Plenty of girls approaching their sweet 16th birthday throw themselves into planning a party involving fancy dresses and styled hair. But not everyone has such elaborate “coming of age” celebrations. And, for some, it’s the sentimental birthday gifts from family members that mean the most to them.
Indeed, one young woman from Texas will probably never forget a present she was given on her own 16th birthday. Lauren Blank reached that milestone in March 2017; on her big day, moreover, she received something from her grandfather that made her heart melt.
And, to top it all off, the present was something that Blank had never even seen coming. Indeed, it was a total surprise for the teenager. As it turned out, however, her grandad had been planning to deliver such a gift for years.
