A teen mom in North Carolina had her photo banned from her high school yearbook.
According to KLTV, teen mom Caitlin Tiller took her school photo holding her 1-year-old Leelin. The school didn’t appreciate the extra face in the photo and decided to pull it from the yearbook a few days before its release.
Caitlin, who graduated Wheatmore High School last December, is currently attending college while working 30 hours a week to support her son. Caitlin said that she’s proud to be a teen mom and that she wouldn’t be the person she is today without her son.
Caitlin said: “I wouldn’t be the person I am today with out him … So I brought my son, thinking that he could be in the yearbook with me and two days before the book was due I find out he can’t be in.”
Tiller said that the school told her the photo was banned because it promoted teen pregnancy. Tiller believes, however, that she could be a role model for other teen moms.
Caitlin said: “They should be proud that the students are willing to stay in school and graduate and make something of their self and not try and hide it.”
Do you think the teen mom’s photo should have been banned from the yearbook? The school hasn’t commented on the situation except for saying that school photos are meant for students and not other family members.
