Fans of Teen Mom admire Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra for making the selfless decision to give up their daughter for adoption. While the decision obviously was not an easy one, it is something that the couple is glad that they did. Not only did they ensure that their daughter would have the kind of life that they knew they couldn't provide for her, but they have also used their story to help others thinking about adoption.
One way they are doing this is by appearing in a commercial for the agency that they worked with, Bethany Christian Services. In it, both Catelynn and Tyler talk about the agency and how they helped them to make their decision about adoption. It is great to see these two sharing their story with others who are considering adoption.
They are also giving back in other ways, too. Catelynn is keeping in touch with a girl who is set to appear on 16 and Pregnant (not the one airing in March, but the one following) who is contemplating adoption.
Since they appeared on Teen Mom, other young teens feel that they are easy to relate to. These aren't some huge Hollywood celebrities telling them about adoption, but rather two normal teens who just happen to be on television.
Some people wonder why MTV continued to follow Catelynn and Tyler after their 16 and Pregnant episode, but it is good that they did. Not only is raising a child as a teenager hard, but there is also a lot to deal with when one chooses adoption as well. As a result of having them on the show, teens are able to see both sides of the spectrum.
