    What a crop of crap. She did carry for this couple unfortantely the baby died because she had a stroke when she was only 24 weeks. There was no scam no forgery and no theft. She has a lot of friends who are rallying behind her and who know the truth. This case is all about the psycho intended mother who is out for revenge and a detective who knows she is friends with someone he doesn't like so he is throwing a pile of crap to see what will stick. Christina did nothing wrong and the truth will come out. She was heartbroken when she delivered early and has had a lot of major health complications since then. It must be a slow news day when you post stuff like this. If anything this whole case is civil there is NOTHING criminal about it. Hold your head high Chris, we are all behind you and we know the truth!
