Stranger's Reply To Wrong-Number Text About A Dress Changes Family's Life.

Everything happens for a reason, or so they say. Many of us are skeptical about there being some sort of grand design to the universe. But then you hear miraculous stories which alter the way we think, and suddenly, we find hope in the world again. This is the story of Tony Wood from Spring Hill, Tennessee, who got a wrong-number text but decided not to ignore it. Instead, he decided to answer Sydney Uselton, who needed some positive feedback about a dress. What happened next led to a miracle that saved a child's life in the most unexpected way possible.

Uselton had tried on a black, formal gown, but she wasn't 100% sure about whether it was right for her.

She did what most people do these days and took a selfie while she was in the dressing room. Then she sent it through a text to one of her friends. The only thing is that she sent it to the wrong number and ended up reaching someone else.

Wood knew that the young woman certainly needed some feedback on the black gown she picked.

He decided to lend her a hand and reply to the message and he did it with the help of his children. But he hadn't realized that his text response would have a serious impact on the lives of his entire family.

Wood wanted to make sure that Uselton knew that the response wasn't coming from a friend, but that the person who replied wasn't some creep either. But since he couldn't get his wife's opinion, his kids became the fashion judges.

Uselton's friend, Mandi Miller, was touched by the text exchange that she decided to post it on Twitter.

As you can imagine, the text conversation between Wood and Uselton had gone viral because of the cute kids and the way Wood had so graciously offered to help Uselton. But there was one person missing from the photo, Wood's youngest child.
