Oprah's Preview:The McCanns
Oprah - I hear you keep her, Madeleine's room ready for her..
Kate - Yep..err..it's all ready waiting..
Oprah - Do you go in the room often?
Kate - I do yeah.. go in about twice a day..
Oprah - Do you talk to her?
Kate - I do, usually. I mean I ..I tend to open and close the curtains, mornin' evening..Just say hello, really. Just to tell her we're still going..and we're going to do everything we can to find her.
Oprah - Do you let yourself go to the worst, sometimes?
Kate - I mean I do..I think it's natural..you know I know people mean well when they say don't let yourself go there.. its not gonna help going there.. but as a mum, inevitably there are times when I do. And they're the times that I kind of dip down.
Oprah - Do you think that somebody was watching your family?
Kate - I do now yeah..yeah..
Oprah - You think someone was watching you over a period of days or that?
Kate - ..which is horrible.. I mean it makes you feel sick, actually when you think about it.
Oprah - How has your marriage been through all of this because a lot of marriages, a lot of people get pulled apart.
Gerry - hum...I think, you know, a child abduction, I think it can destroy any family. There's no doubt about it. It's one of the most devastating things, and then if you look what's happened subsequently..err ... we, we've been supported tremendously well and I think that's helped us stay strong and stay together. And obviously, we're really united in our goal and our love of Madeleine and Sean and Amelie...
So why didn't the McCanns request for the reopening of the process, as it was their legal right to do so?
