This adoptive mother's shocking story is a perfect example of how you never know what life has in store for you. Katie Page decided to move to a new city, start a new life, and do what she felt she was meant to do.
Katie Page, the adoptive mother, decided to move to Colorado after her divorce, to start a new life. She accepted a new job offer and bought a four-bedroom house, which she renovated all by herself.
I knew 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.
A couple of weeks later, Katie received a letter that would change her life: an invitation to participate in a foster careprogram and host children with complex backgrounds. Katie eventually decided to open her home to a child. Living with and helping these children stimulated her maternal instinct, and she began to consider the idea of adopting.
And, as if by fate, Katie soon received a call asking her if she wanted to foster a newborn that was abandoned by his mother at the hospital. The boy was only 4 days old and suffered from neonatal abstinence syndrome because his mother was a drug addict and had been using drugs throughout the pregnancy.
Katie accepted to take care of the child. After a few months, seeing that the mother decided not to claim him, Page began the process of adopting him. Months later, Page received another call from her agency. They had another case that was similar to her son's, except this time, the baby was a girl. The mother had abandoned her at the same hospital. Katie, who was touched by the baby's story, couldn't say no and, once more, accepted to take care of the child.
After a while, Katie started to notice similarities between the two children, so she decided to investigate and find out who the girl's mother was. She shared her suspicions with social workers, but they had no information for her. Katie believed that these similarities were no coincidence, and after getting off the phone with a social worker, she was convinced of it.
As she suspected, the two children that were brought into her life were siblings! Fate had decided to make her their foster mother, thus allowing the two siblings to grow up together.
An incredible and lovely story that went viral as soon as it was shared. What's even more unbelievable is that Katie managed to locate their biological mother, who was pregnant again, and intended to do the same with her third child. Katie has begun the adoption process so that the little one can happily grow up with his brother and sister.
Katie's family has been growing since she decided to move and change her life, a decision that has turned Katie into a totally different, more accomplished, woman.
