First Photo: Kidnap Survivor Jaycee Dugard Emerges from the Shadows
"I'm so happy to be back with my family," she tells PEOPLE.
Now living in seclusion with her mom, Terry Probyn, 50, and the two daughters – Angel, 15, and Starlit, 11 – fathered by her alleged kidnapper, Phillip Garrido, Dugard, 29, has begun the slow process of recovery. She rides horses, cooks meals and is thinking of collaborating on a book.
"They live a surprisingly normal life, considering the circumstances," says Terry's stepmother, Joan Curry.
