'Teen Mom' Amber Reunited with Daughter

After an emergency child placement hearing in Indiana, 2-year-old Leah was placed back with her mother

After Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was charged with domestic abuse, her   daughter was made a ward of state. But now 2-year-old Leah is back in her mom's arms.

Portwood, 20, and ex-fiance Gary Shirley appeared in an Anderson, Indiana, courtroom last week for an emergency child placement hearing concerning their daughter. According to UsMagazine.com, authorities returned Leah to Portwood on Monday.

"Leah is moving into Amber's new home, where Amber had her daughter's bedroom all set up for her return," a source said. "Amber is so excited to have Leah back!"

On Nov. 18, Portwood was charged with attacking Shirley, 24, in front of Leah; she is faced with two felony counts and one misdemeanor count of domestic violence and battery.

The troubled mom, who is on medication for anxiety and depression, previously said she was striving to change her ways, so she could be a better mother to Leah.

"I'm trying to put the pieces back together," she said. "I have to get myself better so when I get my baby back, she sees her mom as happy as can be."

Do you think Amber can become a better mom? Chime in below!
