keeping their eyes on her.

Great news. I'm 41 live in Oz and Jessica's
rescue was widely covered here. I remember
the huge community
offers of help because of the logistics due to drilling the rescue
From memory, the ground was very hard and there was a
real danger of the existing

Yeah, like everybody else, what happened to
that 17 years. Thanks Val, good news is always appreciated. Imagine
all those people that helped out. No matter where they are now, they
can sit back and feel good about this.

Thats really awesome! i remember being glued
to the set when she was trapped. And I felt so happy at seeing her
rescued. I am glad that she is gratuating from school now, thats
really a wonderful story!
And yes, I also cant believe
it has been 17 years already! I feel like a like some kind of
ancient antique! It reminds me of the first time a girl stopped me
at a light and asked for the time by saying "Escuse me, sir?" My
heart dropped! I was like, "wtf? Sir?? It's dude baby!!" :)

I sure wish that there was a photo of the
graduating Jessica! It would do my heart good to see the lovely
young woman grown. We all recall the poor 'dirty' baby pics......it
would be sweet to see her strong and grown.
things can be accomplished when comunitys work together!
Even if it DOES make one feel old;):up::up:

She's a hottie now. Pics of her in either
maxim or Stuff or FHM forget which one.

Thanks for the heart-warming post. I lived in
Texas when the Baby Jessica rescue occurred and, like everyone else,
prayed and cheered when she was safely rescued.
Yep, and like
the rest of you, I feel really, really, really old! To think: I was
in my mid-30's when that happened.
Nice to see a happy ending.
