Going on with life after a child abduction is hard, Patty says, but she has been determined to move forward. "I refused to let the man who took Jacob take anything else," she says. "You can't have my marriage. You can't have my other children. You can't have my sense that there's more good people in the world than bad."
Like the Aisenbergs, Patty says despite getting on with life, Jacob is always on her mind. "There are some happy moments in your life, but there will always be that hole in your heart," she says. "We know Jacob and the potential he had, and there's this hole that stays with you as you go forward."
