Farrah and Sophia have been on a book tour for her first book: My Teenage Dream Ended. Her most recent signing was at a Barnes & Noble in Omaha Nebraska.
Stormie Clark (Derek's mother) and her daughter Kassy heard about the event and decided to go, hoping to see precious little Sophia there. She was kind enough to share with alltheteenmoms.com exclusively her experience that day.

As you may remember from Teen Mom Farrah and Derek's family don't have the best relationship. Farrah fought Derek's mother over wanting visitation with Sophia. Since then Stormie and family have only seen Sophia a handful of times. So when they found out that Sophia may be at Farrah's book signing they thought it would be the perfect opportunity to go and see her in person.
Stormie brought along her 2 other granddaughters as well. As soon as they walked in they spotted Sophia. Her granddaughter Ali headed straight for her. The family all watch Teen Mom so Ali recognized her right away. These two little girls had only met two other times in their little lives. Ali and Sohpia are only 2 months apart in age and began chatting right away.
Stormie: "I had tears in my eyes seeing them together. It was so bittersweet."
Debra was following Sophia around the store.
Stormie: "I said hi to Debra. She said hi. I asked her if I could take a picture of Sophia & Ali. She said sure. I was very grateful for that, but not 100% certain that she knew who I was...Debra & I have never met."
Debra took Sophia back up to the front where Farrah was busy signing books for fans. Stormie: "I had also planned on trying to talk with Farrah about our issues and that hopefully we could move past them... but I could see that she was busy signing books and I didn't want Farrah feeling uncomfortable during her book signing, so I decided that we should leave."

Little Ali cried when she had to leave Sophia. It's so sad because she doesn't understand why she can't see her cousin. It seems to me that Stormie is very willing to work things out with Farrah. I'm sure she would do anything to be a part of her granddaughter's life. Sophia is all that is left of Derek and no matter the family drama, the children shouldn't be affected. After talking with Stormie, my heart goes out to her. I hope that they all can work out their differences in the future and at least learn that the children are the most important. I wish the entire family the best of luck!
