    Such a heartbreaking story. I’m so happy they were saved. Now we have to hope the system doesn’t fail then again.

    The system will always fail. It's not a good thing. Something needs to be changed because there are children in the same place she way right now.

    What makes me so sick about this, is how she was super polite on the phone and even panicked saying “sorry! Sorry!” When the operator told her the address wasn’t right. She’s so used to having to be friendly probably to try to reduce her parents anger.

    Being polite is not a reaction to her parents. Maybe she has a sweet heart and she's just sincerely polite. She is really smart.

    Puberty is triggered by the hypothalamic-pituitary axis, specifically, the release of the GnRH hormones from the hypothalamus, which causes the release of LH & FSH from the pituitary. But this axis can only be triggered, and the hormones are only released if a critical mass is achieved, in most women, this mass is around 47 kg. If for whatever reason, this mass is not reached, likely due to poor nutrition, then the axis won't trigger puberty, and puberty will become delayed until the mass is reached, this is because the body does not waste resources on a non-essential process like puberty when there are barely enough calories to stay alive. This is why in the past when food was scarcer, puberty began later, and good nutrition today has caused a high prevalence of precocious puberty. From the situations, the children were living in (living on ketchup and ice), they all appear to have been malnutrition, and so Jordan wouldn't have been able to reach a critical mass and undergo the puberty transition. Even though she was 17 at the time, Jordan would still have been pre-pubescent, since she would never have started puberty in her malnutritioned state. Hence why she still sounds like a small child, her voice hadn't deepened yet. Presumably, once she escaped and began to receive proper nutrition, she would have begun puberty and reached menarche.

    Jordan now has social media! You can find her searching on TikTok and Instagram. Her account are named Jordan Turpin (she's a pretty girl and very famous now!). With her sister Jennifer often release some interviews to tell her story. Now the Turpin siblings are doing well! And I heard many people donated money to help them to have a better life.

A parent is someone who gives food, clothing, shelter, love, protection, and security to their children and these people did none of that for their children.

    I know the Turpin story but I'm 3 minutes into this video and I"m still getting chills as she explains how she couldn't make the call to 911 due to how she was shaking...What a brave 17 year old girl. and to see her only 4 years later doing so much better should inspire those who are also in a dark place in their lives. In only 4 years, probably even less time, everything she knew about life has changed for the better. THERE IS NOTHING YOU CANNOT OVERCOME!!! What a heroic, brave girl she was and has become!!!

    You guys are gross. Her speech is from being sheltered and abused. She's a beautiful girl, makeup is a lie when worn by anybody pretty or ugly but she doesn't need it. This is just how television works, they slap makeup on to make people perfect, being perfect is an unrealistic standard reinforced by makeup but a lot of you actually need it just to fit in. But why is it a standard of beauty? She's been through a lot and is probably way more grateful for what she has now than any spoiled chick with plastic caked on driving her dad's Audi, and that is what makes her beautiful. Not the makeup you women like to compare yourselves to

    @Widow Rumstrypze Not after age 4. I sincerely suggest you check out the case of the “feral” child named Genie - or any case of “feral” children rescued after age 4. It’s impossible after the speech-related brain centers are not developed due to an EXTREME lack of socialization. In Genie’s case, she was never able to learn language despite decades of receiving intensive speech therapy from virtually the most skilled doctors/psychologists in the entire nation. I don’t doubt AT ALL that this young woman in the video (and the rest of the Turpin children) also experienced SEVERE abuse. Keep in mind - Genie was either an only child, or she was kept completely separate from the rest of her family; locked in a closet for 13 years straight. Because the Turpin family was SO LARGE - even if this girl was kept locked away from her parents, she was most likely socialized through interactions w/ her numerous siblings - because the Turpin children were kept together while abused, locked up within the immediate vicinity of each other. Also, the oldest of the siblings experienced a few years (of their early lives) without SEVERE abuse; they would’ve had “normal” socialization, and most likely taught this to their younger siblings. That’s the only reason why the Turpin children can talk and socialize relatively “normally”.
