Even though Jackie said it was the hardest thing in her life to forgive her sister-in-law — and often ended up taking out her anger and hatred on her own husband — she needed to forgive in order to truly love her new baby girl Kacey, 18 months.
“It was something I had to do because Kasey came along and I realized I wasn’t loving her the way I was loving the girls because I had this hatred in me so I had to let it go and it order to do that I had to forgive Diane,” she candidly revealed.
Jackie also reveals the details of her family tragedy, and the heartbreak and struggle to move on in her new book I’ll See You Again.
