Groomer Robert and his wife Melissa have been living in the remote coastal town of Saratogos for six years.
The couple have taken a number of holidays, but it was the last one that came as a big shock to Robert.
“The last time we left was on Christmas Eve, and we had a nice dinner with family and friends,” he said.
“Then, it was like we were living in a dream and I remember thinking, I’ve been living this life for so long.”
I’d never thought that I would have such a dream.
“This is my dream, I was just waiting for it to come true.”
The couple were not planning on taking a break when their baby boy, Noah, was born on June 10.
“We were on a cruise with a couple of friends in Australia, and I was with my wife when we got to Saratogan, and there was a little baby lying in the ocean, and that’s when I knew we were in for a life changing experience,” Mr SaratOGos resident Robert Saratoy said.
Mr SaratOY was on holiday with his wife, Melissa, and their son Noah when the couple got the call that the baby was missing.
“When we got home, there was Noah, but he wasn’t with us,” Mr Sarroy said, speaking from his home in Sarathoga Springs.
“He had been swimming for about an hour or so, and then we saw Noah swimming by and it was just so amazing.”
So, when I found out, I just had to get my baby back.
“Mr SaratoYasmin, a nurse who worked at the Saratozas hospital, said Noah was still in his mother’s arms when they found him on June 17.”
It was pretty traumatic for all of us, we’ve been together for so many years, and just when we thought Noah was safe, he was nowhere to be found,” Ms Sarato said.
She said Noah had been in a sling for about three months and was doing well.”
She has been very strong in supporting him and has had to do the best that she can,” Ms Sarrato said of her mother.”
Her heart is still full of joy.
“Ms Saratoya said Noah’s mother, who is now the baby’s father, said he was grateful to see his son.”
You know, I have a lot of sadness about what has happened, but you know, that’s life, and he’s got a big heart, and it’s all worth it,” Mr Sasato said, his voice breaking.”
What you do in life, is what you’re good at, so he’s definitely got the potential to do really well.
“Mr Sasato added that he was thankful for the support of his family, particularly his wife and son.
