Her First Year 2011‑12


Moss Side teenager Frances didn’t have a great childhood. Her home life was chaotic, she was well known to Social Services and didn’t get to school that often. Some weeks after her 16th birthday she became pregnant.

This blog, written by both Frances and I, tells the story of her first year as a mum, determined to give her daughter a different childhood to her own.
