CTC 2 Step 3 Continued: Women cannot normally bare the pain of losing a child so for Patria to bare the pain and continue life and act like nothing is wrong so others would not worry, she is a very strong and considerate character.
You can just feel the pain that Nico is feeling. I mean, whoever drew this (Burdge maybe?) obviously knows the character well enough to express this much emotion in a simple sketch. I love this drawing.
