Local news article: 5 years later, officials praise kidnapping victim's tenacity, strength
from the article...
"As she turned off of North-South Road onto this cut-through street, a car pulled up," Young said. "She had blisters and (the driver) said, 'Do you want a ride?' and she said, 'Isn't it strange how God answers your prayers?'"
It literally took my breath away when I saw this was going to be on 20/20 tonight. I have thought about her so much over the years! Such an amazing and strong young woman. I wish nothing but good things for her.
Wow such strength
Kidnapping survivor on how she stayed alive in captivity and never lost hope
Oh my gosh, she's a mamaaaaaaaa!!!! Baby, I could not admire your strength anymore if I tried! You are amazing. You are a beautiful light in this world that has lots of shadows. Hug your mama and your sister and now your new baby! I know you are going to be an amazing mom who will show your son all the beauty this world holds. You certainly have made me change my attitude for the day. If you can overcome such horror and enjoy the beauty of today, so can I. Today, I will smile, in your honor.
Mods- since she has decided to come forward with her strength, should her name be re-added to the thread? That way people can find it? She is such an inspiration.
Name added back to the title due to Abby coming forward and speaking about her abduction.
Very brave young lady.
Abby Hernandez’s Kidnapping: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know | Heavy.com
I was just able to watch the 20/20. I was in awe of Abby's strength back then but even more so now, and her character. I wish her and her new family all the happiness for the future. Hope, oh yes hope. Sometimes everyone needs to have hope but hearing it from someone like Abby, under the circumtances she was in, just complete and utter admiration. As mentioned in the show, to those who doubted her? Shame, shame, shame on you!
This has made me very happy as I always had HOPE that one day Abby would go public with her story and finally own it as her own.
I am so far behind as I have not been here much since summer due to health issues but I was able to watch part of the 20/20 episode. This was just a month before her 20th birthday I believe. She's amazing and could teach others much.

Thank you for the update, going back to catch up. I’ve been thinking about Abby.
ETA: And yes, Shame, Shame, Shame!!!!!!! )
(Thank you! Nice to see you, Steleheart )
Oh my goodness...I just turned on my TV to watch 20/20 which I have programmed to record every episode on my DVR.
It’s called “What Happened to Abby”. AH will be on the show talking about her time in captivity.
IIRC this miiight be a repeat episode? It’s Season 8, Episode 4. Will crosscheck the date. I meant to watch it before...
Gosh. This is intense....it’s going to be hard to watch...
I hope she’s doing great, as best as possibly can be expected after something like this.
I would love to see on this show that she is doing well.
ETA: Brainfart; this must be a repeat. I’m glad because I didn’t see it the first time al though I had meant to.
