Bronson's Miracle

We thank you forever for your prayers and your faith on behalf of our little family. We can not thank you enough for helping us to call down the healing powers of heaven to fix our broken little boy. We know that Bronson lives today because it is Heavenly Father's will that he be allowed to stand as a testimony of His miraculous power . We hope to make the most of this second chance. There are truly no words that can express gratitude of this magnitude. Just joy... Pure joy!
Love- The Staker Family

Bronson is our hero and our family's favorite celebrity.
His brothers must be so proud of him.
You, Sara, are a wonderful mommy.
How lucky for the world that you happen to be a gifted writer as well.

God is good, indeed.

Beautiful, praise God! I am so glad He led me to pray for your son and to read your blog. Bronson has blessed me, what a sweet joy.

What a wonderful testimony of the power of prayer and faith. A testimony of miracles and that Heavenly Father has a plan for each of us. We are all blessed to have been able to pray for Bronson and have OUR testimonies strenghtened by the things we witnessed because of your trial, your faith and most of all your willingness to share what must be so personal.

Thank you!

HOW ABSOLUTELY FITTING, THAT ON FEBRUARY 14TH, THE DAY OF LOVE, THE MOST LOVED LITTLE BOY IN THE WORLD FOR THE LAST 13 DAYS HAS MADE US ALL CRY AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME OF PURE JOY.

Thank you Sara & Matt, for allowing us into this most precious time of your life, for reminding us of what IS important to us, and for showing the strength and courage you did with your honesty.

I, like thousands of others, sincerely hope you still update us all every now and then on Bronson as he's become apart of so many lives, thoughts and prayers.

To see that little man of yours walking out of the hospital is the sweetest thing I've seen outside my own beautiful daughter.

All the best.

I stumbled upon your story and blog last week through KSL. I too am a Mom of 4 little boys and immediately had heartstrings attached to you and your family. I read every post. Cried with you, laughed with you, and cheered little "B" on. Your faith is inspiring. Your class is amazing. Your family is beautiful, and at home again. Congratulations! What an inspiration your story has been to the rest of us. Now, go enjoy your boy! :)

Nicole said...

What a beautiful video you've put together. Thank you for sharing your story with all of "us". It has changed my life! I too have a little 16 month old and I can only imagine the joy you are experiencing having him home again. Thank you for all the lessons you've allowed me to learn through your experience.
Forever grateful,

My family & I are so excited to hear Bronson is home!! My husband and kids would ask me about him everyday as if we knew him personally. Thank you again for sharing your honest story with us. The fact that you just laid it all out there is so admirable to me. Your family is such an inspiration to our family. We have all been touched by this event and it has definitely strengthened our testimonies of the power of prayer and the power of our Heavenly Father. Lots of love from our family to yours. :)

This is amazing. I am in awe. Miracles do happen and I am beyond grateful that your sweet little guy is doing good and has pulled through this! I also have 4 boys (9 years 5 years 3 years and 1 year) and I just saw a link to this from one of my friends.
I have been crying non stop since I read it, first because of the miracle you have been given, second because I can see how a few seconds could change your life forever. Don't blame your self for what happened to him because I know how easily it could happen to ANY of us moms. Bronson is truly a miracle.... amazing.

Another stranger here from Colorado who has been following your story and praying for your sweet Bronson and family. Thanks for opening up your hearts to share Bronson's story with us. I have a 14 month old son and have hugged him tighter and been more focused when I am with him after following your blog. Thanks for that! The video is so touching--still crying and SO thankful for your miracle! I am thrilled for your family!!

Stephanie said...

So beautiful. Your story will give hope to other families going through their own horrible nightmare.

I will share your beautiful video...

People should remember to ALWAYS have hope.

ALWAYS.

Jessica said...

Bronson's smile is contagious! Thank you for sharing him with the world. May God continue to bless your family!

Beth Bowling Ohio said...

I happened upon your story on the COLES Foundation site and have been following it ever since. You have shown remarkable strength and courage. You have changed the way I look at my children. I follow some Caring Bridge etc sites about children with certain diseases and problems but your story "scared" me the most. I have done the same thing many times and now am more aware that daily events can harm our loved ones as much as the rare illnesses. Thank you for being so blunt and "graphic" in your story, I hope it helped you to get things off your chest as well as those of us reading. Your family is complete and beautiful. Enjoy!

The Queen Vee said...

May we all remember that God loves us all, that he hears our prayers, that he knows our sorrows and joys. That he is continually pouring out blessings on each us. Every child is a miracle, we our thankful that your little miracle has been granted the gift of a longer life here on earth. "Welcome, Welcome Sabbath Morning" and welcome home Sweet Bronson.

Jade Franchina said...

Tears again....but this time tears of complete happiness.
That would have to be the most touching, inspirational, moving video I have ever seen and I wish your entire family a lifetime of joy and happiness.

Thank you for sharing with everyone a very emotional time in your life.

Best wishes.

teresa dunlop photography said...

thank you for letting us into your lives a little bit and sharing such a personal and delicate story. you have helped us all feel closer as children of God and opened our eyes. our Ftaher DOES live and loves us. i think we were all waiting to see what and when He would do what was needed...and in this case we apparently all needed to learn to love one another even if we dont personally know each other. i have prayed for your family numerous times these past few weeks and heard myself saying things like our, "sister and brothers are in need, please bless them." our family is so happy that you get this second chance...and that Bronson gets to livenhis life knowing the tender mercies of Heavenly Father were given to him. xoxox please keep blogging! :)

Kerri said...

I am so grateful for the miracle that has been given to all of you and baby Bronson. You have done a lovely job documenting a terrible and heartbreaking and ultimatly joyous time. I know that there are times that Heavenly Father says no to our heartfelt and desperate prayers, and miracles of other sorts are felt, but what a beautiful and wonderful thing it is when He says yes.

Good luck to all of you as you return to normal life. And again...what a miracle.

That was absolutely amazing. Even though I have seen most of those things already, I was sobbing. I was also so excited to see him blowing that kiss, that I knew I saw, but didn't know Alli had caught it on video. Just beautiful! I am so glad he is back home with his entire loving family to complete the rest of his recovery.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you for sharing your testimony and your precious miracle...this was so touching...my faith has been strengthened so very much....

Seeing all of you with Bronson's doctors and nursers was so touching, how wonderful they are and the love they feel for these precious children that they care for must be absolutely immeasurable.

Bronson is absolutely breathtaking...seeing him running and laughing out of the hospital...what a precious cutie pie he is...a precious miracle.

We are so happy for your beautiful family...words can never express the joy we all feel for you. Your homecoming looked absolutely beautiful...what a precious, precious moment!

Erin Pick said...

Thank You!
My boys came running in to watch little B every time I went to your blog. (alot!) Today was no different. They were singing along and clapping for him as he was walking out, I was crying tears of joy looking at your faces. Pure JOY, what a blessing. Thanks for sharing!

I have been following your story and praying for Bronson since Feb.9th. I am so happy that all of our prayers have been answered. God truly is good and he was with you through all of this. I am glad that you shared this story with the world. I for one have learned from your mistake, and no matter how busy I get, or how distracting life tries to be, I will remember Bronson, and I will not be tempted to look away from what is important. Words cannot express how thankful I am to you for teaching me that lesson. I am so thankful also that that you were able to teach this lesson without losing your son. He is an absolutely amazing little boy, and it is just awesome that he is back home with his loving family.

Jeff and Steph said...

Thank you so much for restoring my perspective this morning. I've been stomping around with a chip on my shoulder, my kids are driving me nuts, and I am grumpy personified.

But I am reminded to savor every moment with my kids. Hug them while I can. Enjoy being together. Thanks.

Happy Valentine's Day I am grateful for the time in which I have had to watch your son a true miracle. I have a 12 month old and I too do leave him in the tub to run into the next room to make the bed. Thank you for the opportunity to strengthen my own testimony and the knowing that I have a lot to improve on. Welcome home and good luck.

bundy family said...

Thank you so much for sharing this testimony of miracles with us. What a journey your family and that sweet little boy have been on these last few weeks. I feel as if I have been on the journey right there with you. With each new post you have made regarding his progress, my testimony was strengthened and I think you so much for that.

You have opened my eyes to the precious moments that I so often miss with my three children. It is so easy to get in the zone of keeping a clean house or whatever else it may be, that I find myself all too often saying "Hold on a second". I am changing that. I want to cherish every moment I have with these sweet children of God.

Thank you again for sharing your journey with us. I will forever remember this amazing miracle.

I hope you have a relaxing day together as a family, you deserve it!

nennermommy said...

I really believe Bronson has more miracles he needs to perform here on earth thats why god could not embrace him yet. More than healing and showing all of us a miracle. I will forever be changed as a mom because of you and Bronson. God I am sure loved him then told him to go make his momma proud she deserves it. I wish you all the love you can give ( I know that won't be hard) It will be amazing to see your family ties become knotted forever. xoxox

Sue said...

You sure had a busy day yesterday, Sara! I knew you'd come up with something spectacular to celebrate Bronson's homecoming; the video is awesome! Lily sat and watched it about 3 times before church this morning. She said her favorite part was when Bronson took off running during OT.

I hope you don't mind, I posted your video on my blog and shared a few thoughts for you and Matt. Love you! Oh, happy day!

Krista said...

I'm not even sure how I came across your blog, but someone had asked for prayers and I checked it out. I read your blog just this past Friday and you have touched my life forever. You have an amazing spirit and faith in God. You have been through a nightmare that no parent ever wishes to even dream, let alone live. I am so happy for your family that you get this "second chance" as you called it. God bless you and your family with health and happiness.

I get all choked up whenever I see your blog. Thank you for sharing your miracle with the world. I am so happy for your miracle boy! And I think it is great how open and honest you were about the whole terrible ordeal, even the parts that were probably humiliating to share. I think it will bring a renewed awareness of both water safety and more importantly the power of God.

Jill said...

This truly is a miracle! I am over joyed for your family!! You have been in my thoughts and prayers ever since I stumbled upon this blog, linked from another one I regularly read.

You and your family have been in my prayers! You are an amazingly strong woman, and I thank you for sharing your story and miracle with the rest of us. EVERY mother (even the best- like you) has walked away from their children while in the tub! We are moms...therefore we multitask! But know that you have touched so many hearts, and saved lives of those who will think twice before walking away! I look forward to hearing about B's progress, and watching him and his brothers!!! :) ~A million thank yous! And forever in my thoughts and prayers!!!

Thank You! Thank you for sharing your story. Thank you for sharing your Faith. Thank you for sharing your heart. Thank you for sharing you pain. Thank you for teaching me about what's important, about faith, about True Love and Joy, about My Savior, and about life. You have blessed my life in ways you will never know. Thank you.

Brandi said...

I found your site through one of my friends on facebook. She was asking for prayer for your family. I first looked at your blog on the day you allowed yourself to take a shower. I was heartbroken for you all and began praying for Bronson and all of you. I missed a few days checking the site(I'd left it on my browser). When I refreshed the page yesterday, my heart soared and tears came to my eyes. From a mom who knows the pain of loosing a child, I am so thankful that you all did not have to know the feeling(even though you came pretty close). Enjoy your boy, and each time you look at his cute little face, remember that God is good! He really answers prayers! Just thought I'd share my heart with you guys. Take care!

Anonymous said...

Ummm, can I just say that every time I read your blog, I have to have a BOX of tissues right next to me!
Bronson is truly a miracle! Your family is so strong and I admire the faith that you have shown. What an example to those around the world that don't share the same faith as you and me!
I believe that there will be many people opening up their hearts and minds to learn more about our faith.
That, right there, is the good that will come out of all of this! (besides having your sweet HEALTHY boy home with you)
I have thanked you before, and I will thank you again for opening your life to the world so that we can be forever touched!
Thank you!

I pray that God will remain to be with your entire family for the days and weeks ahead as you come to grips with everything that has happened. Thank you so much for sharing your story! GOD BLESS YOU!

I cry everytime I come to this blog (which is daily). I cried at the beginning out of pure grief and sorrow for your family. Now I cry with joy and gratitude. What a beautiful end to what could have been so tragic. Thank you for sharing your little man with the world! Heavenly Father is...everything.

Lindsey and Nick said...

What an amazing experience to be able to follow your blog through this trying time in your families life. I have never heard of another boy named Bronson besides my son until I ran across your blog. Instantly I felt I had a connection to your son. He is adorable and such a trooper. I am so happy for your wonderful miracle, Heavenly Father is truly watching over Bronson. What a special little boy. Thank you for sharing your faith and testimony with the rest of us. You don't know how much it has effected the rest of us.. Good luck to your family!!

Mom said...

Michael and I are still in St. George and we do not have the internet at our house in Ivins so I am at his office here checking out the blog and enjoying everything I see.

It is amazing that a week ago it was fast Sunday and we were praying so hard for Bronson and now he is home and even walked down the hallway of the hospital to leave. We love that kid. Thanks for sharing so much with the world, your story is a testimony builder. We love your family.

Laura said...

Sara, STOP IT! Stop making me cry. I was just thinking how Bronson will likely have no/little memory of these two pivotal weeks of his life, I hope that as time passes that this ordeal will become an afterthought for your entire family, but especially for you Sara. I have never met a more loving mother than you, as loving sure, but none MORE loving than you.

I'm sure that you're just soaking in every moment with little Bronson, but I do hope that you'll keep us updated.. I just can't get enough of these updates!

I love how Bronson is rebelling against "The Man" by walking out of the hospital all by himself!

♥HAPPY VALENTINES DAY♥

Heather said...

Matt and Sara, My husband went to scout camps and high school with Matt so when a friend pointed us to your blog in early Feb, we began watching and praying for a miracle. We too have a little boy not much older than Bronson. I cried every time I looked at him. I am so thankful that your family and the rest of us get to experience the joy of his smile again. It is obvious what a loving and wonderful family you are. And I for one am thankful that you were willing to open your lives and your hearts so we could all experience such a faith building miracle. You have blessed so many.

With Love,
Jack, Heather and kids.

Unbelieveable. Incredible. Inspirational. Miraculous.

Could not be happier (although you might guess otherwise from the tears rolling down my face) for you.

You deserve this miracle, Sara. It's so clear you're such a good mom. Thank you for letting us get the blessings that come from serving others. It has been a pleasure and a joy praying for your family and watching the healing powers of the Lord go into action.

I hope you'll keep us updated on little B's recovery. I look forward to seeing what the Lord has in store for this little man!

Sincerely, Amber (Powers)

What an amazing story your sweet little boy and family has to tell. What a sweet little miracle little Bronson is. We have a little miracle baby in our little family as well.

Sara, as I read your entry and watch the beautiful video, I am crying. This time, though, they are tears of joy, not sorrow. I am sure you can relate! I am so happy for you and your family, and for beautiful Baby Bronson. I wish I had the words to express how happy I am for you, and how grateful I am, first to God for His miraculous power, and to you, for allowing us to be a part of all that you went through. I truly admire your courage, bravery, strength, faith, commitment and honesty. Thank you, thank you. Thank you for sharing, and for reminding us of what is important. I am so happy for you and your family. I will continue to pray for a full recovery for Baby B, and for the health of all your family. All the best to you and yours! WELCOME HOME BRONSON! Rachel from Michigan!

Every time I pray, I just keep thanking Heavenly Father for your beautiful miracle. So happy for you guys!

Megan B said...

The video is spectacular. I just loved it. The Lord has truly shown his power through this wonderful little boy. Elder Packer once said "Christ is the Master Healer. What He creates, He can fix." I pray that the Master Healer will continue to bless your family and continue to heal Bronson's body and all of your hearts from this recent trauma. He can dampen the sting because He understands better than anyone what you've been through. "There is no extremity he hasn't visited, no sense of desperation that He has not felt." You guys are amazing. A very Happy Valentine's celebration, indeed. Congrats!

Kelly said...

Amazing!! I love your little man!! And I am so blessed to have been a part of this!! I will continue to pray for you! Hope you are enjoying all your kids @ home!

Robyn said...

I feel like I know you guys and I feel so blessed to have been able to be an outsider looking in on your life.

I am just so, so happy! We have been praying ever since we found out about Bronson. My little boys (2 &4), even last night, asked Jesus to heal Bronson. Praise God for full health and restoration! We watched the video together and my little guys were like "see mom, Jesus hears our prayers and now Bronson is better". I am so thankful that God showed Himself and His heart to my boys through this. And we are overjoyed that Bronson walked out of the hospital :) Love, The Ballantyne family (in Australia)

Jen said...

My goodness! That video was perfect and the tears were flowing. Thank you again for allowing us all to follow your story. The miracle of this all has strengthened my testimony ten fold! You are an amazing family and my heart is fully and I'm so happy and overjoyed for you all!!
