On Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin had to deal with unexpected consequence of sending her son Collin to get help for his special needs — she had to celebrate her sextuplet’s birthday without him home.

“Singing to everyone as a group, and Collin wasn’t there — it grabbed me,” she confessed. “But overall, I was comforted knowing that each of my children are receiving what they need.”

Kate previously confessed that Collin was getting help away from help because she couldn’t accommodate his needs on her own.

“I was not able with my own resources here to meet his needs,” she explained. “He needs to be in an environment to help him learn the skills and gain the insight to be the best Collin that he can be.”
