Well they wanted to show the birth of Kirk and then Kirk at the academy, they just did not have the best plot device to explain the 25 missing years.
IMO, they could have had it that the blackhole was still around when they attacked the Kelvin, when the Kelvin damaged the Narada by ramming it, the Narada lost power and fell back in into the blackhole and then emerged 25 years later, slightly ahead of Spock. You would have had to change Kirk and Uhura learning about the attacked Klingon ships but thats no big deal.
