Adam Lind, a former Teen Mom 2 star, has given up parental rights of his youngest daughter Paislee, whom he welcomed with his ex-girlfriend Taylor Halbur for four years.
Halbur shared a photo of her husband and Paislee's adopted father, Joe Leonard, on Instagram, and wrote about the day Paislee became a Leonard.
Halburs' Instagram account is private, but a fan took a photo of her post and posted it on Reddit.
4 years ago we walked into a courtroom. 4 years ago the paperwork was signed. 4 years ago Paislee officially became a citizen of the United States, and took on the last name Leonard, Halbur wrote on September 14.There were tears, smiles, hugs, and all kinds of emotions, including joy and relief. 4 years ago today, our entire world changed for the better.
Halbur and Leonard have been married since 2018.
Halbur and Lenoard split in 2014, almost a year after Paislee was born.
Paislee Is 9 Years Old
Halbur celebrated Paislees' 9th birthday two weeks earlier.
Today is your ninth birthday, my little baby. She wrote that it's as if it was only yesterday that I held you in my arms for the first time. We're all so grateful. Watching you grow into the tiny lady you are becoming has brought us great pleasure.
She said you are wonderful, daring, generous, funny, and full of life. Keep shining bright baby girl!
Paislee was welcomed together by Halbur and Lind in 2013, but five years later Lind signed his release.
Aubree Lind-DeBoer, who he welcomed with his ex-girlfriend, Chelsea Houska, is still his parental rights.
Cole DeBoer Wants to Adopt Aubree
Chelsea DeBoer (@chelseahouska) has shared a post.
Cole DeBoer, Houskas' husband, has expressed an interest in adopting Aubree, like Leonard.
In 2019, DeBoer made the declaration during a Teen Mom 2 episode.
After the adoption of Paislees, the conversation erupted.
Last night off-camera, I talked with Aubree about what's going on with Paislee, and if shed want the same thing for herself, Houska told MTV cameras.
Aubree was unsure about the situation.
She wanted to know if Paislee was still her sister, she explained. I think it kind of enraged her, because to her it's confusing.
DeBoer said if she asked me to, I would do it in a heartbeat. I do not want to jeopardize her feelings.
Randy Houskas, the son of the Houskas, has encouraged his daughter to keep the conversation open.
He said, I think you can't forego it. You just have to allow her to make the decision. Just keep letting her ask questions. When she's younger she'll always think [Lind is] therehes coming back. But as she gets older, she'll go, Eh you know what? Shell know.
Aubree Lind-DeBoer became her half-siblings in 2018 after adopting her stepdad's last name.
According to a source, she understood she has a different father, but she felt left out as the only one with a different last name.
Houska and DeBoer have three children: Watson, 5-year-old Layne, and 1-year-old Walker June.
Teen Mom: The Next Chapter is available on MTV every Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. ET.
