We've seen Kailyn Lowry and her mother's relationship progress since the moment she premiered on 16 & Pregnant, to the many installments of Teen Mom 2.
Most recently, Suzi has been largely absent from Kailyn's life because of her substance abuse issues, and Kailyn has been doing just fine. She's even vowed to give her kids the parents she's never had. So when Suzi swore to Kailyn that she would move in with her to help with the kids after Lincoln was born, Kailyn was rightfully weary of the promise.
And the moment Kailyn went into labor with her second baby, Suzi began frantically calling and texting Kailyn, proving that she had not yet sobered up. We really were hoping for a change.
And as it turns out, Suzi may have cleaned up her act.
According to an insider close to Kailyn, Suzi and her daughter "have been talking on the phone [and] Kailyn has forgiven her mother."
However, Kailyn has been set some major ground rules. Suzi hasn't met baby Lincoln yet, and won't until she has officially cleaned up.
This is definitely wonderful news. We can see how much Kailyn wants her mom to get better and be a grandmother to her children, but it's even better that she has very realistic boundaries for her. She won't, and should not be, around the babies until she's clean.
It's definitely not easy handle a parent with substance abuse, but Kailyn is doing everything she can. And we're wishing them the best!
Do you think Kailyn should have forgiven her mother?
