This 20-year-old woman raising all five of her younger siblings just received a huge gift from the suburban Orlando sheriff’s office: a brand-new car 🚗 For the past three years, Samantha Rodriquez (second from right ) has been in charge of feeding and clothing her siblings, now ages 5 to 17, following their parents’ deaths. When the community around Orange County, Florida, heard about the family, people wanted to help. The family didn’t have a car, so the sheriff’s department arranged to surprise Rodriguez with her very own Nissan Versa. "When they told me the car is for us, I remember thinking, 'They just took away all these worries and stresses.'" she told CNN. "It was such a big weight off my shoulder and will help so much."

A 20 year old playing a mothers role can't be easy. God bless her.

That was a wonderful gesture but they all can’t fit in that! Come on and give them something bigger @nissan @nissanusa She already has to struggle and worry not only about herself but these children that she’s going to have to finish raising. She needs some help. Maybe we should ask @theellenshow she has the biggest ❤️ there is!
