7:36 am
thought my place wast safe because i wanted her to be calm. i said safety, safety, safety. that's what we're trained in social work. get kids safe, ask questions later. i -- i practiced all my skills. talk softly, don't ask her any questions. there are only a couple of questions i asked her. first of all, where did you come from, she told me. i said, is he home, and she said no. i said, is he in a car? she said, yes. i said, what color is it? because i want -- if we ran into the car, i wanted to have some other plan in my head. >> reporter: it's that quick thinking that helped bring jayme home to a family overcome with gratitude. nutter and jayme's aunt lynn met for the first time on sunday. >> my god. you're just -- i just wanted to meet you so much. it's just amazing. you could have set or done anything, and you did everything so right. >> reporter: and you got to meet the family?

nine months before being rescued. smart is now a child safety activist and joins us this morning from park city, utah. elizabeth, good morning. >> good morning. >> it's so good to see you. and jayme's family is telling us that she's doing as well as can be expected. based on your experience, what are some of the emotions that she may be feeling right now? >> well, right now is a very sensitive, very important time for her to sort of rebuild those connections with her family. i mean, her family's been torn apart in such a brutal way that -- now it's just vital that she has that time with her family to reconnect, to rebuild that foundation. to have that support so that she can move forward. so that she can move with her life. >> it's incredible to hear some of the details that are just coming out about jayme. she's just 13. what does it take mentally and emotionally to try and escape the person who is holding you
8:18 am
calehateen through and how she's able to escape. and she's truly a hero. >> i know that the sheriff told us that you've reached out to him and reached out to the closs family, as well. they were all very glad to hear from you. what did you want to say to them? >> i want them to know that anything i can do, i am more than happy to help them. and i admire them all and feel like everyone loves and supports them and wants to help them in every way we can. and at the same time, i think it's really important that we all give them the space and the privacy that they need to -- to rebuild their foundation right now. >> one thing that you said that really struck them was that jayme is not going to be the same person, that she is different now, and that she has to start her life anew. i also remember something you said that your mother said to you when you returned home. can you share it, please, with the audience. >> absolutely. my mother told me after i returned that what these people had done was terrible, and there
8:19 am
weren't words strong enough to describe how wicked and evil they are. they had stolen nine months of my life that i would never get back. the best punishment i could give them was to be happy. was to move forward. i think in jayme's case the same is true. she will not be able to go back to who she was before she was kidnapped. she will never be able to just return to life before. but that doesn't mean that this -- that what's happened needs to destroy her future or needs to define her future. >> and elizabeth, as with in your case, this has brought the community together. what can those around jayme do now to make sure that they treat her in a way that's respectable, that's respected, and that she feels confident in moving forward and not bad the way you sometimes were made to feel? >> i think it's really important -- and as with any victim, to really think about the way that you speak to victims. if you ask questions, really
8:20 am
think about what you're saying because for years when other people would ask me, oh, you were brought down in public before -- and why didn't you run, and why didn't you scream -- for years, my brain didn't actually hear that question. w "why didn't you," i heard, "you should have" which made me feel guilty, which made me feel like i didn't do enough to survive. in fact, i'm not ashamed of anything i did because ultimately i survived, and i'm here today. the same is true of each and every victim. >> you say that even making small choices for jayme is important for her recovery. why is that? >> well, i was kidnapped, i didn't get to decide when or what i ate or drank or where -- where i slept or what i was able to wear. all those decisions were made for me. i felt like i was completely powerless. and so when i came home, having the ability to make choices again, even small choices like what cereal i ate for breakfast
8:21 am
or what shoes i'm going to wear that day, those -- that was a big deal for me because i was so meith jayme jae in person, but said, if she wants space and sht is completely fine. i will never, never presume to push myself upon anyone. >> so much wisdom. so much that you've already shared with us and i know can help her. we thank you very much for joining us this morning. elizabeth smart, thank you. >> thank you. >> the family is hoping that that meeting does occur. a small group of women banded together to help keep the focus bringing jayme closs home. ahead and only here on "cbs this morning," they talk about creating a powerful symbol of hope and how they kept thoughts focused on a positive outcome. we'll be right back. -crafted, with 100% clean ingredients. just a few good reasons to give into your cravings.
