Amber Portwood Finally Reunites With Baby Son ... Under Professional Supervision. Will She Ever Regain Custody?

by at .  Updated at .

Amber Portwood came face-to-face with her 14-month old son on Thursday, July 18.

She also came face-to-face with her brand new reality.

The troubled Teen Mom OG cast member was arrested for felony domestic violence back on July 5 and, shortly thereafter, was barred from going near the victim of her alleged assault, boyfriend Andrew Glennon, or the couple's child, baby James.

As such, she hadn't see her son for nearly two weeks after being taken into custody.

This finally changed on the aforementioned date -- but Portwood was unable to spend actual alone time with James.

It's unclear when she'll even be able to do so again.

Scroll down for the latest in her custody battle with Glennon and to learn how the first of her scheduled supervised visits went last week...

1. Her New Reality

Her New Reality
As we said up top, Portwood was charged with THREE felonies after she allegedly attacked Glennon in early July - while he was holding their young son in his arms. The criminal case is still ongoing, but it seems clear that this was a scary situation all around.

2. Why? What Happened?

Why? What Happened?
According to various reports, Amber got really mad at Andrew because the family missed a July 4 fireworks show. (Yes ... we're serious.) The Teen Mom OG mainstay then responded by hucking a shoe at him, striking Glennon in the neck.

3. But That Wasn't All

But That Wasn't All
Far from it, in fact. This situation became more dangerous than anyone could've imagined - it could've cost her son dearly, and it may cost Amber dearly in a different sense.

4. Oh, God, What Else?

Oh, God, What Else?
Glennon told police that he ran and locked himself - along with James - inside of a bathroom. This is when Amber allegedly grabbed a machete and used it to try and break through the door. A machete.

5. Andrew Claims That Amber Threatened Suicide

Andrew Claims That Amber Threatened Suicide
Glennon claims he feared for Portwood's life during this episode. He even says she downed a number of pills in front of him, in order to do herself in, only to eventually throw them back up.

6. As a Result of All This?

As a Result of All This?
A no-contact order was issued against Amber to protect her Andrew and their son after the MTV personality's domestic violence arrest. At a July 10 hearing, the judge did not say when it would be lifted.
