ABC Nightline Update Tonight at 10pm

I just learned from ABC Nightline that at 10pm tonight they will air an update to our story (Hope Jackson). That is all I know! Many weeks ago I heard others came forward after the story first aired and Hope may have violated her probation, but I don't know for certain if any of that is true. I guess we will find out tonight at 10pm. Tune in if you are curious too!

Would you provide a summary? (Can't believe you're hearing it when it airs, too! Crazy!)

Or did it post online also the first time, in which case I hope it will again? Saw that one "live" so didn't even look for it.

It was so surreal to see you guys on the first 'go round.'

Having followed your family and prayed for you guys throughout Christi's battle and all these years of how gracefully you continue to carry on her legacy, and seeing someone try to "steal" that for their own gain was maddening.

One of those times where I couldn't help but think of when Jesus overturned the tables of the money changers in the temple in 'righteous' anger.

The way Hope has tried to 'defile' the real life battles of others - and even almost defiling her very name - makes me think of that demonstration of Jesus showing that righteous anger isn't a bad thing (of course key word, righteous!) and I trust that He's going to bring redemption and good out of all this 'yuck' and additional pain Hope (and some other twisted folks out there) has tried to inflict.

Continuing to pray in San Diego - and praying that from this platform on Nightline that God will bring about good from the additional pain and loss and such that Hope has tried to inflict.

I only watched a few minutes of the show last night, but in the first show I was so disappointed that the focus was on the "stars" who were taken in by Jackson's lies - instead of focusing on the goodness of Christi and her struggle with NB and how horrible a person Jackson is. *sigh*

I was just watching Nightline Prime and I can't believe what I am seeing. I grew up in Montana, and met Hope while camping there about 20 years ago. She and I became friends and she told me that she had cancer. We exchanged numbers and talked quite a bit. I believed I was a close friend, and I never thought she would lie about something like that. As time went on I began to realize something was not quite right. A few years later I walked into a fast food chain in my home town, and she was there working at the counter. I confronted her and she went in the back and wouldn't speak with me. I did feel scammed because I felt for her and cried for her as she told me how she was going to miss out on all the things I would get to do growing up. Clearly she has had some mental problems for quite some time. I feel terrible that she continued to scam others and on a much more cruel level of using other families sick children to do it. Its very sad all the way around.
