Baby Jessica raising son, set to collect fund worth $1 million

Midland, Texas _Today is the 20th anniversary since toddler Jessica McClure was rescued from a backyard well in Midland.  She's now a 21-year-old wife and mother.

Chip McClure says his daughter is a wonderful mother, whose dream has always been to be a stay-at-home mom.  She has a one-year-old son, Simon.  But Jessica's quiet existence in Midland could change in three and a-half years.

That's when all the monetary tributes sent to "Baby Jessica'' while the world waited for her safe rescue -- mature into a payment of one million dollars or more.  The trust fund is waiting for Jessica to turn 25. 

A woman who answered the phone at a number listed for Jessica McClure's husband, Daniel Morales, identified herself as Jessica, but told an Associated Press reporter it was a wrong number.  Richardo Morales, Simon's uncle, says Jessica plans to put the money into a fund for her child.
