As the four characters express their desire to take in the young lad, Cain is put in a difficult position.
After all, Kerry is Kyle’s biological grandmother and is always eager to be part of his life.
While Zak, who is Kyle’s biological grandfather and Cain’s dad, already has experience looking after the youngster with his estranged wife Joanie.
