Now, almost four years on, she has given a moving Mother's Day interview about how she and Nerra overcame their heartache - a testimony to the resilience and strength of sisterly love.
But, having taken on Tammia's role, Nerra began missing a lot of school and was eventually placed in foster care by concerned social services.
Tammia so impressed the social workers, she was granted guardianship of Nerra - three months after giving birth to Amaar.
Nerra, now 16, is also just about to take her GCSEs and is studying childcare at college.
To mark her bravery and resilience, we are making Nerra a Sunday Mercury Wonderkid.
One notable pilgrim was Count Fulk Nerra
of Anjou (987-1040) whose nickname, `the Black', belies the fact that he was a great enthusiast for Jerusalem going there at least three and probably four times.
