Teen Mom Plans to Adopt Brother
The 20-year-old star of “Teen Mom”, Catelynn Lowell is planning to adopt her 6-year-old brother in the event that their mother relapses into alcoholism.
Lowell’s mother April Baltierra has suffered from the disease throughout the teen mom’s childhood.
“I would put pillows underneath her [head] while she was passed out on the table,” Lowell recalled. “I pretty much saw my mom drunk almost every day. I had to grow up really fast.”
While Baltierra has been reportedly sober since September 2011, Lowell is prepared to intervene if Baltierra goes back on the decline.
“If my mom derails again, I will step in and adopt my brother,” Lowell said.
Lowell is currently engaged to Tyler Baltierra, the father of the child that the couple gave up for adoption back in 2009.
