The mother of one of three women held captive for about a decade in Cleveland was in shock and with sheer joy as she spoke to the media on her daughter having come home. Nancy Ruiz stated  "All I did was grab her and hug her. I didn't want to let go. This moment I still feel like it's a dream. I still pinch myself. I know she's there, and she's gonna be there."

On having seen and talked with the other two women who were held captive, Mrs. Ruiz said she had the opportunity to spend quality time with all three of them. And "it was awesome." Still reacting with joy and happiness, Mrs Ruiz stated, "there's no way to describe the beauty of just seeing them."

When asked if she had met and spoken with the man who helped rescue the women, Mrs Ruiz said, "we will get together to thank him; because he couldve turned his back. And he chose not to. He chose to help her, so we thank Mr. Ramsey."

Mrs. Ruiz also made it a point to answer a reporter on Gina's faith by saying, " she never left it. She prayed. She spoke to God, just like I did."

Wearing a bright hooded shirt, DeJesus was escorted into her home by a woman with her arm around her.

Earlier Wednesday, Amanda Berry arrived at her sister's home. Berry's sister made a brief statement thanking the public for their support and also asked for privacy.
