Karen and Deon Derrico had triplets Dawsyn, De’Aren, and Dyver in July. However, after their premature delivery, the family was stunned to hear that Dawsyn was born with a hole in her heart.
The precious newborn stayed at the hospital and had multiple operations. Eventually siblings De’Aren and Dyver went home and while Dawsyn did finally go home, she was readmitted again due to health concerns.
Mom, Karen Derrico says of herself, “I feel like I’m being looked upon like, ‘Girl, you’ve got 14 children, you should have this,’ and it’s like, ‘I don’t.’”
Karen Derrico was sad beyond measure that she had to take Dawsyn back to the hospital. She continued, “I’m looking at her and she’s looking at me like I’m all she has and it’s like, what do you do? I have to go through that and then leave her in there to come back home. It’s like this weak mode.”
The entire Doubling Down With The Derricos episode is very emotional as the rest of the Derrico family tried to help Karen as she wept about her baby. One son wiped away her tears and one daughter stroked her back.
