          ‘I Hope They Don’t Lose Hope,’ Says Mom Of Her Two Surviving Children Learning To Cope With Their Sister’s Violent Death


          December 15, 2016

          Since 6-year-old Lauren was stabbed to death by mom, Allison’s, (then) boyfriend, David, five years ago, Allison says her surviving children have found their own ways to cope with the loss.

          “When she’s not being forced to talk about it, it’s like it didn’t happen,” says Allison of Lauren’s twin in the video above. But Lauren’s older brother, she says, had a tougher time after Lauren died; blaming himself for years. She says he tells her he wishes that he had “done something” that day. “We just keep telling him that ‘you did exactly what I would want you to do, and you stayed safe.’”

          The grieving mom says she worries about how the traumatic experience will affect the children as they get older. “I hope they don’t lose hope. I hope they keep trying for happiness and love.”

          As for herself, Allison says she feels like she has been “divided in two” since Lauren died.
