In the aftermath of her violent attack on her baby daddy, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has lost her right to have her 2-year-old daughter, Leah, in her custody. Child Protective Services intervened and placed the child with her ex-fiance, Gary Shirley, but Amber insists that the measure was taken for the child's safety against paparazzi, not herself.
For the first time, Amber is talking about losing her kid, claiming the CPS thought it was "safer for [Leah] to stay at Gary's because of all the photographers outside [Amber's] house."
Amber reveals that the separation has been hard on both her child and herself. She explains that being away from her girl "is the lowest of the low. Every night she's been saying, 'Where's Mommy?'"
But despite disregarding her rage issues as the reason she lost her child to being with, Amber reveals that she is trying to "put the pieces back together" in her life and "get herself better" for her child.
All nice things to hear. Now, let's see you do them.
