Despite the family's struggles, Mike and Darla say their 13-month-old son isn't neglected. "Cayden's taken care of, believe me," Mike says. "He's a happy baby. His diaper's changed, he's bathed, and he's definitely loved." Mike's greatest fear, he says, is losing custody of Cayden or any of his kids.

Darla admits it's hard to take care of a baby when you're addicted to drugs, but she says she does her best. 

Oprah says Mike and Darla are in denial. "Babies pick up on the energy that's in the family," Oprah says. "You guys are fooling yourselves if you think you're doing a service to [Cayden]."
