The couple, who live on £1,100 in benefits, believe they could save enough money to move abroad.
A former foster carer who took in one of Theresa's babies when she was just a day old insisted social workers were right to take the child away. The woman, who did not wish to be named, said: "The system isn't perfect but in this case they did a fantastic job.
"That little girl later went to a lovely home with a mum and dad who had been trying unsuccessfully to have a child for years.
They loved her so much and I know she will have a good life.
"She is not around parents who smoke and shout."
A controversial policy offering cash rewards to councils for arranging "forced adoptions" of newborn babies is to be scrapped after its dangers were highlighted by The Sunday Telegraph.
Under the initiative, town halls compete for payouts of up to £36 million for increasing the number of children they remove from their natural families and place with adoptive parents.
The original aim of the drive, announced by Tony Blair in 2000, was to reduce the amount of time children spend languishing in council care before finding permanent new homes.
However, critics have claimed that the Whitehall targets give councils a perverse incentive to take more children away from their natural parents, rather than trying to find homes for hard-to-place children already in their care
In 2002, the ECHR ruled against the British Government for removing a new baby from its mother in hospital and refusing even to let her cuddle it under supervision, when there was no evidence that the baby faced a serious risk at that time. The judgment came too late, though. The baby had already been adopted.

Oh yeah, sterilization is OK, just this one time>>>>WTF PEOPLE!!?!?!??!!
Maybe the problem is that this sick person is reacting to her situation...maybe if the government didn't get involved at all, she never would have had so many children.
Whoever says she should be sterilized, why don't you go ahead and line up to put your balls on the block? Doesn't sound good?
Oh, you're not as bad as her right?
What if a bunch of people got together and said oh yeah we all agree, you're not fit...
Slippery slope folks...
As disgusted as I am with this story, forced sterilization is not the answer.
If it is, then let's all call it quits, becasue someone out there is bound to think that YOU'RE the problem eventually.
Hows that sound?
