The 12-year-old victim, who has not been identified because of her age, was said to have nearly died from her wounds but has since been released from hospital and her parents have released new details about her recovery.
"She continues to amaze us in her ability to persevere and move forward – taking one day at a time," they said in a statement their family spokesman Stephen Lyons shared with ABC News today. "Much of our strength comes from knowing that there is so much 'good' coming from so many people, and we continue to witness this firsthand from the compassion given to our little girl from around the world."
"Both the mother, father, little girl and her brother are working with professionals to not only deal with the little girl's physical injuries but her emotional ones as well," Lyons said. "They are so thankful for the support for their medical bills. That's why the GoFundMe campaign is so important and special to this family."
"The preliminary hearing won't take place for at least 30 days, and probably even later than that."
