I feel like God had a plan all along for our family to be created by adoption. As a model and talent agent I had "raised" hundreds of kids and teens over my 34 year career span as an agent. I wanted to really change lives, not just with a movie booking, but a place to sleep, a structure, and a forever home!!" Read more about Page's decision o adopt and how she found her kids at Modeling Mentor.
So, what does a woman who's done it all do next? Producing! "I am working with a 19-year old breakout country singer named Madeline McDonald," Page tells me. "I was a producer on her first album we completed in Nashville. We also have been simultaneously have working on her film career as well. She just confirmed the lead in a film called OILDALE, where she will pay a 19-year old CUNTRY BREAKOUT SINGER!! This never has happen in my entire 35 year career. I am also a producer on her film!"
