Kailyn Lowry's Heartbreaking Confession About Isaac is a Wake-Up Call

Kailyn LowryKailyn Lowry has been missing something very important in her life recently, but she finally got it back when she was reunited with her 4-year-old son Isaac after a six-week separation. Yup, Isaac was away from his mama for an entire month and a half, and homegirl couldn't have been happier to have him back.

The Teen Mom 2 star posted this mother-son selfie on Instagram, along with a heartbreaking confession and warning about the potential long-term consequences of teen sex.

She wrote:

After 6 long weeks of FaceTiming nearly every day I finally got my baby back! Nobody ever warned me of the struggles I would face when I decided to have sex, let alone become pregnant. Sharing time between parents cannot be easy for a child and I know first hand how hard it is on myself and my family. All I can hope now is that other young couples (& hopefully my own kids) will learn from my decisions by doing better for themselves.

Aggh! Break our hearts already! It's obvious Kail loves Isaac very much, and wouldn't rather be without him, but even in the best co-parenting situations, it's rough.

Kailyn has overcome some pretty tough struggles in her life -- abusive relationships, an abortion, a mom with addiction issues, an absent dad, teen pregnancy -- but this is a good reminder that just because you get your life together doesn't mean your past won't haunt you in very real ways. Kail has such a gorgeous family now with husband Javi Maroquin, baby Lincoln, and of course Isaac, but she will always have to share Isaac with his dad Jo Rivera.

Isaac is a very blessed little boy to have two parents who love him very much, and he certainly wouldn't be better off if Kail and Jo were still together, but that doesn't take away from the suck factor of not having your mom and dad be together.

After everything she's been through, it's awesome that Kail can recognize her past mistakes, and share what it's like to live with the consequences. Yes, she has a beautiful little boy, but she also has to give him up for weeks at a time so he can spend time with his dad too.

Do you think teen girls might think twice about having unprotected sex after reading Kailyn's post?

That's funny because she just posted 48 hours ago that she had him for his baptism

I hope it does. I share a 9 year old daughter with her father and have done so since she was 2. He lives on the west coast and I live on the east. She spends summer with him but she struggles alot emotionally because of the distance. I was 18 when I got pregnant with her and I wouldn't change that now but I hope young people learn to recognize that they should wait. Once you have a baby, every single decision you make affects another life. Take birth control, wear condoms; just be smart.

Seems to me that most want the baby so they can "keep" the baby daddy. It's just way to easy to prevent pregancy now days.

No... It won't make things diffferent... know why? b.c we ALL think "it won't happen to ME"

Why is it only ever about the girl? How about PEOPLE just think twice about unprotected sex, period.

She annoys the crud out of me. Just because you couldn't make it work with your baby daddy, doesn't mean other people can't. I got pregnant at 15, and my daughter's father and I have been together for 8 years, married for 5. Get over yourself Kailyn.

It wouldn't change anything for me since my daughter will never spend six weeks away from me with her dad unless she's a teenager and chooses to.

They never learn.. my sister is 19 with 3 kids.. living off welfare and only knows who one of the dad's is and unfortunately most of our family has disowned her bc if u don't give her something she asks for she throws a tantrum and cusses n screams.. she never got the chance to grow up per her own decisions. .she's had 4 pregnancys and the first sadly was a stillborn (rip).. thought she would have learned from it but she got worse...

No, most of us do not get pregnant to "keep the baby daddy". I got pregnant first off because I was refused birth control, second because I was stupid, and third because I trusted him. When he left, I didn't fight it. I didn't care because I knew that this little boy would always have me. Now he's 2 1/2 and that still hasn't changed. His dad doesn't care, but I will not give up. Second, we do learn. At least most of us. I'm 18 now, only one kid, GED and heading to college. I'm keeping it at one child until I get into a career, not just a job. I also learned that how I got pregnant is considered rape regardless of it I loved him. I said no, he didn't listen. I said stop, he didn't. But I still refuse to press charges. Because I grew up in a home where it was the women's fault. Simple as that. I learned you can't always trust people, no matter how much you want to. And that's a lesson I've followed ever since.

I hope it helps. But also remember it's not just the teen girl's this should help too, what about the boys? Fathers are no less a parent than mothers. On the other hand I could not ask for anything to go any different with my pregnancies with the exception that my first born had a lot of genetic birth defects. But I even thought I was too young to be a mother in her 20's. I do love being young enough to keep up with my kids though and I love them more than anything in the world, even life itself. :) good luck Kail, you're an amazing mama with a beautiful family!
