Soon-to-be teen parents, Catelynn and Tyler, think adoption is best for their baby, but question if they'll be strong enough to let go.
I am so proud of Catelynn and Tyler. It is not an easy decision. I was adopted when I was born. Its not easy on either side for the birth mother or the adoptee. I deal with it every day. I have never watched them because i always thought it would hurt to much. But today on my 20th birthday I decided to. I cried through the whole thing because they are such loving and caring birth parents. My birth parents havent tried to be in my life. I am very proud of Catelynn and Tyler , they have gained my respect. It is not easy.
I never understood why Catelynn was on Teen Mom. I agree putting Carly up for adoption was best, but why did she need to be on Teen Mom? There were a few other 16 & Pregnant episodes about adoption. All the Teen Mom seasons were just Catelynn and Tyler dealing with their druggie parents and being like "oh we haven't been to see Carly in ages." They did the right thing, but I just don't understand why we had to watch seasons of Teen Mom of them and have them make money off Teen Mom when they weren't doing any parenting just dealing with their ****** up families.
Yeah that part was a little bothersome. When I went through my adoption, I was never rushed, I was actually encouraged to spend as much time as I could with the baby. Time I wouldn't be able to get back, and time I would eventually regret not spending with him. I understand that Brandon and Theresa probably wanted to see their baby, but they really seem like patient people so I think Dawn just wanted to get the process rushed along.
My favorite teen parents! Catelynn and Tyler made the best decision for their daughter. I cried so much during this episode! Such an amazing story. They're really good people. I'm sure if/when Carly sees this episode of this show, she'll understand why they did what they did and really appreciate it. That baby is so loved! And it shows.
Catelynn & Tyler have the strength that many adults don't have. Being 16 they were able to put their child before themselves and realize they couldn't afford to have a child nor could they provide for her. What courage and respect they have for their daughter. I can understand as a mother how their parents felt. As I watched I tried to put myself in the situation and it was an emotional show for me for I have two daughter not much younger than them. The difference would be that I would have offered to help with my grandchild so they could continue their education. Then I believe I would have supported my daughters decision. I commend the two of them for not only thinking of themselves but the baby that was involved. I hope their adoption is OPEN and they remain in their daughter live. Best luck to both of you.
Makes me cry. This is sosad. But I must say Butch is an ass and April needs to grow up. For crying out loud she calls her daughter a *****. she is cruel to Catelyn an it makes me so mad. Catelyn has a heart of gold and Thank God she wanted what was best for her baby girl. I would love to meet Catelyn just to tell her how wonderful she is. And the people ******** about the adoption need to sit back and realize adoption is much better then abortion or keeping a baby that you can't take care.
they did what was best for there situation. i admire them so much i could never give my child up because im selfish. what they did was UNSELFISH. go catelynn and ty!
im adopted and i talk to my mom and dont feel adopted at all. i have a great relationship with both of my mothers and i have a WONDERFUL husband now and im 18 and were having our first child in january .
I cried like a baby watching this. I could never give my child up for adoption but i understand why they did. they are my favorite couple on this show.
The reason why I love Catelynn and Tyler the most is because Tyler wasn't a jerk and a jackass around Catelynn while she was pregnant . He supported her and agreed with her to get it adopted.
HeatherMoshes- I'm adopted myself and I don't have abandonment ussues. When I was 25 yrs old I finally met my birthmom and she told me why she couldn't have me when she was 18 yrs old. She wanted the best for me I was placed into my adopted parents arms when I was 10 days old. I am happy that I have loving parents. But now a days teens are having sex and are way younger. Parents need to also start talking too their teens about sex and protection. But you need to talk with someone about adoption it will be the best for you since you don't believe in adoption?? Because without adoption women who can't get pregnant can have s baby from someone else that will love the baby and can give the baby a better life than the baby's parents that think its in their best interest for the baby to have a better life than they have had. I am proud of Catelynn and Tyler since they were young and it was better for the baby too have a better life than they did.
that video was too sad to watch im sure they can raise their baby because im 16 an im raising mine and seeing this breaks my heart
I was 15 when I had my son... and he was a Blessing to me :) We are close in age, but we made it work!
I was adopted into a loving home at birth too. I agree with you. I cry every time I see this too.
HeatherMoshes- I'm adopted myself and I don't have abandonment issues. I understand why my biological mother gave me up for adoption and I respect it. I have a great family and she did it because she loved me and wanted the best for me. Just because you don't believe in adoption doesn't mean that everyone else shouldn't believe in it. They did it so their daughter would have a better life and she does.
Hayes- Its their choice. Its their daughter. You don't have to agree with their choice that they made but she is in a better environment and is loved. You probably could raise a baby...they felt that they couldn't. You don't have to agree with it but at least respect the fact that they did it so their daughter would have a better life and a chance at life.
i think everybody who is judging catelynn and tyler are very close minded . giving carly up for adoption was the best choice for them at the time, they loved her enough to know that they couldn't give her the life that she deserved and allowed someone who could give her a good life a chance. that was a very responsible, and rational decision. everybody is wanting to eliminate every option for a pregnant woman 1st abortion now adoption...its not your body, its not your choice! people being forced to be parents when they dont want to beor are unable to is what leads to children being mistreated and abused.you stupid *****!!!
As an adoptive parent I am jelous beyond belief! I so wih my daughters birthparents were more like them! Adoption is a beautiful and very necessary thing!
As an adoptive mother I just want to point out, that they didn't "get rid of it" they did what was right for THEIR situation!000a
God this soo emotional..:((
