Why Did Sabrina Burkholder Lose Oakley? Plus More Updates on Her Life in 2017!
It was another explosive season of TLC's Return to Amish and Sabrina Burkholder was one member of the cast who seemed to have the most drama in her storyline.
After battling drug addiction, Sabrina landed herself in hot water again with Pennsylvania Children and Youth Services and lost custody of her daughter, Oakley. But the reality star was also expecting baby No. 2 and one of her biggest fears was that the state would also take over custody of her second child, and the season finale left off without giving fans any concrete answers.

Why did Sabrina lose Oakley?
She first lost custody of her daughter in 2015 due to her heroin addiction, and she lost custody of Oakley again last August after a friend allegedly had a heart attack in Sabrina's car and died while Oakley was in the backseat.
Does Sabrina have custody of her kids now?
The 30-year-old is now a mommy-of-two — she has three-year-old daughter Oakley and six-month-old daughter Arianna — but she doesn't have custody of either child. In a recent Facebook post, Sabrina said that this August will mark a year since she's seen Oakley and she also hasn't seen Arianna since CYS took her away one week after Sabrina gave birth.
On the show, fans watched Sabrina desperately try to prevent CYS from taking custody of Arianna because of her history of being unfit to care for her children. Her solution was to sign over guardianship of her baby girl to her parents, who still live in the Mennonite community. But she gave birth four weeks early — before the paperwork could be processed — and the state took over.
Who is Sabrina's baby daddy?
Sabrina's on-again, off-again boyfriend Harry Kreiser III is the father of both of her daughters, and he was first introduced to fans on Breaking Amish. But their relationship was rocky from the start and Harry has his own legal issues. Back in 2012, he was arrested on aggravated assault charges after attacking Sabrina.
Why did Sabrina go to jail?
On April 28, Sabrina was arrested by the Lancaster County police department and charged with Driving an Unregistered Vehicle, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Use/Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Radar Online reported. She was released on May 22 after entering a plea deal.

Is she still friends with Abe and Rebecca Schmucker?
Rebecca and Sabrina were once really good frends, but Rebecca and her husband Abe distanced themselves from Sabrina after she got involved with drugs and started getting in trouble with the law.
But during the season finale of Return to Amish, Sabrina was forced to hang out with her ex-best friend on the group trip to Las Vegas and even though they might not be as close as they once were, they were able to talk things over and make up.
