wow! this is such an amazing story...I know you will use this trial in the community somehow to teach awareness to others on water safety....already your blog has done this in so many ways.
enjoy your own bed tonight! and I bet this is the ending you hoped for, but wasn't sure of....and I am sooo glad your family has been blessed with this miracle.

Tonya Peterson said...

We have been praying so hard for your family! I am so glad to hear this wonderful piece of news! God bless you and try to not continually beat yourself up over what happened. We all make mistakes, and thank God yours turned out for the best. You have also inspired a nation of Mothers to stop what we are doing and just appreciate our children. So thank you for that. Sometimes we forget what is really important. So I am getting off this dang computer and giving my 2 year old girl the biggest hug and kiss ever! XOXO!

I believe you are right when you say that words can not describe this situation. I am in awe and have followed since before you knew that all would end ok. I am SO grateful to see this miracle happen that I don't even have the words. He is AMAZING. . .I hope to keep getting updates of his progress at home as he returns to his normal routine!

This is a true miracle as well as a PSA for all of us "busy" mom's. I have often left my little ones in the bath to carry dirty clothes to the hamper, and gather pj's. Not anymore. Thank you for sharing your story, and God bless you and your family!

Charity said...

I don't know you...
You don't know me...
But we both know of a Father that loves your little boy more than either one of us could ever imagine.
What a miracle you have there. What a precious gift your family has been given.
Thank you for sharing your story with complete strangers- cause in the end? Were not really strangers are we...

So incredibly amazing. Enjoy having that sweet little miracle home with you. Thank you for sharing your story with all of us other busy moms. Makes me rethink what really is important...that never-ending to-do list or keeping a closer eye on my precious babies. You are so brave to share your story with all of us, and I am personally so happy that you did. Love and prayers will continue to be with your family! So very happy for Bronson's healing.

Staker Family - Our families testimony has been strengthened so much through this trial of your faith. Thank you for sharing, thank you for letting us be apart of this life changing experience. I know with every fiber of my being that your life long worthiness, and the worthiness and righteousness of your entire extended families have called down this miracle. I will be a more attentive mother because of your willingness to share this experience. I poured out my heart to my Heavenly Father in gratitude for his constantly watching over my children when I have not been as attentitve as I should have. I have learned life turns on a dime and I need to be more focused on what is most important. I love you guys! Julianne

amazing - a true miracle!!

I think it's very important that people understand that Bronson's miracle occurred because it was God's will, not because of people's prayers and fasting. Just this week we learned of two sisters also at Primary Children's that passed away due to a tragic pesticide poisoning. I am sure there were just as many prayers and fasting sent to heaven in their behalf, but for reasons unknown to all of us, the answer in this case was no. Not because their prayers or fasting were not accepted by God, but because a God that knows all things had a different plan for them. The hope and faith that we live with is that someday all of it will make sense, even though in this life it doesn't. Every day people survive miraculous things while others perish. The miracles do not lay in who escapes death at that time, but in how the fasting and prayers change the people who are offering them. Events such as these bring people together for a common good, and it makes all of us think deeper of our purpose and belief system. It brings us closer to our Heavenly Father and his Son, our Savior. The miracle of your story as well as the family of the two sister's story is the same. It has made thousands of people stop what they were doing and look to God and there is always power in that.

I found your blog midway through this crisis and it touched me. I prayed harder, thought more, and loved my family greater. I'm so glad that this outcome is so great for you....treasure it always. My heart also goes out to the other family this week and all those not in the public view that have tasted the bitterness of tragedy without the same outcome. The peace is that Heavenly Father will bring miracles of a different kind to them in the comfort he gives to those that suffer such things. May God bless everyone and may we always be sensitive to the fact that prayers are always answered, but according to HIS will.

Thrilled for you! Congrats on going home.

Rachael said...

Wow, look at him! I've been following Bronson's story and I'm so glad you're taking him home! Thank God.

After a week of checking this blog daily, I've got to chime in. This is truly miraculous! I've seen so many other tragic cases that ended in heartache and despair. I stare at that picture of him in astonishment and wonder. Bronson's story almost requires one to acknowledge that miracles do happen! Thank you for your effort in sharing all of this information and perspective. I'm amazed and happy for you.

I'm NOT a VOLCANO! said...

I'd just like to say that YES! IT WAS GODS WILL!!! And maybe he just needed those sweet girls at home with HIM instead of here on earth. Maybe their mission was done!!! But there is a huge huge thing called FAITH, and why pray or fast at all if God doesn't care about them? HE DOES! And those prayers were ANSWERED!!! And THIS AMAZING little boy has more to do. YES! Everything is in GODS hands. But sometimes, things happen solely so that WE will practice OUR faith.

I don't even know you or your family, Sarah, but I prayed, and I felt the spirit of our Heavenly Father. I KNEW he'd be great! I KNEW our Father had everything under control!

It doesn't matter what people will say, because I was in your situation once, and people said and will say horrible, hurtful things (don't ask me why, because it seems to me that takes such enegry to be so hateful, and shared joy is DOUBLE joy!) but YOU always remember that WE are on your side. We back you up 100%

Joanne said...

I found your story through KSL and just finished reading through everything. What a strong little guy you have! I'm thrilled that you get to go home. Thank you for helping ME to realize I need to be more attentive with my children. Your words have truly changed me. I was very touched when I realized that he was born the same day (a year later) as my daughter and the same day as her cousin. Enjoy the celebration at home!

Anita Johnson said...

We have never met, just found your blog through a link. We praise God for your miracle and will continue to pray for complete healing. Thank you for sharing so openly about your horrible accident, as well as your faith in God. He is a miracle! God bless.

TARA WARTHEN MADSEN said...

Sara - soooo happy you're taking him home!!! You will, once again, be a super-busy mom... but the masses will love seeing updates of Bronson once in a while... (Hint, hint). Love you guys - thank you for strengthening my faith. I love what "Anonymous" wrote... Bronson's recovery was absolutely according to our Heavenly Father's will. But, no doubt, He listened to the THOUSANDS of prayers here on earth. My mother calls it, "Storming the Heavens!" (PS - you should be receiving a package from our family this week. ENJOY)

Rhonda said...

a perfect miracle. i am thrilled to see him standing there by himself, smiling. praise God!

A Lil Story (Bilslands) said...

I just heard about your story this morning, but I am saying a prayer for you and your family... It has brought tears to my eyes! I know the feelings of helplessness all too well, and there is no worse feeling when it comes to your child.

Thank you for sharing your story honestly and openly and I am so glad for you and your family to have your little boy safely in your arms!

God bless! Lily

I am so happy that you get to bring your baby boy home. I hope that you still keep us updated on his progress though your blog!

Caragirl said...

Wow...is all I can say! I came across your blog last weekend, and spent at least an hour reading your story. That evening I knelt down with my 2 children for evening prayers and told them about the sweet baby Bronson who was fighting for his life. I am so grateful that through the miracle of prayer and a loving Heavenly Fsther, you are bringing your baby home!!! Bless you, for touching our lives and giving us the opportunity to pray and see the amazing outcome of this miracle. Thank you and enjoy your happy family!

Amen to what anonymous said about 20 comments up:)
God has a plan for each of us and i am SOOOOO happy this was Bronsons plan. For those people who have to suffer dealing with death, i continue to pray EVERY day for you to find hope, peace, happiness. And to realize God still loves you and is blessing you in other ways.

Taylor and Jana said...

What an adorable little guy. This picture made me giggle out loud. He is a total stud and I am so happy for this amazing miracle. I want to just give him a big squeeze he is so sweet!!!

Anonymous said...

Bronson - you are a miracle. I have fallen in love with you and your family reading the blog right from the beginning of this ordeal. Prayed and fasted for you last Sunday along with a family fast for my great grandson. You make my heart sing. Go home now and grow!

Jill said...

YAHOO!!!I can't believe he is already coming home! It really was a true miracle. So so happy for you guys. :)

LeAnn said...

Our family has been following your story after a fellow missionary of Bronson's Grandpa posted your blog. Thank you for sharing your heartache and triumphs with us. My 3 year old saw this picture and said, "I'm so glad he's better". We have shed tears with you and are so happy for you and your family.

So adorable! So happy for you! Yeah you guys get to go home!!!!!!!

Keddington Chronicles said...

I saw your story on the news last night. I had already started reading your blog. I am so happy for your "second chance". I had my now 7 year old daughter fall out her bedroom window when she was 2. Although her prognosis of recovery manifested quicker than in your situation, I have felt the guilt (I was making lunch when it happened), and I also know of the feeling of uncertainity, as well as the spiritual gratitude felt at the opportunity that Heavenly Father gave me to keep my little one here on earth with her family. I thought of your situation this morning, hugged my little 7 year old and told her "Thank You for being O.K. whe you fell out the window". I am thankful for the spiritual reminder your story is to me. Enjoy your sweet boys.

The Starkers said...

Wow, I'm so happy and relieved to see this!!! How amazing! My prayers will continue to include Bronson.

Manda said...

I am SO Glad to see that he is a miracle baby! He's going to have one hell of a story to tell when he gets older for sure. He's such a cutie, that smile is worth more than words can tell I'm sure.

((HUGS)) :)

Carmen said...

Amazing! SImply amazing. God is so good!

LivingstonClan said...

Just to add to all that everyone else has said--I found your blog about a week ago--ode to blog hopping! I cried so hard--I had a horribly similar experience with my daighter when she was 11 months, and it still breaks my heart to think about it. When I saw you on the news last night, and heard you describe the moment when you found him and picked him up, I knew exactly what you meant. I am so happy for you and your family. What a sweet little boy he is! And your reminder to all of us to stop the worrying about the silly things, and taking time to just BE with our children is great! Thank you for sharing your story.

Natalie said...

Awesome!!!!!!!!!

Amber said...

Congrats! Everyone is sent here for a reason. This must be Bronsons... to remind parents that anything can happen to anyone, and that miracles are real, and to always keep believing. Bronson will probably go on to do something amazing! A spokesman of some sort...or he will use this as a great pick up line for the young ladies to be interested in him! haha

Ams said...

SO stinkin' cute!!!

The Benites Family said...

Wahoo!!! We are so happy for Bronson and your family. As a nurse who doesn't see many miracles, this has given me renewed hope! Thank you for sharing.

Jen the BlogMom said...

YAY!!! What a gift that he's up and moving! What a miracle. Your story has been a word of warning to my heart. Last night I took my plate of dinner with me to the bathroom while my 2 yo daughter took her bath. No WAY was I going back to the kitchen to get it. God is doing a work through you. Many, many prayers for you.

Yancey Family said...

Seriously amazing! Your story is so touching. Thanks for sharing. I also have four boys and two have had horrible colds this week and wanted nothing else but to be held. My house is a wreck but I'm just going to hold them instead of sitting them in front of the TV. Your story is a huge reminder to me. Life can change in an instant.

The Gang said...

Many Congratulations. Congrats on having a such a beautiful family, Congrats on having such an amazing strong boy, Congrats on having unwavering faith, Congrats for pulling through this in an awesome way and inspiring other Moms. This was a painful experience yet such a happy ending. What better way to inform others, inspire others, and show the kindness and wonderment of our Heavenly Father. I can feel the spirit even way over here! :)

M&N said...

What an amazing miracle! I am so greatful that you shared this with the world. I look forward to seeing how the rest of your life goes with your little miracle at home.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for sharing such a miraculous story with the world! Although we've never met, your little Bronson has touched my heart and your story has reminded me that nothing is more important when my children are in the bath. You often think, "it won't happen to me" until it does. Praise God for this mighty miracle!

Trana Family said...

I am so happy for your family! A friend of mine showed me your site and I have read ever since. I have a son the same age as Bronson. He is my only child.... My world rises and sets on this little man. Thank you for sharing your personal struggles, heartache and amazement! I am not a very religious person, yet I have prayed everyday for Bronson. I think of you and Bronson everyday. I try to be super mom and wife. After reading your story I sit longer and play more with my son. I am so happy for your family. Enjoy your family!

Kellene Maynard said...

Praise GOD! I am so happy for you all! Miracles!!!

Jess said...

Oh Sara, I am clapping and saying, "Good job, Bronson! What a big boy!" like only a mother of a toddler can! he he he he :)

I agree with the many mothers who have thanked you for your bravery in sharing what happened so honestly. Every mother knows that MOMS MAKE MISTAKES. Lots of them. Not all of our mistakes are so visible or memorable to the public, but none of us want anyone to know what we've done wrong no matter how small. And thank you so much for being so open with your faith and prayers and emotions (even when they weren't positive . . . no one would have believed you never once had a down time. And it gave others the opportunity to give service to you. Thanks to Ian, the day nurse, who picked you up off the floor and carried you to Matt at one of your lowest moments.).

This event has united a vast number of people in prayer and hope for Bronson's recovery. It brought home "a mighty change of heart and ACTIONS" in how we as parents value our own children and to treasure each and every moment with them. And Bronson's recovery has shown the world that miracles can and do happen every day.

Thank you God, for washing so many of us with a renewed hope, strengthened faith, and joy for the loved ones and miracles in our lives.

Jaci said...

Awesome news!!

Kathleen said...

My mom (Karen Reid) just called to give me the latest update and we just both cried for how happy we are for you. My little girl (2) refused to take a nap this afternoon and as I was running out of patience, I thought of you and Bronson. Instead of getting angry I rocked her and sang her to sleep, something I haven't done in over a year. I found myself in tears with gratitude for her. Our God IS a God of Miracles! Bronson does still have work on this earth and thankfully he has a family and friends with enough faith to keep him here to finish it. Oh I am just so happy for you ALL! My mom said there are balloons all up the street and I wish we lived closer so that I could come and breath in some of the miraculous air with you all. Best wishes!

sepa said...

amazing! so happy for bronson and the entire staker family. God's continued blessings be upon all of you.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful child and your story with us! He is such a blessing from God!!!

Michelle said...

You don't know me, but I heard of your story and cried for/with you and prayed for you and Bronson and now hearing the news that he is going home with you just gave me the chills. I am so happy for your family and know that God is truly in the business of answering prayers. Thank you for sharing the hardest thing you will probably ever go through with complete strangers. Bronson is doing missionary work already by strengthening my testimony (which is WEAK btw) as I am sure of so many others. He truly is a gift from God.

Robert and Janet said...

thank you for sharing this most precious experience with the world! I know it will help some other family some day to be more attentive. You are truly an example of faith and I appreciate being able to know your family. I'm so happy that Bronson is doing so well. good luck to you all!

Jenny Bay said...

Wow, that is amazing! What a miracle boy :)

Even though I don't know your family I am so amazingly happy for you! I can't stop thinking about you getting to take your adorable son home with you and the joy you must feel.
Thank you for sharing your story and allowing others to learn from something that could happen to any Mom- even a great Mom. You seem like a wonderful Mom to your boys.
I prayed so much for little Bronson.

Yay! That is so wonderful!!! His shirt couldn't be more appropriate. He is one loved little man. I loved what you said about forgiveness. Those little people are so perfect and so sweet. I am truly thankful you will have him back in your home. Enjoy! Please keep us posted as we have come to love your family as our own. (Don't feel obligated to do so, just when you have time if you can! :)

Welcome home Bronson and Sara!!!

B said...

I don't know when I have cried so much, first tears of sorrow, now tears of joy. I will forever be indebted to Dr. Nelson and Natalie for removing my heart-wall and inherited trapped emotions. Could really feel The Holy One as prayers were offered up on a daily basis for this special little boy who shares the same birthday as me. I believe this little boy has a special mission to fulfill.

Brittanie said...

I am so happy!!! This is amazing news. I'm so glad that you are home and he's doing so well! Truly an amazing miracle.

andrea said...

Praise God. The miracle of your son is just what I needed this week, to remind me of His mercies. I pray God allows you to show mercy on yourself as well. I am every day impressed by all that moms do and juggle...all at once. The love you show your family is unmistakeable. I know your sons feel that every day. That is priceless. Thank you for sharing your story.

I've read your blog since this event happened(found it through Natalie Norton) What an amazing outcome. . .words can't really express that adequately. I'm sure you feel that more than anyone right now. I was a nurse on the NTU and to be honest never saw an outcome like this with an injury like his. God is miraculous and has a special plan for each of us doesn't He? What an amazing woman and mom you are. Thanks for your example and unending faith. You have inspired me to be better in my own life. Wishing your family endless love and blessings.

Jenny Bracken said...

I was talking to my mom this morning and telling her what happened to Bronson. You really have touched soooo many with your story :) My youngest is 21 months and i never thought about the fact that he knows how to turn on the water in our jet tub. Also if he found a way to get into the tub i know he wouldnt be able to get out on his own. THANK YOU for sharing your story. Lots of Love from this MoMmY of three boys....AND WAY TO GO BRONSON :)

A friend of mine told me about your blog, so I had to come check it out. I have 3 children of my own, and I bawled as I read your account of what happened. I'm so glad to hear that your little Bronson is finally able to go home. The power of prayer is amazing, and God proves that to us every single day.

What a beautiful boy! I have been following your story, like so many others, and am so touched by the faith and hope you have had throughout this experience. I don't think I could have been as courageous and strong, but I'm so happy to see the payoff that has come about because of your faithfulness. I'm so happy for you and your family. You are exactly the kind of family that no one would ever wish this upon, but the only family that could make it through something this hard and remain so strong. Your family is such a wonderful example of faith. I hope you write a book! This story has touched so many lives and has been such a testimony of faith. Like so many people have prayed for sweet Bronson, you have helped so many find their humility, get on their knees and plead with dear father in heaven to spare a boy they've never met. That's inspiring!

Jodi Gallagher said...

I am so thrilled for you and your family, especially Bronson! I bawled reading your blog this morning and my 11 year old son was in tears also. Thank you for sharing your story with us. It really puts life in perspective! Life is so fragile. Kids are the greatest gifts we have and I am so happy everything turned out o.k for you!

Sabrina said...

God is Great! Bronson is a very fortunate and strong little man! Hallelujah for his recovery!

kimbob said...

I have been amazed to read your blog and hear of the miracles that have happened to your beautiful family! I was so surprised to see this thing on Facebook pop up for "Prayers for Bronson" it got me curious, then as I checked out your blog I was even more sad to see that I know you! You were my photographer for my bridal and wedding pictures! You have touched many lives through your experience and glad you're able to stay so strong with the comfort of the Holy Ghost! Thank you!

Deseri said...

You don’t know me, but many tears of sadness and joy have been shed here in this southern part of Arizona for your Bronson and your family. Bronson has been in our prayers for over a week and we feel privileged to witness such a wonderful miracle! I appreciate so much your willingness to share this tragedy that we might all learn from this. We live in an area where water tragedies happen too often, and your story will always remind me to be more careful. My testimony of the power of prayer, of the love and mercy of our Heavenly Father has been strengthened. Your faith has inspired me to be a better mom and a better person and to hug my kids a little longer from now on!

Bezzant said...

You are right...there are absolutely no words to describe this...so crazy...I'm a stranger to you...but I'm a speech therapist who has worked with many kids with anoxic brain injuries...and NEVER have I seen a recovery like this...the twinkle in his eyes..the spring in his step...UNREAL...MAGICAL...MIRACULOUS....God has obviously forgiven you, I pray that you can forgive yourself...we have ALL been distracted...we have ALL walked away from our kids "for a quick minute"....you went from being one of the unlucky...to the luckiest mommy in the world...what I wouldn't do to hug that little boy...and I don't even know him!!!!!!! Please PLEASE keep updating this after you go home...as we have all felt a part of your family through your tragedy and miracle!! GOD BLESS YOU and THANK YOU for sharing your story!!!

Amy said...

Sara, I have been following your blog and each day I have shed tears of fear and joy. I have fallen in love with this little guy and I am so happy that this story has a happy ending and that he fought thru this incredible battle. I have 4 boys that are just about the same ages as yours. Thank YOU for sharing this journey with us, as hard as it must have been. You are an amazing woman and Bronson is lucky to have you. I promise YOU that this could have happened to any of US. I have hugged my little ones tighter this week because of you and Bronson. Good luck to you and your amazing lil' man and the rest of the gang. Much love, Amy Hawkes

Absolutelywhyaard said...

I would say this is magic, and it is, but 'there but for the grace of God go I.' What a miracle - a true miracle! He has much to accomplish on this earth! God bless! I am sure many more beautiful things are yet to come to pass! Amen!

Finally what I've been waiting to hear! No words to express how incredibly happy I am for you and your family! Your boys get you back, you get your own home and the family will be complete again! I am so happy to have been witness to the amazing miracles of this story. I know that as you get back to life, the blogs will most likely be in the back of your mind, but you and your family will forever be in my heart! Amazing! God bless you and Matt and your amazing family!

Nicole Guerra said...

WOW! He is amazing! I have been following your story like a stalker for the past week and I am so filled with joy for you guys :) I pray that you will forgive yourself and move forward with your beautiful family......just 6 days ago I got distracted in a conversation with a friend and lost track of my little 2 year old. I found him in the parking lot alone wondering around trying to open up car doors. I felt horrible with all the "what if" thoughts but also grateful that he wasn't hit by a car or worse. Obviously my experience was not nearly as horrific as yours but we all get distracted as mothers at some point, especially with the more children we have, and you have one more than me! I love the quote by Maya Angelou: "You did then what you knew how to do and when you knew better... you did better!" When we make mistakes all the Lord asks of us is to do better next time :) We continue to pray for your family as you heal from this traumatic experience.

Bj and Christie said...

Like many other families I do not personally know you but your story has touched my heart. Tears poured down my face when I read about you little one. I work as an RN at PCMC and I know how difficult these situations can be. Thank you for your willingness to share your story, my life has been changed for the better. It is so wonderful to know he is going home with his mommy and daddy! Thank you for your post about choosing faith over fear. Last june my second little boy was born with several significant birth defects. I cannot explain how your words helped heal my heart. Thank you Thank you. Even during your darkest hours you were able to reach out and help someone. God bless you and your sweet familiy.

Thanks again so much for sharing your experience.

I am so happy for your sweet family!! You are probally feeling like the luckiest & most blessed family in the world right now! Thank you for telling your story on your blog and on the news. I think it is so important for people to see how important it is to pay attention. I am one of those moms who has walked away from my children for short periods while they were bathing. Thank you for opening my eyes. I will never make that mistake again! I know heavenly father loves you, and that he cares deeply for you. He knows that you are strong, and could learn a lot, and help teach other through you! Thank you for your voice!

The.Marcellus.Family said...

I won't say who, but I'm sure YOU know, there is a comment above that made me angry. I bawled and I am trying my hardest to not go off and talk horrible about the lady who decided to type down her frustrations to you. You have enough on your plate. It is crazy to me that people have that kind of hardness in their heart.

I want you to know that I ADORE your blogging, I adore what you and your family is capable of. What a blessing you have now walking around again. The picture made smile big time. I I LOVE the look on his face.Thank the lord for the priesthood:)

Have a relaxing day at home:)

I am a Nikken Wellness Consultant and got an email from Bronson's Grandpa and requested prayer...it was then I started reading your blog.....I would wake up each morning and first thing I would do would be turn on the computer, read the update and then pray. Thank you for being so transparent...in a world that is trying to keep God out of everything!

Mandy said...

AMAZING! God through Bronson is so amazing!!!

MV said...

I really HOPE you DON'T read ANY Negative comments people might leave you. The fact of the matter is your son is alive and God is good no matter what.

I am so incredibly blessed to even know that this little boy is still alive. I may not know you, but I can tell your heart is huge for your children. It's written all through this blog. It make me sad that people would question anything you are saying or doing.

Either way, bathe in the blessing of life. Your little boy is alive and well!! That's so awesome, and all that matter at this point. :)

What a smile! After going through what he's been though, he looks like he can take on the world! :o) Congrats and best wishes!

Laura said...

Love the shirt! I hope someday when little Bronson is old enough to understand you'll show him these blog entries so that he'll be able to see just how loved he truly is and how many people, people like me that he'll likely never know, we're praying with you and crying with you..I can truly say that I have been forever changed reading this Blog and sharing this journey alongside you. Thank you for being so brave in sharing this story.
