Couple Accidentally Texts Strangers About Newborn, Strangers Show Up To Congratulate Them At Hospital

What a sweet story… 

I thought I’d break up the monotony a little with this one.

These guys are the good guys and the world needs more people like them. I’m happy to help this kind of news go viral.

Check out this heartwarming story of two families coming together over the birth of a newborn, posted on People Magazine. 

Basically, the two families didn’t know each other from Adam’s apple and a text mixup ended with them meeting at the hospital. The strangers even came bearing gifts for the sweet newborn. Nice!

Humanity still does exist.

Couple accidentally texts strangers about newborn, strangers show up to congratulate them at hospital


A texting mix-up over a newborn resulted in a heartwarming moment between strangers.

Dennis Williams received a text on Saturday, March 19, informing him that a couple was having a baby.

“We are at the hospital. Having a baby today!” the text read, followed by, “She has dilated to between 5-6.”

Deorick and his brother Dennis wrote back:

“Congrats lol but I think someone got the wrong number”

But that text went unheeded, and soon enough, the two received a picture of the newborn, to which Dennis responded:

“Well I don’t know y’all but me and the boys will be thru to take picture with the baby”

The new parents on the other end of the line realized their mistake and apologized, but the Williams insisted on showing up with gifts.

The family, Lindsey and Mark Knox and their newborn son Cason, later posted on Facebook about the whole thing themselves, writing:

“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! If we all only had this kind of a heart.”
