Hannah Gosselin reunites with her mother Kate and other siblings for sweet family photos
Hannah Gosselin is home and sharing happy moments with her mom and 7 siblings again.
Fans of the Gosselin family will be aware of the sad division that has been tearing the family apart in recent times, with Hannah Gosselin estranged from her mother and distancing herself from her siblings.
A CUTE FAMILY PHOTO WITH A HALLOWEEN THEME
The photo 18-year-old Mady posted shows Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aaden, Joel, Mady, and her twin Cara in a field holding Halloween pumpkins and grinning happily.
This is the first time Hannah has been photographed with her siblings in a long time since she was said to be taking her father Jon's side against her mother, Kate.
A CUSTODY BATTLE TURNED UGLY
Although custody of the 8 children was awarded to Kate, Jon has been contesting this through the courts, and Hannah was the only one of the children who had shown herself willing to take his side.

Congrats Hannah on your first day of school, proud of you. I admire your bravery starting fresh!!! I Love you very much and we have worked really hard to get here. Dedication has really paid off. I’m so happy you integrated yourself into the community, you made friends all summer and now you will grow and graduate with them. I’m honored to be your father!!! Love you, Dad #newbeginnings
A CHILD DIVIDED
Hannah has been featured extensively in her father's posts on social media, and he has declared that she is living with him - which Kate vehemently denies, and has had several documents presented at court to prevent.
A BITTER DIVISION THAT IS HURTING THE CHILDREN
Fans of "Kate And Jon Plus 8" will remember that the couple had an explosive and contentious relationship, even back in the 'good times,' and the divorce has exacerbated the anger and the aggression.
A couple who loved each other so much they faced any odds to bring 8 children into the world, now bicker and tear at each other and use those same children as a battleground.
Hopefully, Hannah and her siblings can broker a peace between their parents, and bring about a ceasefire in the custody battle.
JON AND KATE TOGETHER FOR THE TWIN'S BIRTHDAY
It may seem like it was yesterday, but the Gosselins and their 8 children first came into their own as reality stars in 2007.
Jon and Kate's marriage fell apart, but their children have grown and the twins, Mady and Cara, just turned 18.
Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aaden, Joel and Colin are now 14 - teenagers and growing into young men and women.
Jon and Kate set their differences aside to wish the twins a happy birthday, and Kate demonstrated some anxiety at the thought of their leaving for college.
The twins were seven-years-old and the sextuplets were four when the show was launched, and they grew up under the scrutiny of the public. The constant warring between their parents has forced the children to take up 'sides' and the twins have stood firmly for their mother.
It is to be hoped the Gosselins can set their differences aside for the sake of their children.
