Jaycee Dugard and her two daughters were photographed looking happy and healthy, grabbing ice cream as a family. Their outing comes shortly after Jaycee appeared on ’20/20′ and discussed how they were able to survive and thrive during their horrific imprisonment, seven years ago.
After living an unimaginable nightmare, Jaycee Dugard is hoping to meet her Prince Charming and settle down.
Jaycee Dugard still believes in fairy tales. Isn’t that amazing? After being held captive for 18 years by Phillip and Nancy Garrido, Jaycee was finally freed last year and has been trying to live a normal life with the two daughters she was forced to bear for her captor. And now she’s hoping to find her “happily ever after.” According to the National Enquirer, the 30-year-old is hoping to meet Mr. Right and get married. “Jaycee wants to live the American dream and find a loving, gentle man to share her future — thoughts she couldn’t imagine while in captivity,” says a publishing source familiar with Jaycee’s untitled book. “She wants a storybook wedding, a long white wedding dress, a handsome prince of a husband and some pet cats.”
A year after Jaycee Dugard was saved from 18 horrific years of being a sex slave to a sadistic kidnapper, a family insider says writing the book is an important step in the mom of two’s recovery, and that she’s hoping to help others by telling her story.
Jaycee Dugard has been to hell and back. But she survived. Kidnapped at the age of 11, for 18 years she was held hostage in a backyard shelter and forced to bear two children to her kidnapper, a convicted sex offender. Now she is choosing to tell her tale of horror in a memoir in the hope that it will help her to move on — and help victims of similar crimes. “I’m not surprised by her decision,” a family friend told Star magazine. “She’s a wonderful girl and it’s a totally selfless act to reach out to other victims if it can help in their recovery — even at the cost of having to revisit her own nightmare again.”
