Her stepdad sold his prized possession to pay for the wedding to her mother. Kristin knew she would repay him one day…and the day had finally come.
Kristin’s mother and stepdad, Dave, shared a connection most people fantasize about. It was clear from the start they were the perfect family.
“My first memories of him are playing Barbie’s with me and reading to me. He coached every softball team I was on and came to every Karate tournament,” Kristen remembered.
After popping the question, Dave was prepared to sell the only thing he ever really owned to pay for the dream wedding Kristen’s mother had always dreamed of.
That was a 1973 Porsche 914, the dream car he had been collecting for years. Kristin still remembered the the ‘glow’ Dave talking about his precious collector’s item. Showing it off to her mother was the highlight of his day.
Instead of spending time rebuilding the engine or ordering new rims, the stepdad prepared the cherished car for sale. Slowly but surely, it was separated into parts. Finally, the big day arrived.
Dave and his bride were married in a beautiful ceremony marking the start of their fairytale life together. After high school graduation, Kristen returned from her deployment with the U.S. Army with a G.I. bill…and a 1973 Porsche 914.
Kristen gave Dave the keys to the precious vehicle. He instantly broke down in tears. Dave was speechless. The final verdict: Kristin deserved the “stepdaughter of the year award,” according to Dave.
