The Good News: Text Message Mix-Up About New Baby, Strangers Come to Visit [PHOTOS]
"Our phones have been going berserk. I didn't realize how big it was until we got a message from someone in Africa telling us congratulations."
Mark and Lindsey Lashley welcomed their first child, a baby boy, into the world in Bainbridge, Georgia over the weekend. Lindsey's mom sent out a group text about the birth, but included a wrong number.
"My mom sent a group message and she attached my cousin's cell phone number, but my cousin had changed her number, and that's how the wrong number deal happened," Mark Lashley told TODAY. "She was so excited about us having a baby, she thought she was talking to my cousin."
The phone number actually belonged to a man named Dennis Williams, but instead of ignoring it, he replied.
Dennis and his brother Deorick showed up at the hospital with gifts: diapers, bottles and a pacifier. And my heart just melted into a million pieces.
