The daughters of Jaycee Lee Dugard, Angel, 11, and Starlit, 15, are undoubtedly going through a tough time since they were thrust into the spotlight less than a week ago. Compounding their troubles is the added confusion of being told that Jaycee, the person they thought was their big sister, is actually their mom.
In an interview with PEOPLE Jaycee’s stepfather, Carl Probyn says of the two girls, “They thought Jaycee was their sister. People have to realize this will take years of therapy.”
But it’s not all bad news, according to Probyn, Dugard’s reunion with her mother, Terry Probyn, has been “the happiest time of her life, and they are bonding.”
Don’t expect to see Jaycee and her two girls anytime soon though, according to Probyn the family members are in an undisclosed house that’s being guarded by the FBI and they are turning down all offers of interviews and TV shows.
