The pregnant woman who was attacked after responding to a Craigslist ad is shown in herFacebook profile photo less than a month before the incident beaming in a rainbow tutu and proudly wearing a “Mommy to Be” sash.

Michelle Wilkins, 26, who police say was stabbed and had her baby stolen, went to high school inGuatemala and studied sustainable development at college in North Carolina, where she sold hand-made pottery, her family confirmed.

“Thanks to everyone for the outpouring of sympathy and support,” the Wilkins family said in a statement released Thursday evening. “Longmont first responders and the United Hospital staff saved our daughter’s 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,” the statement read.

Wilkins was allegedly stabbed by a woman identified by police as Dynel Lane, who police say had posted on Craigslist that she was selling baby clothes.
