    strange story, she sounds like she had all kinds of problems, and her family seems odd. Like they’re all a bit ‘slow’ .

    Very sad case, hers, even sadder than the others. She had a baby taken away from her right before she disappeared and from what I read she blamed her mother for that and even now doesn’t want anything to do with her mother.

      Well, I hope all is forgiven now.

        Do you think that’s the reason why Michelle isn’t receptive to her mother and grandmother visiting with her? Because her baby was taken away from her?

        Could that be the reason why she has no desire to receive visits from her mother and grandmother? Because she had her baby taken away from her?

    Apparently, Michelle’s mother abandoned her twin in a dumpster. So I’m guessing there are a LOT of reasons…..

    “Michelle‚Äôs mother abandoned her twin in a dumpster” ….Good grief!

    For her, life has been horrible from the get-go, and hasn’t really let up until now…I guess it can only get better. I hope so anyway…

      I think that out of all three of them Michelle needs the most time to fully heal and process what’s happened over the past 12 years since she’s been missing.

    I just read she needs reconstructive surgery due to all the beatings on her face she endured in captivity. Jesus.

    it really sounds like her family was horribly dysfunctional and she was probably an easy target for bad guys…abuse at home, raped at school… What a sad story.

    Could someone help me with the ages here please? I’ve read she was raped and had a baby in junior high. That baby is now 13 and she has seen him, but I’m still trying to figure out how she would have been 19 or so in junior high. Where I am from it is middle school and that would be appx. 11-13. I am totally confused and don’t get it…given the week I’ve had, I’m sure it is a me being dumb thing but I’d appreciate anyone who could help me here. And as for Michelle and her family….she may have fallen through the cracks initially but it sure looks like the Dejesus family will be hers now. Every story I’ve seen on her biological fam…well, they don’t seem to be in it for her. I hope she gets the help and surgery she needs. I hope ALL those girls (now women) get what they need. They are an inspiration to us all.

    The thing about junior high might be a mistake.
    I get the idea she was very slow mentally so she might still of been in school at 19, but probably not junior high.

      Thank you. I just wasn’t sure and with all the info coming out here and there I got confused. I’m not sold on her family anyway so…yeah, maybe some info was lost somewhere.
