The McCanns say they get much of their strength from Sean and Amelie, who are now older than Madeleine was when she disappeared. " Those days when things are really bad and you just want to crawl under a rock and say, 'Make it all go away,' Sean and Amelie will come out with something like 'When Madeleine comes back, I'm going to give her this,'" Gerry says. "They talk about her all the time; she's a big part of their life. And you just think, if Madeleine walks through that door today, for Sean and Amelie it will feel like she'd never been away."

Kate says that despite Madeleine's disappearance, she tries her hardest not to be too overprotective. "They have to live," she says. "They have to experience life. There are times when you have to let go, for their development."
