Survived the Press interview...
{Insert BIG sigh of relief...}
They all seemed really nice.
I'd been worried...
Hoping they'd give things the positive spin they deserve.
But they were hoping for a story with a happy ending.
...This place needs one this week.
Thank goodness Bronson is the miracle they were looking for...
The miracle we were all looking for!
Oh, thank you Heavenly Father for granting us a miracle!
.
Sooo...
If you'd like to see our sweet boy on TV,
tune in to Channel 5 News at 6:00. Or Channel 4.
.
Unfortunately, you'll also have to watch me ramble to the cameras,
wearing clothes I dug out from the bottom of my bag.
Clothes I've worn 3 other times this week and slept in twice, by the way.
.
Will someone please DVR it for us?
Bronson will love to see himself on TV.
.
And maybe someday I'll want to roll my eyes at myself on camera.
Gag...
I really hate to be on the wrong side of the camera...
I'd much rather be behind it!

I am glad Bronson is doing so much better that you can think about extra stuff like that, that he is living, a miracle. Blessings to you and yours. I will keep praying.

Again, so happy to see Bronson doing so well. I agree with you I would rather be behind the camera then in front of it to, but you should not worry about that you are a beautiful momma!!!!

The Daniel Family said...

Sara, I'm so glad to see that Bronson has been granted a miracle!! I wish I could see your interview. Will it be online somewhere? We will continue to pray for your little one. I hope you get to take him home very soon!!

Laura said...

Just saw a teaser for the interview on KSL, looks like it will be a POSITIVE piece. But just like everytime I see a picture of your precious Bronson,I cried. I am so grateful to you for allowing me to witness this miracle alongside you.

I have been following Broson's story as a complete strangr and I could tell from the first shots of him that you were a photographer, will you please mention or link to your website? I can't wait to see more.

I am so excited to see Bronson's progress and will be praying for a 100% recovery!

sarah baldwin said...

Wow! Praise God! I have been following your story and praying from MN. Tonight I will give thanks for miracles!

Traci said...

Sara, it was beautiful, you were clear and well spoken and reminded us about what's important! Well done! Channel 5 did a better job than Channel 4. I have them both on my DVR, I'll save them! Love you guys!

Anonymous said...

You did a great job and looked fabulous, regardless of having the most trying week of your life. Both pieces were very nice, channel 5's piece was longer and had more of you in it! They said there was even more on the 10:00 news.

They included what you said about huggin your kids more and not getting distracted by thing around the house which I feel is one of the most important lessons we could all learn.

Tami said...

I am just one of "your" blog followers. You did great on the news, and it is nice to hear about happy endings in this day and age. I still can't look at your blog or Bronsons picture without crying! I still praying for you guys and am so happy things are looking up!

Vanessa said...

Aww you did great, don't be so hard on yourself ;) We are praying for your little son!!

Toni Perkins said...

Sara, the interview is on KSL.com for any who missed it at 6:00. I understand that they will rebroadcast it on the 10:00 News, also. And you were superb, my Dear. You are indeed amazing! I'm sure I speak for many when I say "Thank you so much" for sharing. We love you and yours, and will continue to keep you in our prayers.

KSL did a great job on the story Sara. Thank you for sharing this experience with us all.

Erin said...

Saw you on the news!! I'm one of those strangers that was just captivated by your story. I've really tried to spread the word to my mom friends over the phone and on facebook. I would hate to see someone I love go throught this. Thanks for being brave and sharing your story! It has truly changed my role as a mother, and I know it has touched many.

Erin said...

P.S. My little 2 year old also feels for baby Bronson! She sits by the computer while I read your blog and says with her saddest voice "Baby owies, Baby owies!" So glad his owies are almost gone!

Alli said...

whatever....stop it! you looked beautiful! and it is dvr'ed at home...no worries! :)

Stephanie said...

I missed a day or two of reading your blog and the miracles came POURING down!!! Hallelujah! Our God is amazing! And your little Bronsan is pretty amazing, too! Praying (and will keep on) for complete healing for ALL of you!

Felisha said...

I have following since mid week and I am so glad he is ok! What a miracle baby! He is such a cute kid! Don't listen to what people say about you, you are an amazing mother (i don't know you but I just know you are). I wrote on my blog (right after reading yours story) about hugging your kids tighter and not worrying about the small things in life, spending more time with your kids. It really touched my heart and I hope it gives a positive, inspiring hope for others. Much love and prayers for your family.

Shmonae said...

Hahaha! Channel 4 and 5 were going to interview me and dodged out for a "better story"!! I am SO glad they did because Bronson IS a great story, and I was so scared to see what channel 2 aired after they interviewed me. There is no question in my mind why the didn't air the actual interview and just showed pictures of the kids at the school making hearts for the ball on Saturday!! I was stuttering, laughing, and crying..they I blurted out "CAN you use THAT on TV?!" I couldn't help it :)
I am so sad I missed your interview...

Link to story online. Great story with a wonderful ending. Bronson looked wonderful considering the last few days! Still praying for continued healing.

Sheila said...

I know you don't know me but I just wanted to say how brave you were to talk to the public about your story. It is something that all moms have done and will make me think twice about leaving the room for a few seconds. I am so happy that your sweet baby is doing better. What a blessing. I hope all goes well and please please know that you looked absolutely beautiful on the news... so no worries there!

nora.lakehurst said...

You and I have a story about our babies. I almost lost my now five year old to SIDS *so they thought* when he was two months old. I had to throw out my nice beautiful bed spread to have the memory out of my head of finding him in my room on my bed still and lifeless.
But what a joy to find him happy and away two days later and taking him home. I was very lucky to have found him. Your little man will come around and be with your family happy running around and making you smile! I am so glad that you are posting and letting us know what is going on. I have great faith that it will all be great in the end.

Josh and Kandice said...

The story was great. I love the little growls Bronson was making during your interview, so cute! I'm so happy your baby is awake and doing so well. I've become obsessed with your blog and watching Bronson's progress. I cry every time I see his smiling face and those videos of "Do As I'm Doing" are priceless. I'm so grateful to Heavenly Father all of our prayers were answered for you and Bronson. What a miracle baby. And BTW, you looked great!

Rebecca said...

I don't know if you'll even see this, with all of the comments left on your blog I'm sure you are way too overwhelmed to take them all in, but I just have to tell you thank you from the bottom of my heart. I work part time, so the chores are always piling up around me and I often feel overwhelmed. Too many times my children have called for my attention to only hear "in a minute!", whether it be playing a game, reading a story, singing a song or just needing to be held. I've wept for your poor sweet Bronson and your story has absolutely changed my life.

You are an amazing mother and a woman of great faith. Thank you for posting your thoughts and feelings through this nightmare. Too many times experiences like yours are left in the dark and covered up rather than speaking out to remind us to take more time with our families.

Much love and may prayers coming from Jacksonville, Florida!

By the way - you look amazing in the video...seriously beautiful!

I'm Erin Leigh said...

just tuned in and so thankful for a happy ending! I'll also be praying!

Wow-What an awesome, faith-building story. Bless you for your faith and strength. Bless you for sharing your tender story with the rest of us and touching our lives even though we've never met. I'll pray for your sweet family and hope all will be well. Thank you!

TimeKillsHeartsLikeMine said...

once again, you don't know me. But I just caught up on everything I missed last night and today, and I'm soooooo happy!!!! I've been crying with joy for about half an hour! He's progressing soooooo fast!! He's not letting anything hold him back, huh? I'm just about as happy as if it were my son, honestly. I'm so so so happy for you guys and we'll continue to pray for you, and I'm thinking about you all day long every day, and your sweet little boy! We love you guys so much, even tho we've never met you, and you are a total inspiration! Thank you!!!

Hi - a friend had a link on her blog to yours. My daughter is at PCMC as well (room 3017). She is 4 weeks old and fighting RSV. I read your blog and I am glad your little boy is doing so well. What a miracle. It gives me hope that we both are in the same circumstances as mothers watching our little ones overcome these challenges. What's interesting is I think I saw you in the cafeteria this evening with your son. I recognized him from the pictures, but I wasn't sure about you. Anyway, I hope for the best for your family. Take Care - and feel free to visit...our daughter will be here awhile.

Congratulations!!!! We are so excited for you and your family. I had left a comment about a week ago about our son who drowned, died and then came back... just in case you hadn't thought about this already, we have a birthday for our son on April 24th (the day he came to this earth for the 2nd time). I guess you could have a week and a half celebration :). Just a thought. Again, so happy for you.

Best wishes,

Zachary said...

That was really cool. Just watched it :D

The Martone Memories said...

He is absolutly precious! I'm so glad to hear he is doing better. I have my own baby Bronson and I've held him much tighter this week. Since I heard your story in a RS lesson on Sunday I have read your blog, bawled, and prayed daily for your family. I'm amazed at your strength and the gift of Heavenly Father's miracles.

Brittany said...

I watched you on the 10 o'clock news and you looked beautiful. So happy for Bronson! Love his cutest smile!!!

Just watched you on the news! You looked great and I can't believe how well Bronson is doing! He must have a special mission here on earth that he still needs to be here for!
He truly is a miracle and I believe that your story has and will help so many families in SO MANY ways!
Thank you for your faith and for your story!

Thank you sara for sharing this! I have 4 little ones of my own--my youngest is a 16 month old boy--same age as B. Your story has really hit home and made me re-evaluate my life and priorities. I live in orem and would love to meet you someday. Thank you for inspiring me to be better! Bronson--you are the man!

Kristen said...

I just came across your blog tonight. I cried streams of tears as I read your words. And then when I watched the clip on KSL.com, and I saw you, I thought I knew she would be that beautiful, just like her words. I am so happy for Bronson's recovery, what a beautiful little boy. I felt true joy as I saw him sitting up and read about his recovery.

Debi said...

so happy to hear the good news :)

Sonora said...

You looked wonderful on the interview and did a great job. It makes me so happy to see him doing so well. I have been saying prayers of thanks since I read the good news. This story has made me more aware as a mother, has helped me to be more patient with my children, and really value every moment. It has also furthered my testimony of prayer and how mindful and wonderful our heavenly father is. Thank you so much for sharing.

You don't know me, but I found your blog a few days ago, and today I was SO SO happy for you when I read your updates that he is doing so much better! I have a two-year-old boy, and your story just broke my heart - so glad it has a happy ending!! Your boy is adorable.

You did a wonderful job! Bronson is SO cute...he is doing AWESOME and he looks so good!! What a precious miracle...we are so so so happy for your beautiful family!!

We just saw the interview on the website. Bronson looks AMAZING, you look AMAZING! Just like the newscaster said, such a beautiful story and so beautifully told. You truly are an incredible writer. You and Bronson have touch thousands of people all over the world. Love you guys and LOVE that Bronson will be coming home soon!

So, so, so happy for you and your family. What a story that we can all learn so much from: the grace and mercy and goodness of God; prayer really works; being in the moment. You are a wonderful mother and woman. Thank you for sharing your story. Our prayers continue to be on your behalf.

Sid King said...

I just saw your story on channel 5 tonight. Truly a miracle and a story of great faith. It jogged my memory of a story I read about the faith of another Staker, my great-great-great-grandfather Nathan Staker that settled in Mount Pleasant about 1862.

The story is about Nathan Staker's little 18 month old girl Eliza that drowned and was brought back to life by Elder Orson Hyde. The story came out of an LDS magazine publication from many years ago. I don't know if you are descendants, but the story has many similarities, mainly great faith.

Please contact me if you would like a copy.

It does my heart good to see stories like yours. Have miracles ceased, I think not. I pray for Bronson's continued speedy recovery.

Sid

Stephanie said...

I have been following your story and saw you on the news tonight. I hope you don't mind I put your story up on my blog. I can't hold back the tears when I read about your sweet boy. I truly believe in the power of the priesthood and this is just one more testament that it is true. Thank you so much for sharing your story with the world, you are a wonderful mother.

Emily said...

I just caught this post so I missed your interview. DANG! I bet you looked beautiful and I'm sure Bronson was the shining star of the interview. Yay for happy endings!

Sadly I missed the news tonight but I watched it on KSL. You looked beautiful and Bronson was adorable as ever! Your blog has touched so many people's lives and I am sure that the story tonight got the word out to even more people. What an amazing journey with a happy ending!

Lesley Meyer said...

Sara,
I am just another stranger that has been following your precious little one and am so happy to hear of his progress. As a mother of 2 young ones, a 3 yr old boy and a 16 month old girl (born 10/2/08) just a few days before Bronson, I can so relate to your story and want to thank you so much for sharing. It has brought so many tears to my eyes and I want you to know that after reading of your story, I am now enrolling both myself and my husband in a CPR class. I also wanted to bring to your attention this quote. And it is YOUR quote from your blog entry on 2/10/07. Call it mothers intuition, but you must have known he was going to be a little miracle, in more ways than one. "It is a little (okay, a LOT!) faster than we'd thought, but we really are so excited and are feeling very blessed. You can not convince me that it is not our own little miracle... there is just no other explanation... (you'll have to trust us on that one)!"
God Bless you and your amazing family.

Sara - you look GORGEOUS, but more importantly... Bronson looks A-MA-ZING! You got through the interview cool, calm, and collected - such grace and dignity. You are such a strong woman. I would have been a mess! :) I love seeing the sunshine in Bronson's eyes!!! Can't wait for you to take him home!

Whitney said...

I'm a blog follower via Sandy L. I just watched the interview online. You did great! And I cannot even believe how GREAT Bronson looks!!! Truly a miracle!! Enjoy your second chance. :) What an unbelieveably special little spirit he is.

He *will* do amazing things in this life... I am sure of it.

Jimmy and Chelo said...

hello! I'm just another person who out of boredom was blog stalking and came across a link to read a miracle, so I read it...and almost a few hours later I am done reading your family's sad, sad, yet happy story!! I truly am at a loss for words to somehow express in writing how much my heart aches for you! I sort of consider myself lucky coming across your blog when so many things about Bronson are positive, unbelievable, and inspiring because I can tell you if I would have come across earlier I would have gone each day wondering & worrying about a family with whom I have no relationship with except for your thoughts and feelings you've expressed here.
I am 23 years old, married for almost two years (this june!) and NO KIDS (yet..) While reading your blog without stopping almost ignoring my husband because I found myself consumed in reading post after post...I was in tears!
To Bronson's Mom: thank you for giving me a HUGE perspective on life, family and most importantly the gospel!!! You have left a lasting impression in my heart, and may one day have saved my future babys life! Good Luck. Bronson looks simply amazing!

Sherrie said...

Dear Staker family, Your story is amazing. I have sat at my computer for hours reading about your little Bronson! Tears in my eyes reading what your family has gone through. Our Heavenly Father definetly has blessed your little family. Your story hits my heart all too well. I have a little girl that is just Bronson's age along with 3 other kids. I have made that same mistake all to often. Thanks so much for that sweet reminder that nothing is more important that your little ones!

Your Family will be in our prayers. I hope that he makes a Full recovery to continue on his journey that Heavenly Father so gave him.

Hugs to you all!

I have been watching the blog and catching up regularly. I saw the TV story tonight and was thrilled at the miracle of getting your son back. There are many things that we do not yet understand but this I know that God lives, that faith in action works, prayers are answered and that our Heavenly Father loves your family very much, may He continue to bless and guide you as you now move through life together having experienced an absolute miracle. Prayers have been many support profuse and how blessed we are to have the knowledge we do. While I do not know you personally and came in contact with this experience through a family member of mine my faith has been strengthened in many ways. God bless you all.

You did a fantastic job and your beautiful!!!! I loved his smile right at the end... what a LOve!!!!

Jennifer Quinn said...

Just watched the link that someone was kind enough to post -- thank you!

Sara -- you were gracious and grateful in your interview. A true beauty.

Looks like Bronson has quite a purpose in life to invoke such a response from all corners of the world.

May the Lord continue to bless and keep you.

I never heard your story until I saw it posted on KSL.com... When I heard it and read your blog, I cried!!! There have been so many times that I have left my children unattended in the bathtub for a few seconds to answer the phone, grab their clean clothes, etc... and never thought anything of it! Now, after reading your story, that will not happen ever again!!! I cried my eyes out reading your blog... My thoughts and prayers go out to your son, you and the rest of your family!

Natalie and Travis said...

Sara and Matt- I'm so stoked for you right now!! Thank you for enduring this trial in order to touch the lives of so many- maybe that was the whole point? When do you get to take your precious boy home again!?

Debbie said...

I just wanted to let you know that I found your blog through my mom and I couldn't just read and not let you know how much I appreciate you sharing your life. Your courage, love and faith are beautiful. Please keep sharing and updating us on your family. God Bless!

Kelli Rye said...

Hi there! I have so been thinking about your sweet family the past two weeks! I found your blog through a friend. I'm a teacher and I've shared your story with all of my coworkers who are also moms. We are all moved, touched, and educated by your story. We would like to know the address of the hospital you are staying at so that we can send you a "thinking about you" gift from our students and us. Would that be okay? Would you be able to post the address where we can send them? We are so happy for your miracle. :)

We watched your story on the news last night - press interviews can be hard. We are so happy for your miracle and absolutely thrilled that you will be able to take your little boy home. Best wishes for Bronson. Love, Nathan and Brenda Toone

Jensen said...

You don't know me, but I came across a link to your blog on a friends facebook account. I was deeply touched by not only your beautiful words, but your strong faith. What a beautiful miracle your son truly is! I wanted to tell you to not be hard on yourself . . . we all make mistakes because we are all human. When my son was 15 months old he too was in an accident. We were camping and I was busy cleaning up dinner with a friend, our husbands had gone to get a boat fixed. Our little ones were playing around the campsite and my baby tripped and fell into the fire pit that my friend had just put in hot coals from our dutch oven. He had 3rd degree burns on the entire left hand side of his face and surface burns on his hands and foot. Immediately, I began praying as we sat under the water, both of us crying, waiting for the ambulance to find us. Miraculously, we were taken to a hospital that has the best burn center in the state (we live in MO). My son was given blessings and the best medical attention. I felt so guilty that I had caused this to happen to my child. That I had ruined the rest of his life and his beautiful face. But, God heard the prayers of his faithful children. Not only was my son healed completely, but my heart was healed too and I felt so much love. Today, he is a vibrant 7 year old with absolutely NO scars on his face. The only scars are on the inside of his hand and foot where he sustained only surface burns and they are tiny! Know, that strangers in another state are praying for you and the continued healing for your entire family.

Adrianne said...

So overjoyed for you. You don't know us but we have thought about you and prayed for you. I have shared your story with many people and every day Ihave held my children tighter the way I should have been all along. Thanks so much for sharing your miracle.

Amber said...

I just watched your interview! you did great! no rambeling, and you looked cute, no worries about what you were wearing! I hope you continue to blog about your family daily, you have inspired me to go to church more often, and it has strengthend my testimony. Bronson is so beautiful!

Sara,
Thank you for sharing your story. I have a little one the same age as Bronson and so many tears I have shed in your behalf. What a miracle. What a time to reflect on the tesitmony I have of the Savior and the miracles that are still there today. I wish you the best in all things. What a wonderful day it has been! Love to you even though you have no clue who I might be! Oh and P.S. your outfit looked great!

Carol Davis said...

I'm almost betting that you will never read this comment because there are so many but I just wanted you to know that I am praying for your family. I have a little boy that just turned one on Feb. 2, 2010. When I read your blog it made be think of him and how much I love him. I'm so grateful that your family has been so blessed in this time of need. It is so nice to have a husband that lives worthy and can give a priesthood bless whenever he is called upon. You truly have a miracle!

Emmy said...

Glad they were nice and looking for a good story. Especially at this time of love, it is just what is needed.

Sue said...

Here is the link to Bronson's TV debut:

You did great, Sara, I totally couldn't tell you'd worn that sweater 3 times already! Bronson was such a little ham, charming the camera with his infectious smile!

Liz said...

You looked beautiful and your sweater is amazing. Never apologize for your looks or present condition. You are beautiful and it radiates from your soul and through your eyes and your voice. You husband sounds like the most excited little boy at Christmas.
We prayed for your miracle and we are glad that God blessed your family and especially Bronson. Go home, hug, love and heal. ♥♥♥♥♥

gorgeous!

TayTay said...

Amazing how negative people can be from something positive. So glad that you are able to hold that sweet little boy alive. Pray for the family in Layton that is going to bury two sweet little precious girls from a mistake. Who is to blame? No one, things happen. Bless you all.

Jill said...

Hi, I'm a follower who found you through Natalie's blog. I'm am so happy to see Bronson doing so well. My heart has been aching these past few weeks first for Natalie and then for you and your family. I am thrilled to see things turning out so well for Bronson.

On a completely superficial note. I caught your interview on KSL last night and thought to myself "what a cute outfit she has on" and then I read this post this morning. For what it is worth, I thought you looked darling and apparently the ginormous bed hid the "i've worn this 3 times this week" aspect of the outfit!

Kristy A said...

I dont know you but oh how your story has touched me. Lastnight I sat and read your entire blog for an hour and a half sobbing most of the time and rejoicing` as your family received such an amazing blessing. Your testimony of our heavenly father and his son Jesus Christ touched me so much and just listening to you made me want to be a better person, mother, and daughter. I am a mother of 2 girls, 4 yrs old and 17months and I too have walked away from them in the tub on multiple occasions thinking I just need to grab one thing, or I will be right back. Never again, never again. I don't believe I could be as strong as you. I pray for your little guy and each time I hug my little girls (with out any tubes, so easily accessible) I will think of you and your B and my heart will lean towards our father in heaven asking him to continue to bless your family. Thank you for being so courageous and admirable. God bless you and your sweet, adorable family.

I am so happy for you and your family! I have been watching your story unfold and praying for a full recovery - and I am so thrilled your prayers were answered! On Easter Sunday 2001, my 15 month old drowned in my parents' pool. After CPR and frantic praying, our Lord gave her back to us that day, and I'm eternally grateful. She is a gorgeous, healthy 10 year old now! The nightmares can take a while to fade, though. Stay strong!

Saw you on the news. You looked beautiful. I was amazed at how great you looked after spending so much time in the hospital. I cried tears of joy for you and your family. I've been a silent follower.

Congratulations on your miracle. It is amazing and very needed in our world today. God Lives.

You have had a miracle given to you that anyone would die to have. If you had dandruff and thown-up on clothes that should not have mattered! I doubt anyone even thought a single thing about your appearance, everybody's eyes were on your little miracle angel!:) We are so happy he's ok!

You did great on your interview. We actually saw it at 5. Thanks for your inspiring story and I'm glad that we could help out and pray for you and your family. I have bawled on every post.

My husband and I said how beautiful you looked on t.v. and that the reporters were true to the story. I felt so privileged to be able to follow your story from beginning to end. To be able to have my daughters and my husband and myself be able to have a tiny fraction of a part of your miracle through our prayers, fasting, and spreading your blog. You will always hold a place in our hearts Sara. I adore you and your family.
Thank you a thousand times over for letting us share this experience with you. I will keep checking for updates on B's progress.
You are a light to the world.
