A Plead for Help
“Dear Dad, I’m not trying to trick you, but I still love you,” Collin, 15, wrote in a June 2017 letter, “I told Mom (Kate Gosselin) I want to live with you, she said no. But right? She can’t choose for me. I’m old enough now, I’m YOUR son, not hers. She was abusive to me after I left your house. I’m sorry. Take this to court because … you’re my dad, my saviour.”
In the letter that Collin’s roommate reportedly smuggled out said: “Please help me and let me meet Colleen ( Jon’s girlfriend), I’m counting on you to get me out of here. Daddy, I love you. save me. Please come FAST. I love you. Help me. BYE.”
Collin now lives with his Father
Collin, who now lives with his father, and sister Hannah, spent three years locked in the special needs institution despite only being diagnosed with ADHD, Jon told the source.
“Kate … couldn’t deal with him,” the Pennsylvania native went on to say. “He was alone for three and a half years with no parents, all alone. It was inhumane.”
Raised money for a lawyer
After Jon received the letter written in crayon from his son, he raised the money to get a lawyer and went through the courts to get joint legal custody only to have Collin moved to another institution five hours away in Pittsburgh.
He explained that he would drive to see his son as much as he could “I’d drive out to Pittsburgh to visit him as much as I could and eventually it progressed to overnight stays before he was finally released into my custody,” .
He stated that Collin has good grades and is now an honour roll student. “He is really smart and really intuitive.”
