Amber Portwood has made her miraculous escape from prison, and we're weeping tears of joy. This Teen Mom star was sentenced to five years behind bars after opting out of her court-ordered drug rehab program, but she only served a mere 17 months thanks to good behavior and a commitment to better herself. We're so happy for our girl Amber, but no one is more excited than her brother, Shawn Portwood!
"Amber is out and looking better than she ever has because she is clean (of drugs) and healthy," he tweeted on November 4 (the day of her release). "Time to start a new chapter. #Iloveyousis."
Sob! Does anyone else think Amber and Shawn should get matching tattoos of each other's faces? There's nothing like brother/sister bonding! In other news, Maci Bookout's mom, Sharon, contacted Shawn to offer her best wishes, and he responded, "I think I speak for everyone when I say we all are [rooting for her]. But after spending the day with her I know she will be OK."
Shawn and Amber spent her first day as a free woman trolling around Anderson, Indiana, and eating giant burgers, which is clearly an indication that she's poised for success. And later that same night, Amber reunited with her daughter, Leah!
We have a feeling Shawn's musings on Amber are right on the money. Fingers crossed that this new chapter of her life will be healthy, happy, and free of infected thumb dermals!
