Even though they tried to make the right decision for their daughter at the time, it was heartbreaking to see Catelynn and Tyler place Carly for adoption when she was born. And now, it sounds like it's still something that affects the couple every day -- especially Cate. In fact, according to Tyler, Catelynn still feels guilty about Carly's adoption to this day. 


During a group trip to Puerto Rico with Maci, Amber, and their guys on this week's episode of Teen Mom OG, Cate and Maci ended up on the topic of postpartum depression, something they've both battled after the birth of their children. But for Cate, it seems like it's different, because it's also muddled with emotions about the life she could have had if Carly and Nova were both under her roof.

As The Hollywood Gossip points out, that was when Tyler mentioned how difficult it's all been for Cate, and that she's felt really guilty for not raising Carly herself, especially after seeing how possible it could have been now that she knows what being a mom is really like with Nova.

Obviously, it's incredibly difficult to understand what Cate's going through unless you've been in her position, but she and Tyler were so brave in making such a tough decision in the best interest of their baby when they had her at such a young age. And from everything we've seen of Carly on the show, it seems like she lives a wonderful life with her parents, Brandon and Teresa, and she just has that much more love from her bio parents, too. 

In fact, when you think about it that way, it actually makes Carly seem pretty lucky! Cate has no reason to feel guilty for the way things played out -- actually, she should feel pretty proud of herself. 

Hopefully, Catelynn won't feel this way forever. After everything she's been through, she deserves nothing but happiness.
