'Teen Mom' stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra gave their daughter Carly up for adoption five years ago. Now, in a shocking twist, Catelynn has adopted her own... On Catelynn Lowell's episode of 16 & Pregnant, we watched her make the heart-wrenching decision about whether or not to give her daughter Carly 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.
