May 30 -- Niki Taylor is internationally known as a supermodel. But for the past 13 months, she's been concentrating on being a super mom as she recuperates from devastating injuries suffered in a near-fatal car accident.

The accident left Taylor, 26, fighting for her life with just a 1 in 10 chance of survival. Now, 41 operations later, she is making progress.

"I'm just so thankful right now that I have legs. And that I have arms, and that God gave me another day to wake up and see my kids," Taylor told ABCNEWS' Charles Gibson in her first TV interview since the accident. "I am so grateful for that right now."
