Teen Mom

Please tell me I'm not the only 32 year old woman with this on my DVR. I don't think I've watched MTV since I graduated high school...until I somehow ended up watching the show Teen Mom. I actually saw an episode when this group was originally in 16 & pregnant. It is so hard to stop watching once you've seen one episode. I've cried more watching this show than any time in recent memory. It is heartbreaking. Really heartbreaking. I think it is an important topic to highlight though, and I hope it serves its purpose. Tell me I'm not the only adult watching this darn show? Anybody?

I watched an episode for the first time about a month ago. It was the one where the horrible mother was taking the teenage daughter who gave her baby up for adoption shopping for a prom dress? And yelled at the girl and said horrible things to her in the car? I found it so disturbing I haven't been able to watch another episode. :( I think I would be in tears every week if I started watching regularly.

Melissa was the midwife for one of the girls on 16 and Pregnant. The girl named her kid nevaeh. Heaven backwards. We moved shortly before she delivered.

That was a bad episode Heather. I agree. I was watching the finale on the DVR when I posted this yesterday. The 2 teens who placed their baby for adoption went to see her for her 1st birthday. They seemed to do really well with it, but I was a wreck watching it, lol.

Mike- I don't know that baby. Maybe it was a different cast of girls. Fortunately, I've avoided watching any other group except this one particular group. I couldn't handle any more sadness.
