Parenthood comes with a lot of shocks and surprises, but one mom was in for a truly special surprise when she adopted her two kids. Newly-divorced Colorado mom Katie Page went from single to a mom of two biological siblings in the span of one month.
Page wanted to be a mom, so she decided to become a foster parent. She was given a boy named Grayson to care for first. Just a few short weeks, later she received another call to care for a baby girl, who she named Hannah. What happened next goes way beyond “small world” territory and into “what are the chances.”
Page immediately noticed similarities between the two. The first clue was that Hannah was born in the same hospital as Grayson and had the same mother’s name and mother’s date of birth on her hospital bracelet. She also noticed things about their features that were the same, like a chin dimple. Finally she checked in with the case worker and after a DNA test, she conformed what she already suspected was true: the kids were biological siblings.
“They were meant to find each other, that’s pretty clear. I think God intended that from the beginning. If they weren’t related, Hannah would not have stayed with our family. She would have been placed with other relatives. It was a great thing,” she told Good Morning America.
Page has since learned that their biological mother has had another baby, a five-month-old boy named Jackson and she hopes to adopt him as well.
