Wrong Number

Rarely do these mistakes result in anything more than confusion and embarrassment. But for those brave few who are willing to take a chance, sometimes something special can result.

Deorick Williams was caught by surprise when an unknown couple texted him the exciting news about the newest addition to their family. He responded as pretty much anyone would by congratulating the couple and informing them that hey had contacted the wrong number.

Nothing is stopping us from reaching out and sharing our human experiences with others. We might just be suprsied how they respond.
