Gang’s all here!
Kate Gosselin celebrated Easter by sharing a photo of her entire family — yes, all eight kids, even her “troubled” son Collin, who has been living at a special school where he gets help for his “special needs.”
Also featured in the pic are the rest of her kids — 16-year-old twins Mady and Cara, and Collin’s fellow 12-year-olds, Aaden, Alexis, Hannah, Joel, and Leah!
We’ve been seeing less and less of Collin since Kate revealed he had a multitude of behavioral problems and required special attention, which he has been getting at his new school.
“I was not able, with my own resources here, to meet his goals,” the 42-year-old mom said on her show, Kate Plus 8. “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.”
When she first revealed his “special needs” diagnosis, she insisted that Collin — whose behavioral issues are well-documented — getting help was the best recourse for the entire family.
“Collin has special needs. [There’s] a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things,” she said in August 2016. “This has been a struggle we’ve had for a very long time, and it’s one I’ve dealt with on my own. I’ve felt very alone in this. By the same token, it’s not something that has only impacted me or him — our entire family has been impacted.”
We’re thankful Collin is getting the help he needs — but we’re thrilled to see him with his brothers and sisters in this pic!
