Wilkins, 26, underwent surgery and is expected to recover after the bizarre attack. The baby died.
Wilkins and her family released a statement, thanking the public for their support.
"Thanks to everyone for the outpouring of sympathy and support. Longmont first responders and the United Hospital staff saved our daughters life for which we will always be grateful. We grieve for the many victims of this senseless attack, but mostly for a precious child whose life was ended before she had a chance to live. Finally, we hope to have additional information tomorrow for those who have generously offered to support Michelle's recovery."
The woman who allegedly attacked Wilkins, Dynel Lane, is being held on a $2 million bond. Lane had a Colorado nurses’ aide license, according to reports. Police are looking for other women who may have responded to the Craigslist ad.
