Amber Portwood Laments Loss of Baby Leah

by at . Comments

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood says having 2-year-old daughter Leah taken away by Child Protective Services and placed with her ex-fiance was a low point.

We can see that. The powers that be intervened for other reasons than her routine beatings of Gary Shirley, too. The attention Amber gets was a big concern.

Teen Mom Stars Destroyed!

"Child Protective Services agreed that it was safer for her to stay at Gary's because of all the photographers outside my house," says Amber Portwood.

TEEN MOM BEATDOWN: Gary Shirley's received his share.

Amber's now-infamous physical attacks on her ex have garnered national attention, and sparked a domestic abuse investigation by Anderson, Ind., police.

On medication to cope with anxiety, she calls the forced separation from Leah "is the lowest of the low. Every night she's been saying, 'Where's Mommy?'"

"I feel like everything is spinning out of control, and I'm just trying to put the pieces back together," she tells Us Weekly. "I have to get myself better.

"When I get my baby back, she'll see her mom as happy as can be."

I think that Amber is a poor excuse for a mom. I think she needs to grow up and get some help. As for Gary.. he has the potential to be a good dad. He needs to start thinking of Leah and quit worrying about Amber. He can simple state to Amber that until she gets help ...well you get the rest!

I feel sorry for Gary and Leah. While Amber definitely needs help, I care more about Leah's health and well-being. Amber cannot control herself, and Gary hasn't done anything to protect Leah from the violence. I hope the authorities continue to follow up on this case. Leah needs to be protected from emotional and physical abuse. If Gary wants to stay with Amber, then give the baby to someone else.

Amber needs some serious help, she wasnt ready to have Leah and Gary should be given permanent custody of her, i think Amber should be allowed to visit her as it would be unfair to give her the chance to change, as for the comment about teen mums being a problem, you can't judge all teen mums by Ambers standards and example, i mean look at Maci! She's an incredible mother who adores her son and is so patient and nurturing to him. I've seen adults who struggle to raise their children and fail to do right by them, it a learning curve which unfortunately has no 'second time round'.

This is so sad that this girl wasn't taken from her mother early in the series MTV should be fined for allowing this behavior in front of the child they are just as guilty in regards to child abuse as is Amber. Gary get some parenting classes give your daughter the love & attention she needs. Hugs Hugs are what she needs. You are a very strong & respectable dad stay away from your so called friend that guy is an egomaniac and tries to control you. he did advise you correctly about Amber should of listened. Some people can't change and MTV should have done drug testing on their cast that girl has a nasty habit rehab is the place for her. Keep Leah away from her. May God Bless your daughter.

That girl is nuts Im glad they took Leah from her,I also wish Gary would have turned around and smacked the crap out that nut, then maybe she would stop hitting him! See this is the problem with all these YOUNG girls having babies, their babies them selves and they are not mature enough to handle being moms!!!! Then their put on a show about their life making all kinds of money all it does is show teenage girls hey have a baby its the in thing to do!!! ITs stupid and the only ones that pay are the babies. Makes me sick when I see a teenage mom pregant, I want to slap the shit out of them UNREAL!!!!!!

This nutty chick abused old Gary in front of their child numerous times and the last time I checked, she met the new winner at Walmart, he just came out of some kind of halway house, has no car, no job, no cash, and probably a criminal record. Way to pick em there Amber. Great job! WTF is wrong with this trailer trash ho? Having a child means dropping whatever life you think you have in order to make sure that the child has the best life humanly possible. That baby didn't ask to be born. Tighten up, grow up, and be a woman and a mother you freak.

first off, making Amber to be such a bad person is not going to do anything better. You have to llok at the situation that she is in, there is a lot ofn stress that she goes through and dosnt know how to deal with it. She has leah most if the time from the looks and Gary is sometimes childish when he gets around his friend. I don't think that Amber should have a guy there already around her, because you just can't bring anyone around your kids. She should respect Gary's wishes on him not changing her. They both need to work on improving the situation for Leah.

Yes, Amber needs help but she was NOT a "good mom" by any stretch of the imagination. She would throw Leah in her crib at any given time and let the poor kid cry uncontrollably - a good mom would want to go an soothe and comfort her baby not listen to her scream....she would just lay there in bed. Gary should have the baby now since it all is in Leah's best interest. Amber needs to focus on coping strategies and understand what it take to be a mom...enough with the excuses....Leah is here and needs to be parented correctly!! Poor Leah!

first off i dont believe amber is a horrible person nor do i think she dosent love her daughter. amber wasnt born angry or abusive she was made that way by the people that raised her. yes her baby should be with the father until she is done fixing her own problums but people should be happy that it was caught on camera because now the cycle dosent have to continue. no one gets the right to judge someone else on how well they think they love there child. also most of the time people with opions about how to raise someone elses child are people that dont even have children to begin with!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the beggining (after she had leah) u could tell she was a poor escuse for a mom and a person she mentally abused gary and now has hit him and he didnt hit her back....good man cause where i am if u put urself in a mans situition hey u get treated as such...i believe that gary is the best for leah no matter what i think amber needs yrs of counseling and she needs to go to rehab or atleast drug classes before they even think about giving leah back she is cruel to gary she uses leah as sort of a tool when she gets mad she threatens gary with taking poor leah away from him and that immature
