challenges all along the journey. And it’s pretty incredible that these siblings all ended up under one roof thanks to a woman with a big heart.
And in case you were wondering – Page isn’t done fostering yet. In fact, she’s been taking in older children as well.
What a family! Be sure to follow them all on Instagram.
