In her exclusive interview with Sawyer, Dugard said, "When something happens, they don't think about the whole family. Like, there's a sister and there's a mother, and there's other components. It's not just the victim. I really hope to help families... when they need healing."
While Dugard's strength and unflinching honesty amazed the millions who tuned in and turned her book into a bestseller, many were also inspired by the hope her mother held onto that she'd see her daughter again.
"I knew in my heart that one day I would get to hold her..you just got to hold on, believe and hold on," Probyn said.
Probyn and Bailey weren't surprised by the reaction Dugard's story provoked.
"She's an amazing woman and the book is incredible and really gives a snapshot and a perspective that obviously you can't get from anybody else," Bailey said today.
