It Was Supposed To Be Their Happiest Day, But Then This Happened In The Parking Lot

For most parents, the birth of a new child is one of the most memorable days of their lives.

Just thinking about that day can leave people overcome with emotion. Leaving the hospital to go home is an exciting moment, or at least it should be. Dalan and Krysta Askew were so excited about bringing their new baby, Penelope Jade, home. When the Oregon couple went out to the parking lot, however, they discovered something horrible had happened.

New dad Dalan had loaded up their car with all the gifts from friends and family. He also installed the new base for their car seat.

When they came back an hour later, their 1990 Subaru Legacy was gone. It had been stolen.

They posted on social media about the theft, but so far no one has come forward. The Askew family says it’s particularly heartbreaking due to the other sentimental items that were inside the car.
