TYLER Baltierra shared a devastating poem to his daughter Carly on her 13th birthday.
The Teen Mom OG star and his wife Catelynn Lowell welcomed Carly when they were teenagers and placed her for adoption as a baby.
Tyler and Catelynn – who have three more daughters – have remained in close contact with Carly ever since.
On the teen's 13th birthday, Tyler penned a heartbreaking poem to pay tribute to his first child.
He shared a photo of him and Catelynn holding Carly when she was a newborn on Instagram and captioned it: "Happy 13th Birthday Carly! I don’t really have the words to describe how I feel today… so I figured I’d share a poem that I wrote for her instead."
The poem read: "I never wanted to let you go, I hope you understand
I wanted to hold you in my arms forever, Like your fingers around my pinky, In the palm of your little hand.

"I reminisce of your beautiful face, Swaddled so tight in your baby blanket, Your spirit so innocent…& guess what?
"I still have that baby blanket… It’s folded in the chest by my bed
& sometimes I unravel it, Just to put it around my neck & pretend it’s you I’m holding instead.
"Because everyday I wake up, With you beating in my heart & dancing in my head, Oh how I wish you could Twirl in my hands, One day soon my love… I promise we will dance again.
"But until that day comes I’ll be seeing you in my dreams, Replaying the sweet memory on repeat, Of my pinky in the palm of your little hand."

Catelynn shared her own tribute to Carly, posting a TikTok montage of photos with her daughter.
She captioned it: "Happy 13th Birthday Carly!!! We love you deeply and pray you have the time of your life today and everyday! We think of you always."
Late last year, Catelynn and Tyler reunited with Carly for the first time in two years after being kept apart due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple then commented on how grown-up their daughter appeared, saying that she looked like a "little adult."
Catelynn, 29, had tears in her eyes as the two talked about her interaction with the 12-year-old where they discussed a letter that the mom-of-four sent to her.
"It is always hard to say 'goodbye,'" the young mom admitted as the clip scanned to a video montage of previous reunions the trio had in earlier seasons of the show.
Things got more emotional following the family's dinner as Tyler broke down in tears after saying "goodbye" to his daughter.
The scene showed the visibly upset father embracing their adoption counselor, Dawn as she consoled him.
"She adores you guys so much, you know that?" Dawn assured Tyler. "And you're going to be the only thing she thinks about and talks about for the next weeks."
"She's going to keep thinking back on these special times you guys had together. It's so meaningful to her," she continued.
Tyler stepped back interjecting, "it just never gets easier," to which Dawn responded, "you wouldn't be human if it did."
While Carly's adoptive parents Brandon and Teresa have chosen to keep Carly out of the spotlight, the soon-to-be teen's original parents are happy just to remain a part of her life.
Catelynn told E!: "I think it's awesome to be able to show the journey of an open, semi-open adoption through the years and the ups and the downs and learning and navigating this relationship.

"I think it's super awesome that we can continue to do that in a way that can show our fans the journey but also in the way that it allows Carly's parents to feel comfortable with us sharing it as well."
The high school sweethearts are also parents to Novalee, seven, Vaeda, three, and Rya, eight months.
