The embarrassing blunder of sending text messages to the wrong number resulted in an interesting series of events during the birth of a newborn baby.
Two brothers were mistakenly included in a family group text detailing a woman’s labor. “We are at the hospital. Having a baby today! She has dilated to between 5-6," the first text read.
"Congrats lol but I think someone got the wrong number," one of the brothers replied, just before receiving a picture of the infant.
The other brother responded to the photo with, “Well I don't know y'all but me and the boys will be thru to take picture with the baby.”
Once the sender of the texts realized they included strangers in the thread, they apologized for the error but the brothers insisted on going to the hospital to meet the baby anyway.
"Nah that's ok, what's the room number? Bainbridge Hospital right? We have gifts," one of the brothers said.
Sure enough, the brothers — Deorick and Dennis Williams — arrived at Bainbridge Hospital in Georgia bearing gifts. They even took a “family” photo with the parents Lindsey and Mark and their newborn son, Carson Knox.
"What a blessing these two guys were to our family. They were so sweet and kind to do this! You two are great guys and thank you for giving to someone you didn't know!" read a Facebook post that explained the bizarre situation. "If we all only had this kind of a heart."
Most people would have alerted the couple to the mix-up and asked to be removed from the text thread. Other people would also likely become agitated by receiving the flood of messages, but the Williams brothers made light of it with their humorous responses and took it a step further by going out of their way to welcome the new baby into the world.
The Williams brothers’ kindness has officially restored our faith in humanity.
