Lindsey and Mark Knox of Georgia, said that they are touched by the kindness of strangers who brought them gifts to the hospital.

Dennis Williams, 21, received a text, informing him that the couple was having a baby. “We are in the hospital. Having a baby today,” the text read, followed by “She has dilated to 5-6.”

Williams replied: “Congratulations, but I think someone has the wrong number.”

The text message came from Teresa Lashley. She did not realize that she was texting a stranger as part of her family group when her daughter-in-law Lindsey, 26, was in labor.

However, he soon received a picture of the newborn baby named Cason Knox. He then replied: “Well, I do not know you, but me and the boys will be there to take pictures with the baby.”

That is when the new parents and the other family members realized the mistake and apologized, but Williams came over to the hospital in Bainbridge, along with his brother Deorick and gifts.

Lashley thanked the Williams brothers via Facebook and wrote: “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! If we all only had this kind of a heart.”
