When Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra found themselves expecting a child while they were still in high school, they made the brave and responsible decision to give their child up for adoption.
The terms of their open adoption stipulated that they got to see the child, Carly, about once a year and get pictures of the now five-year-old.

But on last night’s episode of Teen Mom OG, the young couple feuded with her adoptive parents — Brandon and Teresa Davis — about Carly’s presence on social media.
With a baby on the way (Novalee was born Jan. 1), father-to-be Tyler found himself yearning for Carly and wanted to put up a slideshow of her on his Facebook fan page — but Catelynn immediately stopped him, explaining their relationship with the little girl is too precious to possibly risk.

“I don’t care if the world can’t see her — I get to, my family gets to,” the MTV star, 23, explained to her fiancé. “[If] the only thing we can’t do, is post a damn picture, who cares? As long as we have a relationship with her, I don’t give a sh-t about anything else.”

This isn’t the first time Tyler and Catelynn have clashed with the Davis family. As ‘In Touch Weekly’ reported last month, the two couples were butting heads because Carly’s biological parents had posted her pic online and they were allegedly “not happy with Catelynn and Tyler’s behavior.”

On MTV’s ‘Getting to Know Catelynn’ special, Tyler complained that Brandon and Teresa’s no-media policy “pisses [him] off.”
He lamented, “Did you want to raise her with cameras or not? And if you didn’t, you should never have picked us!”
Hopefully the two couples can set aside their differences, so Carly can have all four amazing people — who care so deeply for her — in her life!
