Check out this incredible footage of a true survivor.
On the home video, she bakes cookies with her mom and half-sister. "Hi. I'm Jaycee," Dugard says. "I want to thank you for your support and I'm doing well. It's been a long haul, but I'm getting there."
Jaycee's mom, Terry Probyn, pleads for privacy as her family heals. She talks directly to the camera: "We released this video so that you can see that we're happy and well," she says. "When we have more to share we will. As a mother, I am pleading for our privacy in this very public story. It is our desire to share the miracle with the world. But it must be done on our terms."
Probyn also says they have never received any money from a northern Calif. church that claims it is collecting money for the family. "We did accept financial support from an undisclosed benefactor and have no affiliation with any church," she explains. "Please give us the time to heal as a family, without the prying eyes of the photographers and the press."
What an amazing story.
ABC will air more of Dugard's video tonight on "20/20" and "Nightline."
