After Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood lost custody of her son James, the moms from the Teen Mom franchise showed up to offer their support.

As Monsters and Critics reported earlier this week, a judge awarded sole custody of Amber’s 4-year-old son James to her ex, Andrew Glennon.

The news came as a shock to those who have watched Amber do the work in recent years to get herself sober, attend court-ordered therapy for her mental issues, and pass all her drug tests.

However, a large group of Teen Mom OG fans still feel that the damage Amber did years ago was too much to return from and felt the judge’s decision was fair.

Amber and Andrew each released statements to E! News. While Amber focused on mentioning how she’s “worked so hard to better” herself and improve her relationships with her children (she also shares 13-year-old daughter Leah with ex Gary Shirley), Andrew simply stated, “We endured the nightmare. Now we get to live the dream.”

Amber took to Instagram this week, where she shared the same heartfelt message, this time directed at her 1.7 million followers.
