Jaycee Dugard Photo: Revealed!

by at . Comments

Held against her will for a staggering 18 years in a dump that could almost literally be described as a hellhole, Jaycee Dugard somehow emerged unscathed.

Now, with the first Jaycee Dugard photo made public since she was found alive in August, the kidnapping victim is slowly  adjusting to her normal life again.

"I'm so happy to be back with my family," she said.

She is living in seclusion with her mom, Terry Probyn, and the two daughters – Angel, 15, and Starlit, 11 – fathered by her alleged kidnapper, Phillip Garrido.

Jaycee says she has begun the slow process of recovery by riding horses, cooking meals and is thinking of collaborating on a book about what she endured.

"They are living a surprisingly normal life, considering the circumstances," Terry's stepmother, Joan Curry, tells the celebrity news publication's interviewer.

We admire her strength and wish her nothing but the best.

What a statement of female resilience! Jaycee makes me prouder than I already am to be a girl! What incredible strength! May God continue to bless her and keep her and her entire family.

and i think it was so cruel of the kidnapper to have children with her, and disgusting of his wife for helping him. I hope they both get what they deserve which is a lifetime in jail

I bet so many people gave up hope after so many years but i guess this proves that miracles do happen
