When Twitter user Jaileene Andrade dialed what she thought was her mom's number, she couldn't know just how much her words would mean to the distraught woman who picked up the phone.
According to Andrade's tweet, she said, "Hey, Mom" when the woman answered, but the lady on the other end wasn't her mom. Later, she got a text message from the same number she had accidentally called with a heartbreaking message.
"This is the lady you thought was your mom," the text began.
"I just wanted to let you know your wrong number was a great Christmas gift for me. I lost my only daughter around the holidays. So hearing you say, 'Hey, Mom,' made me feel so good. And you have a Merry Christmas."
