Leah Shirley - Daughter of Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley - Is Now a Ward of the State!

Things are going from bad to worse for Teen Mom's Amber Portwood.

Gary and Amber had to go to court, and it turns out that neither is a fit parent for daughter Leah.

Amber must wait six months before even filing for custody of her daughter.

Teen motherhood is rough, and hopefully Amber's public struggles will eventually come to a positive resolution. Hopefully, the family's struggles will teach other prospective teen moms that being a young mother is not easy, and that safe sex is much better than teen pregnancy.

What's especially notable about Amber is that she's the teen mom out of the bunch that had multiple pregnancy scares after Leah was born. Let's be grateful that she hasn't gotten pregnant again yet, as she's clearly not able to handle Leah, let alone another child as well.
