YAKIMA, Wash. -- What started as a horrible accident has become an incredible recovery.
The Yakima teen that was hit by a car, is now back home.

"I just woke up in the bed, in the hospital bed, and I didn't know, so I was like, where's my parents," said Ryan Morris.

Ryan doesn't remember the events from the terrible accident that put him in a coma. But for his family, time stood still.

"You always hear about people that have it happen to them and then when it happens to you its kind of, I don't know, it's definitely not something you are ready for even if you think you are," said Ken Morris, Ryan's father.

In a moment, Ken and Michelle thought they had lost everything. Last month they received the dreaded call. Their 15-year-old son was in a horrible accident.

"It makes you think about how you tell your kids you love them more, and hug them more, and be more supportive to them," said Michelle Morris, Ryan's mother.

It's been a long road for the Morris family. Since Ryan was struck by a car on Summit Avenue, he's seen the limits of his own ability.

"I thought I was going to die," said Ryan.

Ryan suffered numerous broken bones including his arm and collar bone.
And having to relearn everything has been a challenging process
Ryan's family stayed by his side the whole time, and is amazed at how quickly he healed.

"We know that the doctors are the tools, but we know the ultimate healer is God," said Ken Morris, Ryan's father.

It's that faith they say that has kept their family strong through the darkest hours.
And it's the reality that every parent could face, that they have now to share.

"Not to take things for granted, that they're going to be there every time you come home cause sometimes they're in the hospital," said Ken Morris, Ryan's father.

Ryan was released from Seattle Children's Hospital this past weekend.
