No matter what decisions we make in life, we eventually all end up coming home. Our homes are eternal sources of care and support, and family ties are built on strong and enduring pillars. What makes a family is love, and I love my family. In 2017, a Colorado woman, Katie Page, adopted her son Grayson.
Before meeting Grayson, who was abandoned in hospital, Katie looked after four foster children. She had problems with infertility and had always dreamed of adopting a child. About a month after she adopted Grayson, she called an agency and told them that a little girl named Hannah needed a nursing home. When the agency began promoting Hannah, Katie noticed some similarities between the children.
The story of this little girl is similar to that of Grayson. They have the same spots on the body and the same dimples on the chin. The first name of the biological mother and her medical bracelet are the same as Grayson’s, but Hannah does not have a typical name. Hannah’s biological mother used a different surname when adopting the children, which was considered an option for her siblings.
You could call it a maternal intuition. Katie Page began investigating the matter when she inquired about Hannah’s biological mother and had a DNA test done on the child. According to Page, Hannah was exposed to methamphetamine in the womb.
Two years ago Katie found out that the two children were siblings to another child, one-year-old Jackson. As she is a single mother, Katie decided to give Jackson a chance to grow up with his biological siblings.
“When Jackson came along I just felt the best I could give him are his family and siblings that he identifies and feels connected to.”
After they adopted Jackson in June, about 30 friends and family members attended their virtual adoption ceremony. The family made a connection in a video call : Kaci, Dustin and Whitney, the adoptive parents of two little girls who have the same biological mother as Katie and her three children.
The remarkable parents organized a beach trip to Florida, where the five children met. This made Katie overjoyed that she could adopt Grayson, but she felt terrible that she could not give him any information about his biological family.
“Three sisters and a brother now sit beside and will grow up with him. He has more love and family members that love him than I ever dreamed possible.”
Katie Page shared a photo of the five siblings on Instagram, and captioned it: “This is us.”
Impressive story of love!
