That's I want all the time. All the time I pray for her. For them. More for my mom and my sisters. I want to finish this all the time. Reporter: While clutcng her daughter, she describes the nightmare she suffered at the hands of ysidro Garcia. I can do nothing. I had to do what he want.

That's when the brainwashing starts. Reporter: But she grew worried about her daughter's safety, and turned to Facebook, contacting her sister. And finally, Tuesday, she worked up the courage to call police, ending a decade-long nightmare. I was really afraid about everything because I was alone. I think I was alone. But I wasn't never was. My family was with me. Reporter: Now, the neighbors in Santa Ana say they never suspected anything. They thought Garcia was a loving husband. But now, he is due in court, facing kidnapping and a host of other charges.
