Mom Learns Her 2 Adopted Kids Are Biological Siblings: 'They Were Meant to Find Each Other'

Mom Learns Her 2 Adopted Kids Are Biological Siblings: 'They Were Meant to Find Each Other'

A Colorado mother got the surprise of a lifetime when she learned that her two adopted children are biologically brother and sister.

Katie Page, of Parker, Colorado, had just adopted Grayson, now 2, in May 2017 when she received a call about a month later that a baby girl, Hannah, now 1, was in need of a foster home. She immediately took the little girl in and quickly recognized some similarities between the two little ones.

“There were features on the babies that were very similar. They both have a chin dimple and the other feature is one that only a mama would see because it’s covered by their diaper!” Page, 36, tells PEOPLE.

Page believed the babies came from different mothers, as the biological mother had listed different last names when placing the babies for adoption. No one at the adoption agency suspected the babies were siblings either. Page, a single mother, says her family and friends were in disbelief when she brought up the possibility.

“They were as shocked as I was. Everybody thought I was crazy,” she recalls to PEOPLE. “I think everyone thought it was a far stretch because I didn’t have that much to go on but my intuition was telling me there was more to the story. We kept it pretty quiet until there was more information to support the theory.”

Page began to unfold the mystery and eventually learned that Hannah and Grayson did have the same mother. Page confirmed the news with a DNA test, and she says the kids being related made it easier for her to officially adopt Hannah in December 2018.

“Because they were related, she was able to stay in my home –  judges rule that way,” Page, who is divorced, tells PEOPLE. “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.”

Page says she never expected her family’s story to garner so much attention, but she plans to share the sweet story with Hannah and Grayson when they are older.

For now, Page says, Grayson and Hannah are having a blast getting to know eac

Everything You Need to Know About the Women's March 2019: Locations, Speakers and Recent Controversy

Everything You Need to Know About the Women's March 2019: Locations, Speakers and Recent Controversy

For the third year in a row the Women’s March is set this weekend to mobilize protestors around the country and the world to march against the policies of President Donald Trump.

Still, the movement has been battling negative press of its own.

Here’s everything you need to know about the event and its controversies.

The co-president of Women’s March Inc., Tamika Mallory, has been criticized for her association with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has often used anti-Semetic and homophobic rhetoric. She upset many supporters of the Women’s March after posting a photo with him and describing him as “the GOAT” (greatest of all time).

A longtime activist, Mallory and the other founders organized the first Women’s March in 2017, the day after President Donald Trump‘s inauguration. Hundreds of thousands of people gathered for the march in Washington, D.C. and three million people gathered globally to protest Trump’s stance on women’s rights and civil rights.

Despite her organization’s anti-hate premise, Mallory didn’t fully condemn Farrakhan when she appeared on The View with co-president Bob Bland on Jan. 14.

Mallory has previously denounced discrimination but has taken care to delineate her personal relationship with Farrakhan and some of his past works, which she reiterated again this week.

On The View Mallory argued that while she does not agree “with many of Minister Farrakhan’s statements,” she can still appreciate his efforts on behalf of the black community.

“Everywhere that I go is difficult,” Mallory toldThe View‘s Meghan McCain. “The Women’s March was very difficult. I met with a lot of women who did not even understand why race was important… part of the conversation as it relates to women’s rights issues.”

“There was a lot of offensive rhetoric that I heard and, you know, just because you go into a space with someone does not mean that you agree with everything that they say,” Mallory said.

The organization also faced a wave of anger because of accusations of anti-Semitism amongst the leadership, which stemmed from a lengthy December report by Tablet, a Jewish news

Princess Anne Had a Surprising Response When Asked About Her Dad Prince Philip’s Car Crash

Princess Anne Had a Surprising Response When Asked About Her Dad Prince Philip’s Car Crash

Princess Anne is not here for chit-chat!

The royal, 68, stepped out for an official royal outing in Lancashire on Friday, and as the first royal family member to be seen in public since Prince Philip’s car crash, she was asked about her father’s condition.

“I’ve no idea. You know where I am? Same place as you,” she told reporters with a laugh. She then quickly made her way inside the event.

As she left, a bold reporter asked: “Any word on the Duke, Your Highness?

“Not since I’ve been in there” she quipped.

Anne, who is the only daughter of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, was named the hardest working royal of 2018 with 447 domestic appearances and another 71 outings overseas. But she has strict rules for fan interaction during her outings — and even avoids shaking hands with fans.

“It’s become a shaking hands exercise rather than a walkabout,” she said in the recent HBO documentary Queen of the World. “Phones are bad enough, but the iPads — you can’t even see their heads. No idea who you’re talking to.”

“I either don’t bother or just say, ‘Look, if you want to ask…I suggest you put that down,’” she continued. “It is weird. People don’t believe they’ve experienced the event unless they’ve taken a photograph.”

On Thursday, the Duke of Edinburgh was involved in a car crash in Norfolk. The 97-year-old royal was uninjured, although those who were on-hand said there was blood at the scene after Philip overturned his Land Rover following a collision with a Kia driven by a 28-year-old woman with a 9-month-old baby in the backseat.

Khloé Kardashian Gets 'Camel Toe Concealer' from Mystery Fan: 'I Love This Person'

Khloé Kardashian Gets 'Camel Toe Concealer' from Mystery Fan: 'I Love This Person'

If there’s one thing most loyal watchers of Keeping Up with the Kardashians know, it’s that Khloé Kardashian has a pretty shameless obsession with her cameltoe (a slang term for the situation that happens when tight clothing accentuates a woman’s nether regions). Kardashian has even famously named hers Kamille the Camel. So when one mystery fan sent her a hilarious package with a special device to use when she doesn’t want Kamille to come out to play, Khloé immediately had to share it with her followers.

As Khloé opened up a box, she revealed a handwritten note that said, “Dear Khloe, I heard you might have some use for these. I hope they work.”

“I don’t know this person, but I don’t want to give out their information,” Khloé said as she covered the name of the sender with her hand. “Uh, camel toe concealer. I love this person!”

The Camel Toe Concealer, available for $29.99 on Amazon, is a reusable silicone adhesive designed to wear under bikinis, shorts, tights and leggings when a woman wants to cover up her cameltoe.

Khloé first introduced the world to Kamille back 2015 in an outfit of the day shot posted on her Instagram. “Today I let Jen and Joyce not only do my hair and make up but I actually let them style me today. And I must say I love what these two ladies created 😻 oh Kamille the camel 🐪🐫 is trying to say hi! I hope she listens today 🙊,” she captioned the photo.

She’s also documented some of Kamille’s most memorable fashion moments on her app. “Ain’t no shame in the camel

AGT Champ Terry Fator's Mom Accuses Him of Elder Abuse, Questions His Reaction to His Sister's Death

AGT Champ Terry Fator's Mom Accuses Him of Elder Abuse, Questions His Reaction to His Sister's Death

Famed ventriloquist Terry Fator has been accused of elder abuse by his mother and not answering lingering questions about his sister’s death.

According to a complaint filed in federal court on Wednesday and obtained by The Blast, Fator’s mother, Marie Fator Sligh, 74, states that she wants to legally “terminate” her relationship with her son, 53, who won the second season of America’s Got Talent.

She alleges that Fator’s behavior has negatively affected her “health and well-being” and that he’s used his fame and wealth after leaving the reality show to “bully, torment, harass and intimidate” her. In the case, in which Sligh is representing herself, she also alleges that he sought to “obstruct and prevent his Mother from investigating the death of her daughter in home.”

In a statement to PEOPLE, Fator’s rep called the allegations “baseless and defamatory.”

“This is not the first time that Ms. Sligh has surfaced with these sorts of baseless and defamatory allegations against Mr. Fator in an effort to extract unwarranted financial concessions from him. In the face of similar conduct by Ms. Sligh in the past, on February 6, 2017 the District Court of Clark County Nevada entered a judgment against Ms. Sligh that included a Restraining Order prohibiting her from having any contact with Mr. Fator or appearing within 250 yards of his residence, place of business or place of employment,” the statement reads. “Mr. Fator has no intention of dignifying Ms. Sligh’s latest unfounded claims with any further comment.”

After claiming that the TV personality caused his mother “humiliation, anxiety, embarrassment and financial difficulty,” the documents address the unexpected death of Fator’s sister, Deborah Fator Beard, who was found dead in Fator’s apartment in 2015. According to the documents, the coroner’s report ruled it a suicide from “multiple drug toxicity,” and she was found naked in a bathroom with a half-chewed pill in her mouth.

Sligh’s filing alleges that prior to Beard’s death, she did not have a relationship with her brother for several years until he decided in December 2014 to contact her. Shortl
