We all know that adoption is never easy. It’s not a decision made lightly by anyone involved. If you watch Teen Mom you’ll know that placing a child up for adoption is hard. Probably the hardest decision parents could ever make. And also one of the most unselfish.
It might sound silly to reference Teen Mom, but the show has really made the topic of adoption mainstream. It explores adoption from the point of view as birth parents and how it has effected Tyler and Catelynn Baltierra over the years.
Like many birth parents, Tyler and Catelynn are fortunate to have a relationship with the people who adopted their daughter. They’re able to be updated with how she’s growing and know that they made the right decision for her.
Unfortunately for some, adoption is viewed as the ‘easy way out’ or that the birth mother is simply ‘giving away’ her child.
Hannah Mongie had to make a tough decision when it came time to place her son up for adoption. Mongie found a loving family to adopt her son and they have a very open relationship when it comes to the adoption.
