Smart told PEOPLE in November 2017 that her children and family were the most important things in her life.

“My children have brought so much happiness and joy. To me, they’re the very definition of love,” she said.

Over 15 years ago, Smart wondered if a normal life and motherhood would ever be possible after she was kidnapped from her bedroom late one summer’s night in 2002 and brutalized by her captors for nine months before being rescued.

In the years since her ordeal, Smart has reclaimed her life as an inspirational speaker, author and advocate.

“I feel so fortunate that I was able to come through this unscarred. I want to tell other people, ‘Don’t give up. Miracles do happen,’” Smart told PEOPLE in 2008. “I’m not sorry this happened to me anymore, because it made me grow up,” she said.
