Katie Page decided to become a foster parent after being unable to conceive while she was married to her now ex-husband.
Page, who was only in her 30s when her marriage ended, had always dreamed of becoming a mom, so she turned to fostering to make her dreams of being a parent a reality.
According to Inside Edition, Page officially became a foster parent on Mother’s Day 2016. The first few children to enter her home were only short-term placements before she got a call about adoption.
As Page told Inside Edition, she was approached by her caseworker about “fostering to adopt” a newborn child who was born with drug exposure.
The biological mom left just hours after giving birth, leaving behind fake personal information so that she couldn’t be found.
Just hours after receiving the call, Page was on her way to pick the baby boy up from the hospital:
“I fell in love the moment I saw him and held him in my arms. Welcoming a brand new baby boy into my home with less than a day’s notice was scary but the best I have ever chosen.”
“He is beautiful inside and out. He attracts people to him everywhere we go with his sweet smile and calm nature.”
Page, who runs a blog called Wood and Grace, ended up naming her son Grayson, and his adoption became official on May 25, 2017.
After welcoming Grayson into her home, Page took several months off from fostering so that she and her son could settle in before she received another phone call from her caseworker two weeks after the adoption was made final.
Again, the caseworker told Page about another newborn who was in a similar situation to her son, Grayson.
As Inside Edition reports, Page “felt a strange calling to agree to take on another baby”:
“I started having strong suspicions that Grayson had siblings the day I accepted the baby girl into my home. I knew something was special about this little girl and that she might be a link to his family that we thought we would never know when I adopted him less than two weeks before.”
Not only was the baby girl born in the same hospital as Grayson, but she also had drug exposure and endured the same medical complications.

And on top of that, the fake name left by the girl’s biological mom was the same name and birthdate left by Grayson’s. However, this time the mom was interested in keeping in contact with her child.
Page told Inside Edition that her initial meeting with the woman helped fill in the holes, making it more clear that Page’s suspicions were right.
Ultimately, a DNA confirmed that Grayson and the girl, named Hannah, were biologically related:
“I was devastated for Grayson that he had just been left at the hospital with no information about his family and who he was. To have this little girl help us unravel huge pieces of the puzzle about his life and change his story forever was a huge blessing.”
Page said the bond between the brother and sister is already “amazing”:
“I felt God clearly brought them together for a reason despite all the odds that could have kept them apart forever.”

Since adopting both Grayson and Hannah, Page is already in the process of adopting a third child, who is also the younger sibling of both Grayson and Hannah.
Page told “Good Morning America“:
“I was a single woman in a four-bedroom house and now every room in my house is full. 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.”
