The former “Teen Mom” cast member has certainly turned her life around after battling drug addiction and spending time behind bars (she was released early from prison last November after serving 17 months for violating probation surrounding a drug possession case). And after taking to Twitter with the heartfelt reflection yesterday, the 24-year-old received a mountain of support from her social media followers:
@AmberLPortwood you must feel AMAZING! Good for you!!!

But it’s not all serious sentiments when it comes to Amber’s status updates: She also likes to get silly from time to time with her adorable five-year-old daughter, Leah, as evidenced by this Miley Cyrus-inspired pose:
We couldn’t be more thrilled to see the mother-daughter duo in such good spirits. Keep the sweet tweets — and snapshots — coming, ladies!
