We definitely feel for this kid! Collin Gosselin has been spending some time with his dad Jon and his sister Hannah. And sadly, it looks like all good things must come to an end (for now). Word is Collin Gosselin has to go back to the facility where he's being treated for his undisclosed special needs ... and he's not too happy about it.

  • Eric Rodriguez, Jon's friend and the barber who cut Collin's hair, recently opened up about the 14-year-old and his desire to be back home.

    "When Collin was here, he got a little down when I asked him if he was excited to go back [to the facility] … He was bummed about going back," he exclusively told Radar Online about Collin feeling bummed to leave Jon and Hannah. "He just said to me, 'I can't wait for Thanksgiving break! And to come home.'"

    In addition to Collin and Hannah, 14, Jon and Kate Gosselin also have Mady and Cara, 18, and Aaden, Leah, Alexis, and Joel, 14.

  • Collin's visit home comes as news surfaced that Jon filed for full custody of him -- likely indicating he wants his son with him sooner than later.

    In Touch Weekly reports Jon filed for "full legal and physical custody" of Collin on October 24. Jon Gosselin already has custody of his daughter Hannah after a judge ruled in his favor back in April. (Kate filed a "motion for reconsideration" a month later that got denied.)

    "I asked him if he was excited about going to regular school and he said, yeah he's super excited about it," Eric Rodriguez told Radar Online. "He just said he didn't like his other school that he was in before that facility, the one that Kate had him in."

  • It's been two years since Kate Gosselin sent Collin away to get treatment for his "special needs."

    "Collin has special needs," Kate Gosselin once told People about her decision to send him to a treatment center.

    "[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.

    [Collin is] enrolled in a program that is helping him learn the skills he needs to be the best him he can be. We miss him so much, so it's been hard because there is a huge hole in our family without him here. But it comforts us to know he's where he needs to be right now, and I can feel good about that."
  • And by the sound of things, this 14-year-old might be coming home soon.

    ... at least we hope!
