Krystina says she worries her daughter, Samantha, is on “a path to destroy herself and her baby.” Krystina says the 19-year-old is a type 1 diabetic and claims she is not managing her disease while she is pregnant, and she fears that the baby may be born with disabilities and that her daughter and unborn grandchild’s lives could be in danger. Krystina says she works seven days a week to make sure her daughter has her medicine and food to eat, and Samantha’s behavior has pushed her to her limit – so much so that she admits she has threatened to push her daughter down the stairs and stab her in the stomach.
