She spoke exclusively to ABC Action News about the horrific attack back on February 21, 2017.

She is hiding her face and prefers not to use her name although it was released by police.

She said she still barely sleeps and is still haunted. She is six months pregnant.

She stayed strong through most of the interview and described a morning, she thought only existed in horror movies.

"He went like 'hoom' and I was like 'ow!'," she said making gestures of a knife going into her neck. "And I hold the knife again with my hands and he kept doing like this in my face. Nonstop!  He just wanted to kill me. He wanted me to die."

She is stunned. Largo police said her own step-son Nathan Singhavong even confessed to the crime.

"Everything was yes mom, yes mom," she said. "We had just celebrated his birthday together. I do not understand."

She said he was supposed to start school at Largo High. Instead, according to authorities, the 17-year-old hid in the shower and went after his step-mother with a knife chasing her down in the home they shared in Largo.

"He pushed down on my neck very hard and he went 'wooo' like this and I hold it (the knife). And he do like this 'shoo shoo shoo' (stabbing noises)," she said.

Her husband was out of town and her 12-year-old daughter was hiding in her room. Her elderly parents tried to help her.

"He kicked my father and he fell down on the ground, my father is 85 years old," she said. "I saw blood all over my body and the floor I said I cannot survive."

At that moment, she not only lost hope, but her faith.

"So, I blamed God, why I follow you but why don't you help me?," she cried.

Then out of nowhere, "I said God I am about to die. God I am about to die right now and then all of a sudden in my mind, I heard a sound saying play dead."

She did, through the pain even stopped screaming. But said to her horror the attack was not over.

"He kicked me on the back like a ball. He hit me very very hard with his boot and he hit my like 'boom boom boom'," she said.

While her instinct took over to protect her unborn baby. She heard her own dad, finding strength to fight for her.

"My father said my daughter is dead she is already dead. She doesn't scream anymore and then my father came over with a chair and hit him on the back," she said.

The blow hard enough for Singhavong to drop the knife and for police to arrive after the woman's 12-year-old called 911.

"I think he should go to the prison for the rest of his life," she said.

She is now focused on trying to rebuild her own. For her children's sake.

Even though her beating was so severe, doctors told her her unborn daughter will be ok. She is due in June.

"When I look back God really helped me and protected me he really did,' she said.
