I saw on yahoo news that Baby Jessica who fell in a well 18 years ago, is now 19 years old and just got married in a private ceremony.

Anyway.....this made me think about another Baby Jessica. Remember Jessica De Boer, the little girl who was adopted and the adopted parents were forced to give her back to the biological parents after raising her for the first 2 years of her life? I was wondering if anyone ever heard anything about her. I wonder how she's done. I guess she was born in 1991 so she would be turning 15 this year. I wonder how come Oprah or someone doesn't do a show so we can see how this child turned out and if she is okay. I searched the web and can't find anything about her since she was taken away. Just wondered if anyone else had seen or heard anything.

Jan DeBoer Tells What It Is Like To Give Up Child

I also found out that she was renamed Anna Lee Jacqueline Clausen Schmidt. Could not find much else though.

I remember Baby Jessica who fell down the well, but not the other one. It seems so long ago! If she's already married that means I'm getting old!

I know I'm waking up an old thread here, but I actually know the answer to this one.

Anna Schmidt - that's her real name - turned out fine. Here's a page with an article about her. The reporter describes her as:

"a self-possessed 12-year-old who adores her parents and her 9-year-old sister, makes friends easily and sings every Sunday before the congregation that once looked down its nose at her natural parents [...] She seems more bemused than haunted by her extraordinary history."

I remember both those stories. I was just a kid but I remember watching when they pulled baby Jessica out of the well. I remember following the other story on the news.

I remember baby Jessica very well. I vaguely remember the other. Glad to read the update by Pucca that Jessica #2 is doing well also.

I don't remember either... I'm the same age as the one that fell down the well, and I was five or six when the other one was given back to her birth parents. I'm glad they are both doing fine though!
