Olivia Smith's miracle recovery

Two Sundays ago, 21-month-old Olivia Smith fell from her chair, lodging a colored pencil through her eye socket that penetrated about 5 1/2 inches into her brain, nearly reaching the back of the skull. But a freak accident that could have ended in the worst way has resulted in what some are calling a miracle.
