A Colorado mother is grateful to God for working a “miracle” in her family’s life. Katie Page always wanted to be a mom. But after experiencing fertility issues in marriage and then getting divorced in her 30s, she grieved what she thought was a missed opportunity.
Page explains more on her blog, Wood + Grace:
“… four years ago I was a recently divorced woman in her early thirties struggling to find my way. I knew that God was calling me to be a woman quite different than who I was at the time. I remember literally looking in the mirror one day and sobbing at the woman I saw… I knew I was not the woman my heart desired to be. I committed to changing my life and making a life that was fulfilling and one I was proud of. Over the next year, I changed jobs and bought a ‘fixer upper.’ The house I bought would require extensive work to transform into my vision and most of which I would have to do myself in order to afford it. The house was a large 4 bedroom home…which I told my friends at the time that was meant for ‘more’ even though I really didn’t know what ‘more’ meant at the time. God was planting seeds for what was to come ahead well before he revealed his plan.”
In 2016, with the desire for motherhood still burning in her heart, Page decided to become a foster mother.
In a recent interview with “Good Morning America,” Page explained that being a mother was always “at the top of [her] bucket list.”
After fostering four children, Page knew that she wanted to take the next step. On May 25, 2017, Page adopted her son, Grayson.
Less than a year after bringing Grayson home, Page received a phone call that would change both of their lives forever. The adoption agency informed her that a newborn girl named Hannah was abandoned by her birth mother and in urgent need of a home.
“Something about this is telling me to say yes to this,” Page recalled. “I’m telling you, God is telling you to say yes and I do not know why.”
It wasn’t until Page brought her daughter home on Dec. 28, 2018, that she realized Hannah had the same biological mother as Grayson.
“I don’t know that I believed in miracles for sure, [but] I have no doubt now,” she said.
That’s a wrap! The kids are tucked out after spending an afternoon with Good Morning America capturing our miracle! …
“[The caseworkers] told me her story, which was really similar to Grayson’s,” she explained. “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.”
A few weeks later, Hannah’s social worker told Page that the children were in fact siblings. A DNA test later confirmed that exciting news.
“I was happy just to give Grayson a life, and I thought that that was big, but I didn’t feel like that was enough. So to give him his sister, I couldn’t imagine anything better,” an emotional Page explained.
Page recently learned that Hannah and Grayson have another 5-month-old brother. She is now seeking to adopt him as well.
“I was a single woman in a four-bedroom house and now every room in my house is full,” Page told “Good Morning America.” “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.”
