Krystal Preston, a single mom from Nevada, was in complete shock after her 13-year-old son, William Rabillo, gifted her a car. She was shocked as she never expected such a grand gift from such young boy.
Krystal posted the heartwarming story on her Facebook page, sharing how her son surprised her with a car.
“I have no words right now that can express how I am feeling at this moment. I’m in complete shock… The last couple weeks have literally been hell filled with so many tears, anger, confusion and heart ache. Today I got the shock of my life…”
William is only 13, but he already considers himself the man of the family. He is tired of watching his mother struggle, so he often does yard and house work for people in his community to earn a little extra money for his family.
After watching a YouTube video of people gifting their mom a car, William immediately began setting his plan in motion. “I saw on YouTube where people get their mom a car and then surprise her with it,” William said. “I wanted to do that.”
“As some of you may know my son William, who is a lawn mowing, yard cleaning, money making machine. Well my son had a job today that he had to go do and so I allowed him to go assuming it was like any other time. Well this time was different. Very different.”
“William came home and said, ‘Mom I bought you a car’.
I of course laughed and told him ‘Ya, right!’
He said, ‘No mom I’m so serious I bought you a car. Come on we have to go.’
I’m at this point confused and skeptical and I said, ‘Go where?’
He said, ‘With this lady.’
And much to my surprise I go in my front yard and OMG there is a woman standing there and as William said she was giving us a ride.
William jumps in the car so I’m like ok?? This is some kind of joke right. No one speaks really…. So… as I’m still thinking at this point still a joke. We pull up to this house and William says, ‘Mom that’s your car.’
I completely lost it. I started balling my eyes out… I am speechless my 13-year-old son bought me a car.”
Rabillo told KOLO-TV in an interview that he got the idea to buy his mom a car when he saw a woman selling her 1999 Toyota Metro on Facebook. He reached out to the woman and offered to give her his Xbox and do some yard work in exchange for the car.
After some negotiation, William’s quest soon became reality. The seller accepted the offer and they were able to come to a deal. “It was really cheap so I asked her if I could trade it or earn it, and at first she said no and after she thought about it, then she said yes,” William said.
“He did some work for this woman and that was his payment that he worked out with her. And here I thought it was a joke… Nope I was handed the keys and paperwork to the car and I’m freaking out but so in shock like OMG this is happening right now. So, we got into the car it started right up and off we went.”
“I am so proud of my son. He is such a good kid. He may have his days but OMG what 13-year-old kid do you know that buys his mom a car… William I love you son and thank you. You have such a big heart and I love you.”
