About the Author

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra first rose to fame on the MTV reality programs 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, which documented Catelynn's pregnancy and the couple's decision to place their first child for adoption. Lauded from the start for their maturity and sense of responsibility, Catelynn and Tyler have gone on to inspire many others who share their backgrounds and experiences through public speaking and television appearances. Their debut book, Conquering Chaos, tells the real story of their rise from dysfunctional childhoods to healthy, meaningful lives.

I loved Catelynn and Tyler's very real story of adoption on MTV. It wasn't sugar coated, you saw the pain. the hardship, and the strength it took to place their baby for adoption. This book covers their earlier years and a little of the adoption journey.

Tyler definitely doesn't hold any punches and tells things like it is. Their childhood was not all sunshine and roses and their story could have turned out very differently. The pregnancy seems to have been the wake up call they both needed to get their lives on a different path and break the cycle of addiction, teen parenting and dysfunction in their families.

With the support of only one parent each and the other set actively fighting against them, they managed to make it through a very difficult decision and seem to have gone on to help others. They give speeches about their struggles and their time on MTV has helped bring new awareness to adoption, the adoption process and how it is not like it was years ago. It also helps to dispel a lot of the myths surrounding adoption and the rosy or sometimes downright nightmarish way adoption can often be portrayed in film and on tv.

I liked this book but I wish it had been more. While it gives a good insight and perspective into the lives of birth parents and reasons why they made the decision they did it didn't give me enough about what has gone on since. Yes they finished high school but that's about all I know. I wish it had given me more on how they have pulled themselves out of the situations they were in. Did they go to college? I know they aren't married yet are having an other baby, how long has it been since they placed their daughter for adoption?

I also found the book to be a bit repetitive in places.

I have been a huge fan of Catelynn and Tyler since they were on Teen Mom. They are a great couple who have gotten through so much - and this was even more evident after reading Conquering Chaos. They have certainly started from the bottom and have made it to the top. They are such a great couple who I am even prouder to support now.
Whether you have watched Teen Mom from the beginning or not, I recommend reading Conquering Chaos to get an inside gimpse to both Catelynn and Tyler's life before and after they became a couple.

I would just like to say how proud I am of these two kids. You are an inspiration to me. I was one of the lucky ones and grew up with loving parents and two sisters. They are all in Heaven now, but the lessons I learned from them are deep in my heart. I admire both of you for giving Carly and her adopted parents such a gift. I know it wasn't easy. Congratulations on your new baby. I pray for you and God bless you. I recommend this book for everyone.

This was such a touching and inspirational book. It told their story from the beginning and included both the good and the bad they experienced. In would recommend this book to any parent, any teen who is pregnant, both parents and adoptive parents, and those who have been adopted or are considering the adoption process.

I always enjoyed Catelynn and Tyler on the show Teen Mom. They have really being something of themselves when they had so many things going against them. You don't learn anything is this book that you didn't know before if you saw Teen Mom except maybe more about their teenage years before they had Carley. Just want to commend them for growing up into responsible adults and wish them the best of luck in the future!

This couple is so strong. I loved learning more about them, other than just what is shown on Teen Mom.
They are genuine, and so sweet. I was surprised by how honest they were; however, if you watch the show at all - you know this is a staple for them.
