    Post Britain's Youngest Mum: Pregnant at 11 Will Fight to See Her Daughter

    Tressa Middleton's pregnancy four years ago shocked the nation when she admitted having sex while drunk and spoke of her excitement at becoming a mother.

    Now the Scot is 16 and fighting for the right to see her adopted daughter again, as the uneasy images of her holding her baby are shown for the first time.

    She yesterday admitted spiralling into a deep depression and turning to alcohol and drugs after the baby was born, when she found herself battling to keep the infant.


    Miss Middleton said she has quit drugs and alcohol and spoke of her regret at ever letting her baby go.

    She told the Scottish Sun: 'I'm not a big drinker now and I don't smoke hash any more. In the past I've cut myself but I don't do that any more. I'm going to give myself a couple of years to get my life sorted, then I'm going to fight for access to my little girl.

    When her daughter was born in 2006, the pair were taken into foster care. Eighteen months ago, a child psychologist decided it was in the best interests of the infant that she be adopted.

    Miss Middleton signed papers handing over her daughter to an anonymous couple who, when the adoption became official, decided that they did not want to allow the birth mother any access.

    Her only contact is now a letter from the child's new parents every six months, updating her on the little girl's progress.

    Miss Middleton said yesterday: 'I got to meet her adoptive parents but I wasn't allowed to know their names. They were maybe mid-30s. They seemed lovely but it doesn't really matter who was taking her - I never wanted to let her go.

    'After I'd signed the adoption papers, I went to court to fight for twice-a-year contact. I'd even tried to make a deal that if I signed the papers I would get to see her once a year, but the adoptive parents didn't want that. They don't want me to see her. They want to get on with their lives. It makes me hate them.


    When she became pregnant in 2005, the case prompted dismay from church and family groups, amid criticisms that a Scottish Executive campaign to cut teenage pregnancies had failed.

    Concern over 'broken Britain' rose further when details of Miss Middleton's chaotic home life in Armadale, West Lothian,emerged.

    She was one of six children - by four different fathers - to her then 34-year-old mother, who said she was 'proud' of her daughter for keeping the baby.

    On the bleak streets where Miss Middleton was raised, petty crime is rife and drink and drugs are ever present. Boarded-up windows abound and gardens are strewn with bed frames, discarded mattresses and other rubbish.

    Children gather on street corners and it is far from unusual to see young girls pushing prams.

    Despite barely being out of primary school, Miss Middleton smoked up to 20 cigarettes a day, used cannabis and downed cocktails of Buckfast tonic wine and vodka.

    Speaking under the cover of anonymity at the time, she disclosed that she had discovered the pregnancy weeks after having drunken sex in August 2005.

    Drawing on a roll-up cigarette while heavily pregnant, she said: 'I slept with him because I was drunk and I wanted to. I don't regret it because if I didn't have sex with him I wouldn't have my baby. I knew straight away that I couldn't have an abortion because that's something I don't believe in.'

    The girl was scared to tell her mother who, ironically, had given birth to her youngest child days before her daughter found that she was pregnant.

    Miss Middleton admitted that she had an argument with her mother after breaking the news of her pregnancy.

    'It was hard but it has brought me and my mum closer together,' she said. 'It's good to know I'll have my mum there to help me if I need her.'

    Now 16 and legally an adult, she is able to speak openly about her experiences for the first time and has also allowed the images of those early moments after the birth to be published.

    Miss Middleton, who believes she has 'turned a corner' in her life, hopes to join the Army and prove that she deserves to see her child again.

    She spoke yesterday of the time when she first felt that she would lose her daughter.

    This came before the adoption was even official, when the baby went to live with her foster family and the teenager was allowed to see the child only every three months at a family centre.


    The young mother said: 'My daughter sometimes called me "Mummy" then one day she called me by my first name and called her foster carer "Mum". It really hurt and I burst into tears. Then she wouldn't come to me. She refused and would start screaming. It felt like every time I saw her I was losing her more and more.

    'The adoptive parents gave her their surname. They've kept her first name the same, but hearing that her name had changed was heartbreaking. It's like they're turning my wee girl into someone different. She was dressed different and her hair was different. It was hard to see someone else bringing up my wee girl.'

    Miss Middleton is not allowed to know where her daughter is living or see photographs, although the latest progress letter, from March, described the three-year-old as 'a very happy, chatty, self-confident and together little girl.'

    Miss Middleton said: 'When I read it I just started crying. It says she can read numbers 0-9 and count to 20. That's all the things I wanted to teach her as her mum. It's wee simple things like that which affect me.

    'I get upset when I see wee girls walking past with their mums. I miss my wee girl every day. I've kept all her clothes from when she was a baby. I keep under my pillow a wee pink Babygro and hat from when she was born.'

    Miss Middleton, who now has only limited contact with her own family and lives in Dumfries, admitted, however, that adoption was in her daughter's 'best interests'.

    But she added: 'It was the hardest thing I've ever done. I don't think I can give my daughter the life she needs just now.

    'When I'm older I want to build a relationship with my daughter. I'm concentrating on sorting myself out so that one day I'll hopefully see my wee girl again. I love her to bits.'

    So...what? Is this only a confirmation that Britain has spiraled into utter and total decadence for an 11 year old to become pregnant? How sick can those people be? What's wrong with Britain?

    The decadent bit is not the girl getting pregnant at 11, but the lowlife who gets an 11-year-old drunk, then sleeps with an 11-year-old, and impregnates her in the process. Likewise, the parents who do not have their daughter in check enough to make sure she doesn't drink or have sex, least of all in combination, at such an age.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    At age 11 (and perhaps even sooner), she was a heavy drinker and a hash smoker who had drunken sex with what we must presume was a completely random guy. And then, after her pregnancy, she all of a sudden has sufficient sense of morality to oppose abortion?
    Does that not strike you as a bit too selective an approach to morality? Would it not have been infinitely more noble of her and show of good character to not drink alcohol while still a child, stay away from drugs and maintain her virginity until she became an adult and in enterered into a commited relationship?
    Opposing abortion with her track record strikes me as hypocrisy more then character.

    Where do you start, it is very hard to try and narrow down what is happening in this country, but if I had to make an interpretation, I would say that the problems here stem from a combination of;

    a) Greed
    b) base materialism
    c) Egotism

    I think another problem that other countries don't have as much, is a class system. For example, when people are from the working class in Britain (me included) you are brought up to believe that you are scum of the earth, and you hear it so often, you begin to believe it. On council estates, you have little hope of a job, the education is non-existent, and alcohol and drugs are relatively cheap and available, and having sex is a free past time.

    The situation in Scotland, one may argue, is even worse, in terms of unemployment, and social problems, as all there heavy industries, which the country relied on, have long gone.

    But this story is not that uncommon, in my school, a lot of people were sleeping together at 12 and 13, and about 7 of 22 in my form, where pregnant by the ages of 14 and 15. Drug use was high, smoking, and drinking were all common from 12 on wards. This is the reality of a British council estates. It must be worst now, is I was in School in the early 90's.

    If I had to put my finder on it, I would say that one of the biggest problems, at least on Merseyside and Lancashire, is lack of hope. They just give in. Drink, shag, take drugs is all they have.
    De weg naar de hel is geplaveid met goede voornemens.

    British sarcasm my Danish fellow. You make the same point in your post that I sought to draw attention to in mine.

    This is just a very sad story.

    Underage pregnancy is something that has always occurred in every society. It has very little to do with a "decadent society" or a society with looser morals, because no society advocates the practice of "babies having babies". Extreme underage pregnancies too place in the 19th and early 20th centuries just as today.They just weren't spoken about.

    As far a criticising the the girl's "morals", well, we might as well criticize the morals of a baby. An 11 year-old simply lacks sufficient perspective on life to judge the ramifications of her actions either upon herself or upon others.

    As for the man who got her pregnant, we don't know if he was an adult pedophile or sex-addict/lowlife or another youngster like herself who was raised without the benefit of decent parents.

    The primary blame for this personal tragedy lies with those who had both the ability and the responsibility to have prevented it from happening in the first place i.e, the girls parents.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    If the baby was adopted by a decent white family then I am glad, she is obviously not fit enough to raise a child, very much influenced by chav and ghetto culture aswell.

    Don't be so hard on her. She was still a child when she got pregnant, she was hardly of a mature age to make the right choices. She obviously had a very poor start in life and I see her more as a victim, let down by both her parents and society as a whole. Please don't forget that we in the western world, live in a society where the white poor are generally forgotten or to be labelled as white trash. All the while, our respective governments heap healthy amounts of cash and resources on our ethnic friends to prevent them from rioting as they have done in so many cities in Europe and America when they don't get what they want.

    This girl is only just realising the mistakes that she made as a child, the least that we can do is to empathise with one of our own.
