Carly Davis and Novalee Baltierra (Daughters with Tyler)



Catelynn Lowell is a junior in high school, living in Algonac, Michigan. She and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra, discover she is pregnant. Neither of them feel that their living conditions are suitable for a new child, so they decide to look into adoption, going against their parents' wishes. They settle on a couple, Brandon and Teresa, and bond with them quickly. In May 2009, Lowell gives birth to a baby girl, who is named Carolynn Elizabeth (Carly for short) by her adoptive parents. Although not initially wanting to meet the baby, Baltierra and Lowell decide that they would like to see Carly before her adoptive parents do. After meeting their daughter, Brandon and Teresa promise to keep in touch with Baltierra and Lowell throughout the years of Carly's life. When it is time to sign the adoption papers, Lowell's mother refuses, forcing the official handover to take place off hospital grounds. Baltierra and Lowell say that the adoption was the hardest thing they had ever had to do, but the result has brought them closer together, and they know they made the right decision for Carly.
