The YouTubecommunity sparked outrage over the situation and even helped raised money for the young two kids’ mother Rose to get custody awarded back to her. The oldest three boys are Heather’s children and are still in the home. For a while it was unclear if the family would ever make videos again, and if they were going to lose custody of the other three children. Heather uploaded a video late Sunday evening announcing that the family’s videos were coming back.
