When I was a teenager, one of my favorite programs to binge watch was MTV’s 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom.
The show, which depicted the harsh realities of teen pregnancy, followed four brave women as their lives were about to change.
Luckily, the hit series did a world of good, by teaching teenagers across North America the importance of using protection while having sex.
My favorite cast member was Catelynn Lowell, who made the brave decision to give her daughter up for adoption.
As an adopted child myself, I could empathize with her choice, as she was torn between giving her newborn a better life and being a part of her flesh and blood’s life.
Luckily, Catelynn and her husband Tyler Baltierra have an open adoption with their biological daughter Carly, and have since welcomed their second child, Novalee, into the world.
Sadly, on Monday’s episode of Teen Mom OG, it was revealed the beloved couple suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage.
