Sophia Abraham

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham is now expressing regret over leaving her daughter Sophia behind in Iowa while she moved to Florida months ago.

As reported two weeks ago, Farrah left 2-year-old Sophia behind in Iowa to live with her mom Debra Danielson, while she moved 1,600 miles away to attend school at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and to also pursue her modeling career. In a new interview with Life & Style, Farrah, 20, opens up about the regret and painful consequences of her decision.

“It was a very hard choice,” Farrah tells Life & Style, adding that she was “depressed” at the time. “The first couple of days [after leaving Sophia], I cried a lot.”

It however appears that several months later, Farrah has had a change of heart. “I miss my daughter a lot,” she says. According to Life & Style, Farrah has decided that she wants to move Sophia to Florida to come live with her.

“Farrah is in the process of bringing her to Florida for good,” a friend of Farrah’s confirms. “She has been talking to her mom about moving to Florida with Sophia. This way Farrah can still continue with her studies and have her daughter with her, and her mom would be there to give her the extra help she needs.”

Farrah’s ex-boyfriend Daniel Alvarez is however telling In Touch Weekly magazine that Farrah doesn’t have her priorities right. According to Daniel, Farrah is more concerned with partying than being a mom to Sophia.

“Farrah sometimes left Sophia with neighbors so she could go out,” says Daniel adding that Farrah has “big dreams” and wants to launch a clothing line and star in her own TV show.

OK! magazine chimes in reporting that Farrah usually ignores Sophia whenever she comes to visit her in Florida. “Sophia is either with a babysitter, because Farrah is out, or she’s being sent back to Iowa. One of the most important things for a child’s development is routine and stability and Sophia has neither,” says a source.

Farrah has also received some criticism for making her mom Debra, who was arrested in 2010 for chocking her, Sophia’s primary caregiver. The source adds that Farrah “had told pals her mom’s hit her before” that 2010 incident.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? IS SOPHIA BETTER OFF IN FLORIDA WITH FARRAH OR IN IOWA WITH DEBRA?

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham graces the latest cover of Life & Style magazine as she opens up to the mag about the reason she gave up her baby.

On the Sept. 13 episode of Teen Mom, Farrah sobbed as she struggled with the decision to leave her daughter, Sophia, with her mother while she attends school in Florida. “I would never leave [my daughter],” said Farrah.

Well fast forward to today and Life & Style is reporting she did just that by leaving the 2-year-old behind in Iowa with her mother Debra Danielson, moving 1,600 miles away to attend school at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale while also pursuing her modeling career. Farrah, 20, has been in Florida the past several months and Debra has since become Sophia’s primary caregiver.

In her interview with the mag, Farrah defends her decision. “Sophia is the No. 1 thing in my life,” Farrah says. “I’m just trying to be the best parent that I can. I take care of my responsibilities. I’m happy that I took the chance to move. I would never regret it.”

Farrah also praises her mother Debra for stepping in to help. “My mom is the best grandma,” Farrah says. “I want her [Sophia's grandmother] to be there for Sophia when I need to take care of my responsibilities, my education and earning an income for both of us.”

Farrah however admits she is also using this time to find herself since a number of her teen years were spent being a young mom and dealing with the death of Derek Underwood, the father of her daughter. The mag states Farrah’s “desperately trying to relive the youth she feels she was robbed of.”

“I’ve been trying to grow personally and emotionally,” Farrah admits. “I’m very much taking time to get back to myself and enjoy my freedom.”

But as more days go by, Farrah reveals she often struggles with her difficult decision. “She tells me she misses me and loves me. I’m tugged in many different ways daily — but I don’t want to limit myself or Sophia,” she states. Farrah also admits she doesn’t know when she’s coming back for Sophia.
