Strangers visit newborn baby after receiving wrong-number text
A pair of brothers who received a wrong-number text about a baby being born decided to visit the newborn at a Georgia hospital with some gifts.
Deorick Williams and his brother, Dennis got a wrong number text that led them to pay a visit to Bainbridge Hospital to give gifts and take a photo with Mark and Lindsay Lashley's newborn son, Cason Knox.
"We are at the hospital. Having a baby today! She has dilated to between 5-6," the first text message read.
"Congrats lol but I think someone got the wrong number," Dennis Williams texted in response.
Another text soon followed with a picture of the woman -- Mark Lashley's mother -- holding the newborn.
"Well I don't know Y'all but me and the boys will be thru to take picture with the baby," Dennis Williams wrote.
The woman apologized for the mix-up, but Williams said he was amused by the wrong number and wanted to bring some gifts for the baby.
Dennis and Deorick visited the baby and they posed for a photo with the happy couple.
Mark Lashley said his mother thought Dennis Williams' number belonged to his cousin.
He said the men were true to their word and brought gifts for Cason.
"They said, we were the guys who got the wrong text and we just wanted to stop by and give a gift to the baby," Lashley said.
"They brought diapers and bottles and a pacifier. It was very nice of them."
