wo months ago, a family thought their baby girl's life would end.

Today, they're thankful for the progress she's made and want to help ensure that what happened to her doesn't happen to other children.

Miley White was severely abused and shaken in October. Her grandmother Joann Otten received a call one day from her son-in-law Gary Hansen, Miley's father, telling her something was wrong with Miley.

"Her father was tending her that day and called me at my work and told me Miley was choking," Otten said. "And when I got there, he was holding a lifeless baby."

Miley was flown from the family's home in Manti to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City, and for several days doctors were unsure if she would live.

"We thought that she would die," Otten said.

Miley lost one-fourth of her brain function, and the hemorrhaging has left her legally blind.
