Stranger decides to ‘bless’ couple after maternity ward text mix-up
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A Florida man had the absolute best response to a texting mix-up.
Dennis Williams received a group text over the weekend with a big announcement from a stranger.
“We are at the hospital. Having a baby today! She has dilated to between 5-6,” the stranger wrote.
Dennis congratulated the family and then let the sender know he was not the person they were trying to reach.
“Congrats lol but I think someone got the wrong number,” Dennis replied.
When a woman sent another text with a picture of her holding the baby, Dennis decided he was going to make the most of the situation.
“Well I don’t know Yall but me and the boys will be thru to take picture with the baby,” Dennis wrote.
Dennis and his brother, Deorick, bought some gifts and went to the hospital to congratulate the new parents in person.
The brothers ended up taking a picture with the mother, the father, and baby Cason.
The family then took to Facebook to talk about the wonderful surprise.
“I accidentally text a message about Mark and Lindsey having a baby to a number I had in my phone for someone else which now belongs to Mr. Dennis Williams and he and his brother came by to visit us and bought the baby a gift! What a blessing these two guys were to our family. They were so sweet and kind to do this! You 2 are great guys and thank you for giving to someone you didn’t know! Many blessing I pray for you. I think his brother was Derrius Williams. Cason Knox, Lindsey, & Mark Lashley thanks you. Please share this with anyone you know and hopefully these guys will see. If we all only had this kind of heart.
Deorick posted screenshots of the texts and the family’s Facebook post on his personal Facebook page.
His post has since gone viral, receiving more than 167,000 shares.
