On this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, Catelynn Lowell & Tyler Baltierra addressed the issues they had concerning their first born daughter, Carly.
For six years, the pair have endured an on-air power struggle with Carly’s adoptive parents, Brandon and Teresa Davis. The biological parents feel they should have more influence over the child’s upbringing. However, the adoptive parents insist anything contentious is NOT up for debate.
Last week, it was revealed that Catelynn and Tyler debated whether to post banned, private photos of Carly. Admitting that it would be a bad idea and risk access to Carly being revoked forever. However, in a moment of anger, Tyler posted the images to a Facebook fan page anyway.
This week, in order to move forward, Catelynn and Tyler had a mediation with the support of their adoption counsellor, Dawn M. Baker. The meetup started out heated but ended up in a positive place when both sides admitted the root of the problem was fear: Fear that Carly would not want to communicate with her birth parents in adulthood, or turn her back on her adoptive parents later in life.
Soon after their talk, Brandon and Teresa brought out Carly!
They hid her face on the show and there are relatively few photos of her in the public eye. However, we’ve shared a few photos of Carly here so fans can be reminded of what she looked like as a baby and (somewhat) recently.
