Now that baby Leah was been taken away from Amber to be with father Gary Shirley, Amber is only allowed supervised visits — but shouldn’t an exception be made for the holidays?
Reports yesterday stated that Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was in a state of distress when she learned she was unable to see her daughter Leah, who has now been classified as CHINS — Child in Need of Service. This means Amber can only see Leah, now with father Gary Shirley, if a supervisor is present — but shouldn’t an exception be made for the holidays?
While we understand that Amber should not be left alone with Leah in this situation, shouldn’t she be allowed a small period of time while Gary is present to be with Leah? Or if Gary doesn’t feel comfortable, with someone he selects to supervise?
The state obviously has good reason for their decision to remove Leah, but to keep Amber away from her daughter on Thanksgiving seems a bit cruel.
