Port Huron, Michigan
Catelynn Lowell (born March 12th, 1992) of Michigan, and boyfriend, Tyler Baltierra, made the heartbreaking decision of placing their baby, Carolyn (Carly) Elizabeth (born May 18th, 2009), for adoption, much to the dismay of their parents. Carly’s adoptive parents, Brandon and Theresa, were chosen from a portfolio Catelynn and Tyler received from the adoption counselor. Catelynn’s mother, April Baltierra, never fully got over her daughter placing their grandchild for adoption, which causes problems in their relationship. April is married to Tyler’s father, Butch. Catelynn and Tyler chose an open adoption and are able to see Carly on occasion. Catelynn and Tyler graduated from High School in June of 2011.
