Social media users have been delighted by the story of Sydney, a girl who needed an opinion on a dress, but accidentally sent her text to the wrong number.
Instead of being ignored, she ended up receiving huge compliments from a big family of strangers.
With pictures of herself snapped inside a fitting room, Sydney was seeking a friend’s option on a slim black dress she was putting on.
Instead of landing in her friend’s inbox, Sydney’s message was sent to Tony Wood, a real estate agent and father of six from Tennessee, USA.

Sydney got a text back from Tony Wood, that read:
“I believe this message was intended for someone else,” he wrote.
“My wife isn’t home, so I couldn’t get her opinion, but the kids and I think you look stunning in your dress! You should definitely go with that one!”
The message was accompanied by a photo of five of his children giving Syd’s look an enthusiastic two thumbs up.
Sydney’s friend, Mandi Miller, posted the adorable exchange on Twitter and it quickly went viral. The post has since been retweeted 172,000 times and has 690,000 likes.
The viral tweet brought attention to the one child who was missing in that photo, a four-year-old who's battling Leukemia, and was with his mom at the hospital when the picture was taken.
Wood replied back to Miller thanking her because she made his children famous.
Hello! Apparently you have made my children Twitter famous! My 2nd youngest (not pictured, he was at chemo clinic) has a FB page for his fight against Leukemia and one of our Prayer Warriors recognized the children! Btw, my wife agreed that the dress looked great! God Bless!— TriStar Home Team (@TristarHomeTeam) March 9, 2018
