Just 20 days after a Pennsylvania judge granted Jon Gosselin temporary custody of one of his sons, Collin Gosselin, a photo shows the 14-year-old home for the holidays.
In 2016, Jon’s ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, made headlines after she told People that she had made the decision to put Collin in a treatment center after he was diagnosed with special needs.
Although Kate never went into specifics regarding the center or her son’s diagnosis, she told People that she felt very alone when making the decision:
“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. 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.”
Now two years after that decision was made, Collin has been moved out of the treatment center and into Jon’s home.
Earlier this year, the dad of eight first revealed that he had been in contact with Collin after he and Hannah had visited him at the center. He later posted a photo of Collin joining them in picking out a Christmas tree:
And yesterday, on Christmas day, Collin was also seen with a smile on his face enjoying Christmas Day with family:
Hundreds of people commented on how good Collin looked since moving in with his father:
