When her parents walked out and saw the baby in her arms, they too started talking with Light about the infant, and also about her trying to buy a car.
Light told the family that she fosters six children.
Immediately, the couple wanted to help. They had already traded in the car they owned, worth $10,000, and were getting ready to leave in a new car. But that didn’t matter.
The man turned to Light and said, “I want to give you my car and still buy the new car.”
“So we did the whole deal over and all the paperwork," said Steve Rayman of Steve Rayman Chevrolet. "And these folks just gave the customer their trade-in for free."
But even after that, Rayman said he had a gut feeling he also needed to do something for Light.
He felt for Light, because of her situation and having to pay for everything else, including a title ad valorem tax, emission, tags and plates, before she could drive the car home with her baby.
So Rayman decided to pay for all of that personally.
“It was such an incredible gesture from someone that didn't ever lay eyes on this person before but due to circumstance wanted to help," Rayman said. "It was fantastic. The least I could do would be to pay for all the other things to help this lady that does so much for kids like this and it broke my heart."
Steve Rayman Chevrolet has set up a GoFundMe account for those who would like to donate. Steve Rayman Chevrolet said those unable to donate money can drop off or mail what you wish for the children at the dealership.
