  1. Congrats on the book hun πŸ™‚
    I pre-ordered, received and already have read it. You did an AMAZING job on the book.

    I just wanted to say, I’ve dated 2 guys that were adopted. One absolutely HATED his adoptive parents & His birth parents. Basically for no reason, and resented the fact he was adopted.

    The other guy, My fiance. Was adopted as infant, closed adoption and is completely grateful for his Adoptive, well as he calls them His ONLY parents. I’ve seen both ends of the spectrum so I was able to relate to your book. But I know my fiance’ has had So many experiences and chances to do things he never would have been able to if he hadn’t been given up.

    You really did do the best thing whether you realize it or not and you still have her in your life πŸ™‚ I doubt I could ever be that strong to do what you did. But you truly are an amazing person. Callie is lucky to have you in her life, she’s lucky to have such an amazing, selfless Mother. πŸ™‚ <3

  2. i got your book on friday and couldnt put it down i finished it today and loved it. Congrats Ashley your future is looking bright wish you and callie the best πŸ™‚

  3. This book was awful. There was not really anything in the book that wasn’t in the blog or her show. All honesty!

  4. This book was the worst $10 I ever spent. It was no different than the show and the blog. I would rather have bought something crappy from Starbucks. Ebay, here I come!

  5. Ashley,

    I just received your book in the mail today and have been reading it ever since it came. I just wanted to let you know that I think you did an amazing job!

    I wish you and Callie nothing but the best!

  6. I think I am going to donate my book to the local Good Will. Maybe homeless people will find it more interesting. I mean hey, they have nothing to bitch about, right?
    If I wanted to read a sob story, I would have read Lord of the Flies.

  7. You’re disgusting. Your book sucks. Callie has every right to be anywhere but with you. You’re a terrible “mother,” writer, and most of all, a terrible person. I hope your book fails as miserably as your parenting skills did.

  8. Ashley,
    First off I wanted to tell you that I just bought your book last Thursday and It took me 2 days to read it. I fell in love and could not put it down. What I wanted to tell you is that I think you are incredibly brave and selfless. Your decision to put your daughter up for adoption must have been so hard and impossible to come to terms with. But, you somehow manage and still go on with your life. I read an article today from that Heather Clouse Teen Mom Talk talking about how since your with Justin [the father of your child] your probably going to try and get custody back of your daughter. And I think it is so rude and so attacking to write such horrible things. No one but you knows what you have been through and how hard it is to live and go on with your life since you made that deicison.
    I LOVED your book and I am thinking of reading it again. Your an amazing photographer btw. I loved the pictures you took of yourself. You are such a beautiful person and you and your daughter are so lucky to have each other given the decision you made. Stay strong and be the person you wanna be and need to be for Callie. I look forward to seeing your future blog entries πŸ™‚

  9. Hi, I have not read your book yet but I know from first hand how hard it is to give up a baby for adoption. You did the right thing for you and your baby.

  10. Are you people kidding me? Maybe the people you should be bashing are some of the mothers who aren’t capable of caring for their children but keep them anyway. You hear about these people who can’t handle or care for their children properly and yet they don’t make the selfless choice to give their baby to a better home with more capable stable parents. There are psycho moms out there that snap and kill their children… Go hate on them instead. Don’t sit here and criticize someone for making a selfless choice. Even if at times she does regret it and wish for her back… It’s a confusing decision and to be expected to feel that way.
    -Also, how about these girls who are using abortion as a form of birth control over and over again? Ashley could have chosen to terminate her pregnancy but instead she chose to continue on and give her child a life, family and home.

    I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND how people can criticize, judge, harass and verbally abuse those selfless people who chose to give their children life and place them up for adoption. I am Constantly seeing Ashley, Catelynn and Tyler receiving these awful hateful comments on twitter, Facebook and blogs. I’ll never understand. People are so messed up. Glad I’m not a miserable person who spends my time and energy hating other people.

  11. I think you are very kind, smart, beautiful, and important. You continue to believe in love and do what is best for you! Your love for your daughter is a bond that will never be broken. Get your education and develop your passion for life! It will pay dividends! You deserve all the goodness that is coming to you! Go with your gut! Your heart is golden! I am so happy for you and know u will be successful in what ever you do! Keep your head up and be the good person you are! Your whole beautiful life is ahead of you, keep the love in your heart and believe it is all there for you to enjoy! Be strong and true to yourself….. Much love! ~ Traci

  12. Hii Ashley

    You book is amazing- i read it in 4 hours. your story is inspiring, you are sooo strong and selfless and callie is beautiful xx

  13. I just watched your episode and it was the funniest one so far. It must be nice to do an open adoption and let other people be financially responsible. After watching that episode I would never waste money on your book. I do think that your parents are irresponsible for even entertaining a family member adoption. The funny thing is, this baby will grow up and watch your video and realize how selfish and worthless you are. I feel sorry for the kid, it’s not her fault but she has to live that messed up life.

  14. I’ll right away clutch your rss as I can’t in finding your e-mail subscription link or newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Please allow me know so that I could subscribe. Thanks.
