12-Year-Old Girl Has Baby Boy
The young girl, who may only be in grade 7, will be raising the baby with the help of her mom.
Earlier this year the Department of Community Services (DoCS) had to apologise when it was revealed the girl's father had warned them his daughter was sleeping with her boyfriend at her mother's house.
The department admitted more should have been done to help the family, but the girl's case had been overlooked by a stretched department.
This whole thing is very unfortunate and sad. A parents job is to protect their kids from situations like this. Now this young girl will never have the chance to be a child.
