That is so sad. Shocking and sad. And how strange that she had some sort
of disorder to cause her to physically mature at such a young age.
Menstruating by 8 months old? Breasts and pregnant by 5? Yikes. Makes you
wonder if the fact that she developed breasts was part of the reason that
someone molested her in the first place. Sad that she could never tell them
who the father of her child was.

Just sad.

Probably caused by environmental factors, pollution specifically, IIRC.
There are parts of the world where very early maturation is *very* common
specifically because of pollutants. Happens to a certain degree here in the
US--puberty used to start much later than it does now, on average.

Yeah, but 8 months old. I bet that was some kind of endocrine disorder
rather than external causes.

sad not shocking, it is very unlikely that whatever sexual relationship she
had was consentual, sadly it's not rare for children that age to be abused,
but it is very rare to have such premature development such that they would
get pregnant

Read that "impossible" for a 5-year-old to consent to sex as most people
would define "consent".

I had a 5th grade student who was pregnant at the same time I was the first
time I was pregnant. Apparently older sister's boyfriend decided to show the
younger girl the ropes, so to speak.

Any sign of sexual activity in an elementary age child is automatically
considered abusive. In this case, legally the school couldn't inform the
girl's mother when she came to school and told us she was pregnant ("My
sister got a test for me, and I'm going to have a baby too!"-not what you
want to hear on breakfast duty!), but were required to report to DCS.

And while she was able to go through the pregnancy, psychologically she had
a lot of side effects from it, especially since she ended up with an
emergency C-section after a difficult labor. She ended up first in an
emergency psychiatric placement, then in a theraputic foster placement, and
unfortunately, while she was not able to care for the baby, legally the baby
couldn't be placed in an adoptive situation (which is what the girl's mother
wanted, since she felt she needed to take care of the girl, not the baby)
without going through major legal proceedings to sever her rights, since she
wasn't competent emotionally to give the baby up.

And this was a child twice as old as a 5 year old. I can't imagine it.

Unbelievable. Talk about babies having babies.

Was he ever charged with anything?

Ugh. I have an 11-year-old daughter. Who, thank god, still thinks *kissing*
is gross and is surrounded by protective adults. I've been the unprotected
child--and it is just crazy-making to think about it.
