Teen Mom's Catelynn and Tyler open up about their adoption struggles
Five years ago, Teen Mom stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra made the very difficult decision of giving up their first daughter, Carly, for adoption.
As Carly grows up, the relationship between Lowell and Baltierra and her adoptive parents, Teresa and Brandon Davis, appears to have become more strained. And on Monday's episode of Teen Mom OG, we witnessed just how much tension there is between the two couples.
Lowell and Baltierra are currently very upset about the fact that they have so little visitation time with Carly, and things came to a head when the reality TV stars defied her adoptive parents and posted a photo of her on social media.
During a recent episode, which can be seen in a video obtained by People magazine, Teresa calls up the couple and tells them that she thinks it's time that they all met with the social worker for "an open, honest conversation" about their adoption plan.
Lowell then asks Teresa, "Have you guys thought about us getting all together after our conversation, like with Carly?" After a long pause, she finally agrees.
Following the brief phone conversation Lowell has with Teresa, Baltierra can be seen getting angry as he says, "Honestly, I'd love to see Carly, but this conversation really needs to happen. I'm saying I want to let them know before anything gets aired on TV, like I'm letting you know that the cameras have captured my frustration, my opinions been expressed strongly."
Lowell also weighs in, explaining that she wants to ask Teresa and Brandon a very important question when they meet. "We feel like we're always sacrificing our feelings and emotions to put ourselves in your shoes, but do you ever do that for us?"
