Say What Now? Strangers Visit Hospital With Gifts When New Mom Texts Wrong Number After Giving Birth


Deorick Williams found his way into group text about the birth of a baby boy — but he didn’t recognize any of the numbers in the chat. Instead of misleading the participants, he announced that they sent the texts to the wrong person…but the conversation didn’t stop.

Deorick decided he wanted to meet the proud parents and asked if the family wouldn’t mind visitors at Memorial Hospital in Bainbridge, Georgia.

“We have gifts,” he texted the group.


Deorick and his brother brought diapers, pacifiers and baby bottles to the new parents, Mark and Lindsey Lashley. The family welcomed the Williams brothers into their hospital room and seemed touched by the gesture.

“We had a great time,” Williams told ABC News. “I was invited already, so I thought I might as well go. And why not bring gifts?”

A family friend shared a picture of the brothers on Facebook and wrote: “You 2 are great guys and thank you for giving to someone you don’t know!”

We’re glad this story had a happy ending. As crazy as the world is it could have gone totally left.
