Family of 12-year-old stabbing victim says she's on a 'miraculous road to recovery'

The family of a 12-year-old girl who was stabbed 19 times last month says she is making steady physical and emotional progress.

Family spokesman Steve Lyons says the girl can walk but her movement is limited by breathing problems.

The girl's family says in a statement that she recently went to see a Disney movie with her father and that she is on a "miraculous road to recovery."

Lyons didn't provide a long-term prognosis, but voiced optimism the victim will fully recover.

Court documents indicate that two 12-year-old classmates stabbed the girl in a plan to curry favor with an online horror fiction character, Slender Man. They are charged in adult court with attempted homicide. The Associated Press isn't naming them because their cases could end up in juvenile court.
