Catelynn and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra ultimately decided to put their daughter Carly up for adoption as they didn't feel that they could provide the kind of life that they wanted to give her at that time.
As the years have gone on, the couple has endured many struggles, including each of them having a parent that struggles from addiction as well as the normal ups and downs that any couple goes through.
In spite of it all, they have forged forward and even appeared on VH1's Couples Therapy to work on making their relationship even stronger.
Most recently, Catelynn became an adoptive mother herself as she adopted her younger sister Sarah Haviland, whom Catelynn says was "living on a drug addict's porch without any food."
As a result of all that she's done, Catelynn has now been recognized by Canada's TeenzFav as the year's "Most Inspirational Teen" and to make the moment even more special, Catelynn's fiance Tyler presented her with the award.
Watch the video below to see Tyler presenting the award to Catelynn as well as her acceptance speech.
