She is a big help, and she talked to her son, Deon, about his role as a parent.
Deon has struggled with being there for his baby, Dawsyn Derrico, who needs heart surgery. Dawsyn is one of their newest triplets, and Deon remembers losing Carter, one of their last triplets. He told Karen he didn’t want to go with Karen to Dawsyn’s surgery.
The reason Deon didn’t want to go to the surgery is that he said he was worried he’ll break down. He spoke with his mother about his concerns.
