Did Catelynn Lowell’s issues with her oldest daughter’s adoptive parents contribute to her rehab stint for depression? On this week’s Teen Mom OG, she breaks down in tears after learning she may not be able to see her daughter for the first time in two years.
Lowell and her husband Tyler Baltierra explained how the date Brandon and Teresa Davis suggested for a visit conflicts with a family vacation. Lowell and Baltierra feared if they try to change the date, they would cancel the visit, as Teresa and Brandon declined their yearly visits the year before.
“I try not to make it difficult, but then they always seem like things are difficult,” Lowell said. “I’ve been willing and trying and offering and I get ignored for months.”
Their adoption counselor explained how it is hard on the Davis family since Carly is getting older and asking more questions.
“I feel like we get the brunt of it because they’re scared or she’s asking questions,” Lowell cried. “You knew that was going to happen. Don’t punish us for it. I feel like I get punished because my kid asks questions about me.”
Baltierra added, “I don’t think as a parent we should ever allow our fears to dictate what’s right for our children. I really think the question should be, ‘Do you think having this one-year visit is good for her?’ As her parent, which I gave you the right to be, you have to decide if that is right for her or not. If you don’t think it’s right for her then I will step aside.”
He added how he doesn’t mind if he has a relationship with her adoptive parents.
Fortunately for the couple, Brandon and Teresa were able to reschedule.
“Ryan still hasn’t responded to my text about taking a drug test so I’m in a tough spot because I don’t feel comfortable letting Bentley visit him or his family until he does,” she explained.
Edwards’ family expressed their frustration, as his mom said, “We miss him. Don’t hold it against us. We could see Bentley without Ryan being here. I don’t have a problem with that. If Ryan is doing anything in his house and if I see one sign of anything he’s not going to be here. She should know Bentley is going to be safe here.”
Despite Bentley wanting to see his dad and grandparents, Bookout refused to give in.
“Ryan hasn’t done what he’s supposed to do,” she said. “Pass some test and we’ll be in the clear, but he never responded to me. We know it’s hurting him. My job is to keep him safe first and then make him happy second.”
At the end of the episode, Edwards explained that he took a hair follicle test to see if he could pass it since heroin stays in your system from 90 to 120 days.
“He’s been asking me to come visit him in Vegas I think I’m going to go,” she said. “Me going there is not us getting back together. It’s about seeing the progress he’s making since he’s been out there.”
Portwood explained how the split has affected her relationship with her daughter Leah.
“I haven’t seen Leah in I don’t know how f**king long because I’m so afraid of her to see me,” she said. “I have to be in a good state in order to be around her.”
Her baby daddy Gary Shirley expressed his frustration over having to invite Portwood to see her daughter instead of her asking.
His wife Kristina added, “Summer break is almost over and she saw Amber a total of two times. I wish she were more involved. Leah needs her real mom.”
When a producer told Portwood that she seemed in better spirits, she responded, “I took my medicine. I was going through things because I didn’t have my head meds. You literally are a whole different person without them.”
“What if she’s bad again though?” Sophia asked her mom.
Abraham then explained to her father’s girlfriend, “Sophia doesn’t want to go on a trip with my mom. She left a really bad impression with Sophia in Key West. My daughter doesn’t want to hang out with her own grandma anymore.”
When Abraham and Sophia asked Danielsen about the family vacation, she accepted their invitation.
