Amber Portwood’s Brother Updates Fans: “She Calls Leah Every Night”
Time to check in on Teen Mom's resident jailbird, Amber Portwood! This poor gal was sentenced to five years in the prison after opting out of her drug court program, but guess what? Jail has been a great experience for her! According to Amber's brother, Shawn Portwood, she's almost completed the CLIFF drug rehabilitation program (CLIFF even offered her a leadership position), as well as an anger management program!
"That is the one difference that I see in her most, Shawn writes on his blog. "She does not get nearly as angry as she used to. In addition, she nearly never curses, and when she does it is not that vulgar. In a letter Amber sent she said, 'I make sure I laugh or smile everyday here. I feel emotions, happiness, anger, and sadness but that is still better than before when all I felt was high.'"
Wow, sounds like Amber is making the most out of her time in jail! She's currently enrolled in a GED program, is working hard as a supervisor, and is focused on her post-prison career. Of course, the biggest thing on Amber's mind? Her daughter, Leah.
"Amber tells me that she calls Leah every night, and that she loves hearing her voice," Shawn writes. "Every chance I get, I send Amber pictures of Leah that I have taken or ones that are on Gary's Twitter page. She loves getting them, tells me often that they make her cry."
Looks like Leah still hasn't visited her mommy in jail, but at least they're in regular communication. Either way, Amber will be out of the clink in no time if she keeps up the good work!
