Teen Mom's Amber Portwood is currently locked up at Indiana’s Rockville Correctional Facility, where she's serving a 5-year sentence thanks to opting out of her court-appointed drug program. Amber was put into state custody on June 15, 2012, and it looks like her stint in the clink is going swimmingly! You know, aside from that time she befriended a lady named Sugarfoot and everyone being like "OMG what is happening?!"
Not only has Amber beaten her addiction to Fentanyl, she's also been busy earning her GED through TABE testing (Tests of Adult Basic Education)!
“I did my TABE testing for my GED placement and I did really well," Amber tells RadarOnline. "I scored in the advance book so I was very excited. So now I’m in GED classes on weekdays."
And guys? Turns out Amber is basically a genius.
“I got my scores back and I had college level scores in English," she says. "And I got a perfect 12.9 in social studies and science. I have 11 months of GED every Saturday here in CLIFF [Clean Lifestyle Is Freedom Forever] really paid off.”
Way to go, Amber! But the best part? Once this gal takes the GED in mid-August, she could get out of jail by October, which means she'll be home in time to spend the holidays with her daughter, Leah!
“I’m so excited and I’m really working hard studying so I can score high on the GED test,” Amber continues. “I’m working my ass off to get out of here!”
Despite voluntarily going to jail, Amber seems more than ready to reunite with her family, especially after a recent visit from her little one.
“Booboo sat on my lap the whole time we were playing games had a few snacks,” Amber says.“She’s so beautiful. She has long blonde hair down to her butt now and she’s getting tall. I can’t wait to get out and spend time with her!”
Amber will also reunite with her brother, Shawn Portwood who says “I believe when she gets out in October, or whenever that she will be a completely different person.... I think Amber will be a great motivational speaker and can make a living the responsible way, not by selling herself to Vivid Entertainment.”
Hmm, wonder who he could possibly be talking about …
Are you excited that Amber could get out of jail this coming October? We can't wait to hear about her experience with sober living!
