'Teen Mom' Farrah Abraham Gives Up Baby Sophia & Moves To Florida! Did She Do The Right Thing?

On the Sept. 13 episode of ‘Teen Mom,’ Farrah contemplates whether or not to leave Sophia in Iowa with her mom Debra while she attends school in Florida. Well obviously, she made her decision!

So it turns out Teen Mom Farrah Abraham DID decide to leave 2-year-old Sophia in Iowa with her parents and jet off to Fort Lauderdale, Fl. ALONE to start a new life and ‘better herself’ for her daughter. But did she make the right choice? Farrah thinks YES!

Life & Style magazine reveals that Farrah, 20, has decided to turn Sophia over to the care of her mom, Debra Danielson, while she moves 1,600 miles away to attend school at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.

“Sophia is the No. 1 thing in my life,” Farrah says, defending her decision. “I’m just trying to be the best parent that I can. I take care of my responsibilities. I’m happy that I took the chance to move. I would never regret it.”

Although Farrah has been fighting with her parents, Debra and Michael, to take Sophia with her, it turns out the 20-year-old has realized that her family can offer Sophia a better and more stable life in Iowa while she gets her bachelor’s degree and works at saving money for their future.

“My mom is the best grandma,” Farrah says of Debra, who is now Sophia’s primary caregiver. “I want her to be there for Sophia when I need to take care of my responsibilites, my education, and earning an income for both of us.”

But making money isn’t all Farrah’s concerned about. The single mom, who lost Sophia’s dad Derek Underwood in a car accident in Dec. 2008, missed out on her teen years and is eager to live a little while on her own.

“I’ve been trying to grow personally and emotionally,” Farrah admits. “I’m very much taking time to get back to myself and enjoy my freedom.” Hmm, sounds a bit harsh right? It’s her baby we’re talking about here!

But Farrah insists she visits with Sophia whenever she can, even though it’s difficult to say goodbye. “It would be hard for any mother,” Farrah tells Life & Style. “When I do leave Sophia I call and I call. I text, I check in and I e-mail. I don’t want her to ever think Mommy’s not ever coming back.” But is it enough?

“I’m very close to her,” she adds. “She tells me she misses me and loves me. I’m tugged in many different ways daily — but I don’t want to limit myself for Sophia.”

Teen Mom fans, what do you think about Farrah’s decision to leave Sophia behind while she lives her life in Florida. Did she do the right thing? Weigh in!

Not being funny, but I think Farrah is just a pretty terrible mother: like Octomom. Her parents were always looking out for her and she called it abuse. Of course Sophia’s better off with Debra and Michael(?)!

Why would anyone want to buy a loose toy vagina to have sex with?

Wasn’t she the one who fit 8 fingers up in her tired old hallway of a snatch?

NO. That is such a ridiculously vast distance…..If she thinks she has issues with HER Mom, just imagine the issues her DAUGHTER will have with HER in the future! I could NEVER move away for my kids! You have to compromise when you have children!

I was a teen mom – a single mom at that. Pregnant at 17 and gave birth at 18. I do NOT support her decision at all. I completely understand wanting to better her future for the sake of her daughter, but she should’ve thought about that before deciding on having the baby period. I am now 25 and my daughter is 7, and I can honestly say I’m not exactly where I want to be in life – BUT I can at least say with the little I had, I worked hard as I watched my friends go off to college, graduate with bachelors, and I NEVER left my daughters side and THAT is enough for me and I know its more than enough for my daughter. Even if I don’t have a degree, I am able to make enough to keep a roof over our heads, put food on the table, keep us warm and clothed and am able to teach my daughter to make smarter decisions than I did for the sake of HER future. A mother’s future is her kids – she needs to realize that. And it is selfish as hell to say she needs “me time” and freedom. I wanted that too – but only a young and ignorant mind would actually follow that. She’s blessed enough to even have parents who are willing to raise her child as stubborn as she is to them, and not realizing THAT is a true parents sacrifice…DOING WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO because we love our children “A child needs your presence more than your presents.”

I am also a teen mom I’m 18 and my baby is 1jear and 4months old, if I. Could chose, I would love the help of my family, taking care of a baby 24/7 is not a joke and taking up school and a job is a bigger responsabillaty its not like she letf her for good she just needs time, and sometimes you get to that point that you need a litle space, I know its her own folt for getting pregnant, but God whanted her to have a child and she just whant a bit of “me time” and with a baby you don’t get that, any body with a child knows that feeling, that feeling of just need some time, atleast she leaves the baby with someone she can trust! That says good mother to me!.

Going 1,600 miles away for college isn’t “me time”. “Me time” is going away for a weekend and leaving your child with family, or going to a spa for the day and hiring a trusted babysitter. Going to college isn’t a bad thing, but find a closer one if you’re going to leave your baby with someone else.

Well, she must have either moved back to the area or is visiting. I live in Omaha Nebraska and I just saw her and Sophia at the park today. Sophia is darling, but to be honest, was sort of dressed like a rag-muffin and her hair wasn’t combed at all. Funny enough, Farrah was decked out in a cute outfit.
