This dad is a prime example of what parental sacrifice truly is. When he was 16-years-old, this dad restored an 1936 Ford Sedan all on his own, and the car quickly became his most prized possession.
But when he and his wife decided to start a family in 1993, things changed. Their daughter, Stephanie, wanted to go to a seminary, and her dad made the painful decision to sell his beloved car in order to pay for that schooling.
This was undoubtedly an emotional and difficult thing for him to do, but he knew it was the right thing for his daughter.
“My dad talked about this car for as long as I can remember, always saying he would buy it back if he could find it,” Stephanie wrote on YouTube.
In 2013, Stephanie decided to return the favor to her amazing father. She began to search for the 1936 Sedan, inheriting his dream of locating and purchasing the old car.
After months of researching and hunting, Stephanie finally found her dad’s prized possession online. The final purchasing arrangements were made and Stephanie’s entire family came together to pool the necessary funds, which is a truly touching thing. The family had to have the Sedan shipped halfway across the country to get it to dad’s doorstep – but it finally arrived in mint condition.
All that was left to do, naturally, was to surprise dad with the beloved car he hadn’t seen in 21 years.
What a beautiful story of sacrifice, family love, and the truth that kindness can come back around to affect you when you least expect it.
