A Youngstown family is thankful to have their baby girl home from the Akron Children's Burn unit.

Kiarra Jackson, Aubree's mother, said that Aubree is progressing quickly. Her burns appear to be the worst on her ears and hands. Jackson said doctors told her Aubree is healing quickly.

McCormick was injured on July 4th when, according to Aubree's grandmother, Carol McCormick, two young boys kicked a firework and it exploded onto the porch where they were sitting.

Aubree's parents, Thomas McCormick and Kiarra Jackson rushed her to Akron Children's in Boardman, where she was then air-lifted to the hospital in Akron where she was treated until her discharge.
