SBS Survivors: Lily Smth, Idaho News in Boise, Idaho reports on Lily Smith. Link to article and video.

Her story is testimony to the ability of life to endure against all odds, and an apt story to consider at the end of SBS Awareness Week 2009.

A month ago, Lily was allegedly shaken by her mother's 18 year old boyfriend, and was not expected to survive.

However, she's returned home, blind and partially paralyzed, just a week before her first birthday.

It will likely be a bittersweet celebration.

According to the news article, her mother and grandmother will be working to increase awareness of Shaken Baby Syndrome. Let's hope Lily will be able to join them and tell her story for years to come.
