Saying goodbye is never easier.
During tonight’s Teen Mom OG season finale, Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell met their eldest daughter Carly, whom they placed for adoption when they were just teenagers.
Although no cameras were rolling during the family reunion – planned with the help of the couple’s adoption advisor – viewers could still catch a glimpse of how special the trip was.
“Everything went smoothly,” Tyler shared with his wife. “Nova is now older, so they can really play. They just clicked.”
Catelynn added, “If you see all your biological children together – play and manners and walk the same – it’s just different.”
During their second visit, Carly’s biological parents surprised her with a personal scrapbook full of memories. They also enjoyed a visit to the local zoo.
But as Tyler and Catelynn have experienced before, all special visits must be ended. Cameras rolled when Tyler caught Carly when she was comforted by her adoptive parents after the reunion.
“I want to comfort her,” tears Tyler. “Every time we see her, she is a completely different child. Do we have a few beautiful girls? They are beautiful.”
He continued: “It will never be easy to see everyone and say hello and hang out and then say goodbye, but everyone involved would swap the few days of sadness to have the visits – to have that bond.”
“I would say that birth parents are some of the strongest people in the world,” Catelynn added. We can’t help but agree.
Teen Mom OG will be broadcast on Monday evening at 9 p.m. on MTV. And mark your calendars for a brand new Teen Mom 2 season, kick off on September 10.
