Not only does she look fabulous, in the pictures she is posing in a graduation cap and gown, holding a degree from Miller Motte Technical College in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

She received her Medical Assistant’s degree!!

Jenelle’s journey has not been easy. Her relationship with her mother, Barbara, is strained and plagued with drama. Earlier this month, reports claimed that Jenelle is still battling her mother for custody of Jenelle’s oldest son Jace.

And her relationship with her baby daddy Nathan Griffith has been chock full of legal issues.  In May, Jenelle turned herself into police after assaulting Nathan at his Myrtle Beach home.

But despite the drama, her mother and Nathan were there to celebrate her graduation.

"Thanks to my family for being here as my biggest support system and able to push me through it!!!” she captioned a photo with Nathan, their son Kaiser, and Evan’s 6-year-old son Jace.

She added, “And of course thanks to my mother for always motivating me to be independent and to chase my goals no matter what obstacles may come up.”

Even little Jace had a graduation recently.  He completed kindergarten!

Is this a comeback and a new start for Jenelle?  We hope so!!
