16 and pregnant

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, who were the teens featured in 16 and Pregnant an MTV show, are now 21 and have been together almost nine years, and at a recent event where they were asked to speak about their experiences they said women who have unplanned pregnancies should get involved with an adoption agency, even if they aren’t choosing adoption. Agencies can provide resources like counseling and safe-sleep classes, Lowell said.

The couple continues to speak positively about adoption and feel more pregnant teens should consider the option. They are big proponents of Open Adoption.
