Lilly Manning, 19, arrived in Sacramento this week after driving from New York state with her niece, Tatiana, whom she is caring for while her sister Natasha is deployed to Afghanistan. Lilly was the subject of a Bee examination last summer detailing the torture and abuse she suffered at the hands of her adoptive mother and her husband, and her later recovery.
