Many of the moms we meet on “16 and Pregnant” struggle with the way their lives ultimately shift after becoming parents, but before she even gave birth, Texas-nativeKristina faced one of the worst scenarios possible: the death of her baby’s father. While at the beach one day withTodd, a strong riptide pulled them under and horrifically, only Kristina survived. Todd’s passing was crippling for everyone, especially Kristina’s mom, Kim, who was on the sand when the two kids were pulled under.
Kim, as well as Todd’s family, encouraged the expecting teen to grieve alongside them, but Kristina mourned in her own, private way. It wasn’t until the mom-to-be spent an extended stay in the hospital due to pregnancy complications that she finally broke down. Shortly after bringing her son home, she decided to seek counselling.
Do you think therapy will help Kristina deal with Todd’s death, or can she get past the pain without needing to talk it out? Sound off in the comments!
