My stepdaughters aunt and uncle bought her a new car.

And I'm really happy for her. Her mother has been a drug addict for years and in and out of rehab so there was no way she was going to be able to do anything like this for her daughter. (Stepdaughters live with their grandmother, this was their choice over living with DH and I.)

DH and I have never been rich and we always knew we would not be able to buy cars for the girls. It sucks, but thats the way it is. Her aunt and uncle have money to spare and they wanted to do this for the girl. No one asked them to.

I do sorta feel bad we aren't able to buy cars for the kids, but oh well. Plenty of people are like us and simply cannot afford stuff like that. We pay child support, I pay for their cell phones, but we can't afford much else.

She seems very happy. She deserves it, she's worked hard in school and is about to graduate.
