Sharon’s Heart-wrenching Decision
Viewers may recall that Dennis didn’t make it after the show’s 35h anniversary special aired. On the same night that his son died, Sharon gave birth to Kayden. Since then, she’s been unable to cope with bringing new life into the world and losing his son on the same day. Does the difficult decision he’ll make have something to do with giving up her newborn for adoption?
Despite having Kayden in her arms, there seems to be a disconnect between the mother and the child. She’s grieving the death of her son but will her Kayden also has his needs. Will Sharon be able to take care of her newborn? Is she capable of being a mother to her new baby even while she’s grieving?
The child will be a constant reminder of Dennis death since he was born at the same night Dennis died. Does this mean she’ll resent him over the years or will she pour all her love to him now that Dennis is gone?
