Life & Style exclusive: Teen Mom's Farrah Abraham: Why she gave up her baby

1139FinalCoverA.jpg"I would never leave [my daughter]," Farrah Abraham sobbed on the Sept. 13 episode of Teen Mom as she struggled with the decision to leave her daughter, Sophia, with her mother while she attends school in Florida.

But Life & Style can exclusively reveal that the reality star did make the decision to leave Sophia. In fact, her daughter is staying in Council Bluffs, Iowa with her mother, Debra Danielson, while Farrah is attending school in Fort Lauderdale for the past several months--and since, Debra has become Sophia's primary caregiver.

Farrah tells Life & Style in an exclusive interview, "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."

But as more days pass away from her daughter, Farrah says she often grapples with her difficult decision. "I'm tugged in many different ways daily -- but I don't want to limit myself or Sophia."

Teen Mom airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. on MTV.
