'Teen Mom' Star Adopts After Giving Her Own Child Up for Adoption
Ultimately, Catelynn and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra decided that they couldn't give Carly the life that she deserved and they made the selfless decision to place her in a more stable home.
In an ironic twist, Catelynn is now an adoptive mother as she has adopted her younger sister Sarah Haviland.
"She was living on a drug addict's porch without any food...what else was I supposed to do?" Catelynn explained to In Touch magazine.
Given that Sarah is already 16 years old, it was a little less daunting than raising a child. "We're not raising her, but guiding her," she said.
Catelynn and Tyler do seem to really have their act together, so hopefully they can continue to guide her along the right path as she transitions into adulthood.
