Since Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra shared their story of teen pregnancy and adoption on the MTV's 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, they've been known for their inspiring commitment to growing up right. Between their experience placing their first daughter for adoption, and their struggle to cope with problems in their families, Catelynn and Tyler were challenged in every imaginable way. But against all odds, the childhood sweethearts rose above the dysfunction to become responsible adults whose story has inspired many others.
How did two troublemaking kids from the trailer park make it through the storm of family dysfunction, teen pregnancy, and adoption without letting go of each other? What gave them the strength to conquer the chaos of their lives and go on to become people their children could be proud of? And what really happened when the cameras weren't there?
Now, in their debut book, Catelynn and Tyler tell the story in their own words...and they leave nothing out. From the wild behavior that went down before MTV to their experiences learning and teaching about adoption, Catelynn and Tyler lay it all out on the table. Open, honest, raw, and real, Conquering Chaos is an incredible look at two young people who beat the odds and used their victories to give hope to others.
Great book :)
I loved hearing their story, insights, and advice but I found it repetitive at times.
I've really enjoyed reading this book. I'm so glad I bought it. I love Tyler and Catelynn so much. Their relationship isn't perfect; but they truly have an amazing strong, beautiful connection. I've always admired them from the start. What they've done for Carly is absolutely beautiful. I knew that it was extremely hard for them but they did the right thing. They wanted their daughter to have a happy, stable home––something they didn't have when they were just kids themselves. Tyler and Catelynn are absolutely amazing. I love their connection and their love and commitment for each other. They were destined to be together.
This book is exactly what i was expecting from both of them. It was honest and real. It is so inspiring to read. Thank you for sharing your story with the world! Carly will fully understand where you guys were at. If all the parents of adopted child would share their stories, there would be less confused person growing up not understanding why they were adopted and such.
