In 2009, MTV Networks launched a ground-breaking show, 16 & Pregnant, that became a bigger hit than anyone imagined. Bethany Christian Services was contacted by the network because they were hoping to feature an adoption story on this new show. Months later Catelynn and Tyler debuted on the show and as they say, the rest is history.
Bethany Christian Services has been along for the ride as Catelynn and Tyler continued to be featured on Teen Mom or other MTV specials. Bethany’s pregnancy counselor, Dawn Baker, has also been featured on many episodes and has developed a special relationship with Catelynn and Tyler that started before the TV show and will probably last a lifetime.
Bethany is proud to have a partnership with Catelynn and Tyler and together we are working to promote adoption and the benefits of pregnancy counseling. With their help, Bethany hopes to continue to educate expectant moms who may be considering an adoption plan for the baby.
“You have been great on the show so supportive, comforting, trustworthy everything you dream of in a social worker, I’m from Ireland so I watch the show every Wednesday! I know you have so many fans writing to you already but I just wanted to let you know what a great job yous are doing! I love Tyler and Caitlynn I look up to her so much such a strong person she’s great! So lucky to have each other! Great couple! Their love traveled as far as Ireland I just love them!” -
“Hey Dawn, I know you are Catelynn and Tyler’s adoption facilitator from Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant, and I, like so many others have been moved by their story and their willingness to let the whole world in via MTV. I have also been touched by your support and your work.”
