On Tuesday July 31st, we experienced the call that no parents want to receive. We quickly learned that our 8-year old son, Sawyer, had been seriously injured in an unprovoked act of violence at the Apple Valley Waterpark.
The knowledge of how close we came to losing him is the most terrifying experience of our lives. We are grateful to hear his voice, hold him and have the opportunity to tell him we love him once again. All our focus is fixed on the well-being of our children; how our son is recovering and how our daughter is coping.
We are truly overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and sympathy we have received from the Twin Cities area and from all over the country. The prayers and love being shown for our family have given Sawyer the strength he needs to continue to fight for his recovery. Truly, God was and is with our son.
We offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has prayed, encouraged and supported our family. We want to recognize and thank the police, fire department and EMT’s, the bystanders and all the medical personnel who have helped to save our little boy. Lastly, we would like to thank the Ronald McDonald Foundation for their incredibly important services.
In Christ’s Love,
The Warner Family
