Teen Mom Stars Know They Made Right Decision

By kellidaisy |

people coverIf you’ve been following the MTV show Teen Mom, the sequel to its cult hit 16 and Pregnant – teen parents Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are no strangers to you. In the original show, the couple placed their new baby, whom they named Carly, up for adoption. A decision that both agree was for the best.
In an interview with People Magazine, Catelynn, who is now 18 says,

 “We’re not the right parents for her now”. Tyler, who is also 18, responds “She deserves so much better.”

Although the couple, who are now engaged, both think of their daughter often, they have no regrets about giving her up for adoption. Both have sought counselling to deal with their feelings about giving up their daughter, much of which has been shown on Teen Mom.  Catelynn says that

“There’s not a day she doesn’t pass my mind. I want to make her proud.”

It seems that she is taking steps in the right direction to do so. Even though Catelynn’s mom was against the adoption, Catelynn and Tyler knew that they were making the right decision for their daughter.  You can watch Teen Mom on MTV, Tuesdays at 10pm.

    These Teen Mom stories break my heart. Not because they had babies, but because some of their situations are so difficult. Especially these two kids. They are so wise and brave, which is just incredible when you see how (some of) their parents behave, the role models they’ve had…. And to stay in a relationship under all that stress? Most fully grown adults would have trouble keeping it all together. I don’t know them, but I’m really proud of them.

    I have not read the article, but in watching the show – I think this entire family needs to move on. They gave the little girl up a year ago, and yes, it was a hard decision (although from what we see of their family, it was certainly the right one), but they bring it up in every single conversation and circumstance. “I wish Carly were here” or “Carly would want us to stay together.” News flash here… Carly was adopted to a seemingly well adjusted and mentally/emotionally healthy couple (not the case in the Baltierra/Lowell home), and she is only a year old. I also think that they are now holding on to each other “because Carly would want her parents to be together.” That said after what? Three or four weeks of Tyler freaking out over something Catelynn did three years ago and wanting to see phone records, etc.? Time to move on folks.

    They’re kids getting through a really complicated and tough time.

    I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY CATELLYN IS ON THE WHEN SHES NOT EVEN A MOM SHE GAVE UP HER THATS NOT A MOM THATS WHAT I CALL A DEFINITION OF A B***H!!! THE WHOLE POINT OF THE SHOW I THINK IS THE STRUGGLE OF BEING A MOM. SHE DECIDED TO SPREAD HER LEGS WELL JUST LIKE THAT SHE SHOULD OF BEEN A WOMEN ABOUT AND KEPT HET KID… IM 17 AND I HAVE A 7 MONTH OLD BABY AND IM NOT WITH MY BABY DADDY IM A SINGLE MOM SO THERES NO EXCUSE FOR CATELLYN… IF I WAS HER I WOULD PRAY ALOOOOT FOR MY SOUL BECAUSE THAT GIRL IS GONNA FRY IN HELL.

    I wanna say that teen mom is a great show it lets young girls know hard it is to be a mom let alone a teenage girl Im 16 and i have a 1 year old baby that i love so much. I have 1 question i don’t understand why that girl Catellyn is on that show PLEASE!!!!!! take her off she’s not a mom what mtv is doing is letting little girls think that its ok to be irresponsible get pregnant and give up your kid to adoption thats why the world is so f**k up. Catellyn and Tyler are so dumb and there gonna regret what they did all there life I wanna say Farrah, Maci, and Amber congrats you guys are great moms. PLEASE TAKE CATELLYN OFF THE SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AYANA – you seriously think that Carly would be better off in that non stable household insted of the family they chose for her? Just because you kept your child & are able to give your child what they need dosent mean everyone can. Catlynne & Tyler were wise beyond their years to realize that Carly was better off. Now I dont think they should be on the show though. There time has come to move on. Its been interesting to see how the year developed for them & how they missed their daughter & how their choice was the right one but now its time that they just leave the show quietly, in my opinion.

  7. Inigno says:

    Anyone can give birth to a child a call themselves a mother… but i takes a real woman to be a parent. This girl gave up her child so she could have a better life… Isn’t that what a mother would do? Choose a better life for their child?

  8. AYANA says:

    I Im not the only single mom so is farrah and alot more women and were doing it Farrah has her own place so does Amber and her boyfriend and they kept there baby. I have no respect for Females like Catlynne not even dogs abandon they puppies. Catlynne and tyler could of done it if they wanted to but instead they choose the easy way out giving up there baby like if it was a thing and not human. All i have to say is that she’s never gonna have a clean conscious for what she did F**k**g B***h!!!!!!

  9. Rhonda says:

    Ayana- I feel sorry for your child since you have so much anger towards a person on the tv. Maybe you should turn off the television and get off the internet and pay attention to your own child.

  10. wtf says:

    wow people are so rude i think catelynn is very strong woman for being able to not think about herself but rather her child and what is best for her child. yeah i see how you may say she abandoned her child but in reality she just did what she had to do to give her child a better life even if it meant that she her self couldn’t provide it and that shows a lot of strenght to be able to give up your child and i honestly don’t understand how people are praising Farrah she is such a child and so naive, she doesn’t even take care of her child until the whole accident with her mother occurred, come on everyone could clearly hear her daughter fall of her bed while she leaves the bedroom to make a phone call come on that makes her a better mother than catelynn and besides she doesn’t have her own place shes living in her mothers guest house, but she is coming a better mother now that she is living on her own, as for the others maci and amber they are true responsible moms but in the end its all a life learning experience

    I am adopted. I’m thankful every day that I grew up in a stable home with my awesome parents who love me, and probably spoiled me rotten. I shudder to think of what my life would have been like if my biological parents decided to keep me (like my birth mother almost did). She was 16 and he was 17. Giving me up was the most responsible thing either of them had ever done up to that point, and I’m grateful that they were smart enough to do so. And before anyone thinks this question, no, I don’t ever want to find them. You won’t find many adopted people out there who would, and when they do it’s usually health related. To the women who adamantly objected to giving up a child, SHAME ON YOU, YOU IGNORANT TRASH! My mom tried for 15 years to get pregnant, adoption was the only way for her to have a child. By your logic, people who desperately want a child can never have one, and people too irresponsible and broken to have one should be forced to care for it when they can’t even care for themselves. Hope you enjoy higher rates of domestic abuse, and like having more people in jail, because that’s what you’ll get in your perfect world.

    I watch the show, almost entirely online, and I’m continually amazed at the comments (like the ones above) that get posted from real life teen moms berating Catelynn for putting Carly up for adoption, or Maci, for continuing to live at home with her parents. There seems to be an attitude among certain circles that the only responsible way to handle having a baby as a teen is to keep and raise the baby totally on your own. For what? Pride? Yeah, maybe forgetting the condom was a bad idea, but your kid shouldn’t have to suffer an unnecessary life of poverty so you can save face. Granted, that is NOT the case with all teen moms, obviously, but it’s a dangerous attitude. The child’s best interest should come first. If the mother and her family can offer a normal, enriching environment, great, but if not, choosing another option, like adoption, doesn’t make the a bad person. Like the above poster (Inigno) said, just because a person can give birth and can love the baby they gave birth to, does not make them ready or prepared to take on the full role of the parent. There’s no shame in realizing that about yourself and doing the best thing for the kid, who DESERVES parents that are ready and willing.

    My thought is that any of us should judge her for giving up her child. I was 36yrs old when I had my third child to whom I was engaged to this Attorney who I thought had his crap together. I lived with my parents with my two older children because I had two failed marriages and one was sent to prison for beating the crap out of me. The day I found out I was pregnant I was saddened and even a very close friend gave me the number to an abortion clinic, I could not kill this unborn child and I knew that this child who I loved very much needed a better and more stable life. So I did talk to an adoption attorney and interviewed a bunch of couples. When I talked and meet this couple I knew instantly that if I could choose my parents I would choose them. They were with me two weeks before the baby was born I was induced because I had toxemia and the Doctor even told me at my very first visit that I should have a medical abortion because I could have a stroke and die. I did not want to hear that I knew this little guy who I love very much need parents who can take care of him and give him the life he deserves. When I delivered him they asked me if I wanted to hold him first and I said no to let his mother hold him it was very hard but we roomed together with the baby and the whole family held and I held him and feed him it was a wonderful experience. Their is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of him but I wanted the very best and he truly has the best parents ever. This is a very happy ending. Karin

    Hey you know I think what Catelynn and Tyler did for there daughter was a wonderful choice. to the people who have commented and being rude are the ones who aren’t mature enough seriously like if i had a child right now in the situation i am in i would find a wonderful family for he/she. I know how hard Tyler and Catelynn’s life was I grew up exactly the same as they did. If my mom was as awsome as Catelynn she would have put me in an adoption family instead of making me live in an unstable home and have to move from home to home and deal with drug addicts and alcoholics. My dad used to make my life a LIVING HELL and my mom DOESNT CARE ABOUT ME! oh and my brother ….well thats another story. but back to Catelynn and Tyler, I would love to know they personally because i have learned a lot from them. plus just because they gave up there daughter DOES NOT mean they don’t love her or want her. they want the world for her. and there not just staying together because thats what carly would want it’s what they choose to do..they love each other. and I want them to stay on TEEN MOM! you rude people need to get a life or stop looking at the negatives and realize the freakin positives !!
