11 yr old Gives Birth

November 01, 2009. just learned of a very disturbing story from our pals over at the UK newspaper NEWS OF THE WORLD. In today’s paper they’re reporting on a story about an 11 year old Bulgarian woman giving birth to a child by a 19 year old man.

Here's a piece of the article:

With proud husband Jeliazko Dimitrov, 19, at her side, Kordeza admitted: "It feels strange to be a mum and have a baby.

"I used to play with my toys but now she is my new toy. She is so beautiful, I love her. Violeta is the child and I must grow up. I am not going back to school - I am a mother now."

Kordeza met Jeliazko in the playground of her Roma gypsy school in Sliven, Bulgaria, when he rescued her from bullies.

This story gets even more disturbing. Apparently the 11 year old gave birth ON her wedding day. Here’s how the paper describes it:
She was still wearing her flowing white dress and tiara when she arrived at hospital and gave birth to 5lb 8oz Violeta.

But after spending the night with her newborn, Kordeza - who you can see on video below - changed back into her wedding dress and nipped out to finish the ceremony.

And oh, it gets better. Check out how the girl FOUND OUT she was pregnant:
within a WEEK of them meeting, their daughter was conceived. Kordeza admitted: "I haven't had sex education classes and I didn't know how to get pregnant. I'd never had a boyfriend and I'd never heard of condoms.

"I didn't know I was pregnant until my grandmother saw I had put on weight. I just thought I'd eaten too many burgers."

Well apparently it’s illegal to have sex with a minor in Bulgaria and so hubby may be getting locked up. Here’s what he has to say about it:
"I'm scared. I want to look after my wife and child. Instead I may be going to prison. I made a mistake but I am not going to apologise for that because now I have beautiful Violeta." Raina added: "Everybody seems to be against Kordeza and Jeliazko but what have they done wrong? They are a young couple in love."

This is one of those stories that just sounds so hard to believe.
