A mother who gave birth to a daughter at 12 years old after being raped by her older brother and gave her baby up for adoption has spoken about her heartbreaking ordeal.
Tressa Middleton, now 21, who spent much of early years in care became addicted to drugs and alcohol after the arrival of Annie. Her daughter was then taken into care.
Miss Middleton, from Broxburn, Scotland, who has since turned her life around, appeared on ITV’s This Morning to talk about her harrowing experience.
Miss Middleton has also detailed her experiences in a new book, Tressa: The 12-Year-Old Mum’, which she said she has dedicated to her Annie.
In a touching moment Miss Middleton said: ‘I just hope one day she does forgive me.
‘I know it’s going to be hard for her when she finds out her uncle is actually her dad.’
She added: ‘I hope she doesn’t blame me for not telling people what actually happened when it happened and for drinking and going off the rails.
