Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans and her husband David Eason have stated that they would like for her son, Jace, to live with an unexpected family member. Jace recently ran away from Barbara Evans’ home and has been placed in foster care. Continue reading to see where Jenelle thinks her son should live.
Jace Evans Placed In Foster Care After Runaway Attempt
Jenelle Evans and her husband David Eason have been at the center of a lot of family drama in recent months. Jenelle’s son Jace attempted to run away for the third time in September.
Shortly after, Jace was placed in the care of his 70-year-old grandmother, Barbara Evans. The 14-year-old boy also accused David Eason of assault. David Eason was investigated and charged with misdemeanor child abuse in October.

“The defendant unlawfully and willfully did being the parent of [Jace Evans], who was a child less than 16 years of age, inflict physical injury on that child,” a legal document stated. “The physical injury inflicted caused marks on the right arm and left and right side of the neck and was inflicted by other than accidental means.”
Jace continued to live with Barbara until recently. It was reported that he ran away for a fourth time and has now been placed in foster care. This occurred after his grandmother took away his phone after he’d gotten in trouble at school.
According to a source who spoke with The Ashley, Jenelle Evans has been blocking her son’s access to medications he needs. However, the Teen Mom alum denies that completely.
Now, she and David Eason have spoken out about who they believe Jace should live with.
Jenelle Evans Believes Jace Should Live With David’s Relative
A source close to Jenelle Evans and her family said that she would like it if Jace could live with David’s sister, April Eason. The couple left their other children with David Eason’s sister over Thanksgiving so they could have some alone time.
“That is something Jenelle had been pushing for,” an insider close to Jenelle told The Ashley. “If Jace couldn’t come back to live with her, Jenelle wanted to have him go live with April.”
The Teen Mom star has stated that April has a son around Jace’s age. The two boys get along well. However, that’s nowhere near enough to get a judge to agree with signing off on Jace living with David’s sister full-time.

There is no biological relationship between Jace and April. So, it is pretty unlikely that he would ever wind up placed in her care.
On top of that, David’s brother had recently been staying with April after being released from prison. It has been reported that he is no longer living there, but this would also pose a potential problem.
