Family Court Justice Linda Dessau gave the order for the boy, known as Jamie, to undergo the puberty-blocking hormone therapy after it was revealed that he had been living as a girl for the past two years.

The child's mother said that she feared for her son's life in case of an early onset of puberty could lead to self-harm or suicide. "At the moment Jamie can live comfortably as a girl, is socially confident and suffers no teasing or social isolation", she said.
