‘Teen Mom’ Stars Talk Pregnancy and Adoption


‘Teen Mom’ Reality TV stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra made a difficult, emotional decision to place their child for adoption four years ago. Catelynn and Tyler are now engaged to be married and agreed to make the difficult decision to place their child for adoption because neither felt ready four years ago to be full time parents. They explored their options, made an adoption plan and chose a family to adopt their little girl. It was important to both of them that they have ongoing contact with their child so they chose parents who were willing to create an open adoption.  Both are now strong advocates of open adoption and recently spoke at an event at Fresno State. To learn more about their story and hear directly from Catelynn and Tyler . . . check out the link below.

A Birth Father’s Tale



It is so rare that we honestly hear from birth fathers about their experience of placing a child for adoption…I have been privileged to meet many wonderful men through the years who have come forward to plan for their child’s future by making an adoption plan. But sadly, this is not always the case and many fathers are not involved in the adoption planning for their child. Historically, many birth fathers were shut out of the process or felt they had no choice or say in the adoption planning of their child…It was refreshing to find this YouTube video of Andrew Ward, a writer and birth father, speaking about his life long journey of making sense of the adoption of his infant son…He speaks candidly and clearly dispels the myth about birth fathers not caring about their child placed for adoption…click the link below to hear Andrew’s story
