One Year Later: How Amish Teens Decided

The beer bottles and drinking that used to be part of her life have been replaced by baby magazines and late-night feedings. In June, she and Ruben welcomed a baby boy into the world. While she has no plans to return to the Amish, she said she's finally at peace.

Nelson can now be found in Illinois, where he works as a wrangler at a children's camp. He left his family to explore himself and to travel.

The "high-tech" Amish has traded in his buggy for a Camaro, and when he's not updating his profile on Facebook, he's learning what the outside world has to offer.

"A lot of people thought that I was going to stay Amish and then I guess I surprised everybody," he said.

As for Danny, his midnight escape took place two summers ago, but he's never been too far from home.

"Yeah, I'll go back," he said. "Probably be Amish in 10 years ... just for the sake of my parents, I guess."
