Teen Mom 2 follows Chelsea, Leah, Kailyn & Jenelle with each episode interweaving the stories of these four young women as they balance life’s responsibilities while facing the adversity of motherhood. In season 5 of Teen Mom 2, we see our four girls growing up fast and having to deal with very adult responsibilities. From facing medical issues with their children, to drawn-out custody battles, relationship ups and downs, to new pregnancies and abortion--this season continues to show how hard it really is to have a child as a teenager and how the decisions you make can often have lifelong consequences. Faced with incredibly tough challenges, these four girls struggle to pursue their dreams but are often forced to sacrifice their former ideas of how their lives would turn out. But there is optimism among them; they have the dedication to push through life's roadblocks and care for their children, now almost four years old, the best they know how.
