Jaycee Dugard & Terry Probyn, 'A Special Edition of Primetime with Diane Sawyer'For 18 years, Jaycee Dugard was held captive after having been kidnapped at a bus stop within sight of her home in California when she was 11 years old. She was rescued in August 2009 along with two daughters fathered by her abductor.

She sat with her mother, Terry Probyn, by her side to talk with Diane Sawyer on a 'A Special Edition of Primetime' (Sun., 9PM ET on ABC).

The women recalled the emotional moment over the phone when the authorities called Probyn at work to tell her that Dugard had been recovered.

Probyn said her response was that it was "absolutely unbelievable. And then it was disbelief. I said, 'No, you're joking. Don't do this to me. This is not funny.'"

Dugard was so overcome with emotion, she couldn't speak at first, and then she told Probyn about her two daughters. It was all a shock, and even today when talking about it the women got emotional again.

What's heartwarming to see is that Dugard appears healthy and happy. The experience she went through will always be a part of her, but it looks as if she's choosing to not allow it to dominate her or control her future.
