    Me too, peeples. I feel really bad for her too. I think she's had a tough life from all the media exposure when she was young.

    Know what's great? That a trust was set up, for her, when she turned 25. The money was not spent to help the parents, and the parents thought about their girl's future. That, I think, is part of a special story which ended well...

    Good deal, Jessica. I'm pleased for you...live well, and live long...

    Best-

    I know, Kimster. She must have gone through a time warp, because otherwise I'm getting old! lol

    Baby Jessica 30 Years Later: ‘My Life is a Miracle’

    http://people.com/human-interest/baby-jessica-30-years-later-my-life-is-a-miracle/

    While some have assumed that Jessica became wealthy as an adult, thanks to a trust fund set up by people from all over who watched the rescue unfold, she says much of the $1.2 million in the trust disappeared during a stock market dive in 2008. Much of the remaining funds went toward buying the family’s modest house, which features a large backyard for the kids.
