Abigail Hernandez says she's a survivor, not a victim
“I do not want to be treated like a victim,” she told close family friend Amanda Smith. “I want to be treated as a survivor.”
“Her recovery is ongoing, but she continues to get better every day,” Smith said.
Among those testifying to Abigail’s current healthiness is her father, Ruben Hernandez of Tamworth, who is divorced from her mom, Zenya Hernandez, but stays close to his daughter.
He had no trouble describing his daughter’s health.
As for her alleged kidnapper?
“Of course I’m glad they arrested (Kibby),” he said. “I look forward to the day when we can put this behind us so that Abby can resume a normal life. She deserves that.”
“What we are all witnessing here is answered prayer, the miracle of God’s blessings,” he said. “I am thankful to all who prayed and kept the faith.”
