Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell made the difficult decision to put their daughter Carly up for adoption during their episode of 16 & Pregnant. Now, three years later, they still struggle with their decision — even though they know that it was the right thing to do.
“I would lie to you if I said I didn’t regret it sometimes,” Tyler admits in a sneak peek at the episode. “I was literally petrified about being the sh—y dad that my dad was.”
Tyler and Catelynn made a very selfless decision to give Carly a better chance and should feel great about that but it’s only natural that they sometimes regret not keeping her or feel sad that they don’t get to spend every day with her. It’s a battle of emotions that they will likely deal with for years to come.
Fortunately, they have each other to lend support in these dark times and will get through their lows as a team.
