Today’s 'Oprah': A Mother’s Nightmare

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Oprah sits down for a heartbreaking interview with Beth Holloway, mother of missing Aruba teen Natalee Holloway.

After 2 1/2 years of intense investigations, police announced that the case for Beth’s daughter Natalee had been closed. How could any mother ever be at peace knowing their child is missing and that justice has not been served? Beth tries not to obsess about finding Natalee alive. “I don’t think that’s very healthy for your spirit, but it is something I fantasize about,” Beth says.

As for coping with Natalee’s disappearance, Beth thinks about her daughter daily. “It’s as if I have to wake up every morning and make that conscious decision whether I want to be better or positive. I do want to keep being positive and look toward the future and see what we can do for others,” Beth says. For more on Beth's story read her book, Loving Natalee: A Mother's Testament of Hope and Faith.

This is a media circus…
Today I saw in local news in Aruba, that 2 american tourists came to the island to reveal some information about Beth and the Twitty family.

They gave a very weird statement about Natalee being abused back at home, and some lies Beth wrote on her book. She knew in advance that her daughter was not going back home…

Beth arrived on the island @ 7:30 pm and not @ 11pm as whe wrote on her book.. And her first poster distributed around the island said something like ” I’m your mother, you can always call me, let’s talk” …

Hmmm
This Holloway case is a Big scam and we all were fooled!

Who is this kook? You can’t possibly believe that drivel…it’s not being reported by the media because it’s not true. It’s part of Aruba’s smear campaign against Beth Holloway because of the cover up of the events that happened the night Natalee disappeared.

Boycott Aruba! You and your sisters, daughters, etc. are not SAFE there and will not be protected!!

Beth…my heart goes out to you and your family…Nov 2006 my 37 year old daughter sadly gave birth to her stillborn son Jake…now we are lucky enough to wait for the birth of her second son…due 15th May 2008…
I am soooo lucky…I have the hope that Mandy will have a “live” child.
You had the wonderful experience of raising Natalee for 18 years…NOW YOU HAVE NOTHING!!!
IMO ARUBA & HOLLAND TOTALLY “BOTCHED” THE INVESTIGATION…Joran showed his “true colours” by throwing wine in the reporters face!
THE {ROTTEN} APPLE DOESN’T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE!!!!
Paulus encouraged his UNDERAGED son to drink and gamble…told Joran…NO BODY…NO CRIME…
Joran is a COWARD…I suspect that he didn’t intentionally Murder Natalee…but IMO Paulus covered up the crime!
SARCASTICALLY….JORAN SHOULD GET TOGETHER WITH BRITTANY…HMMM!!!!
