Last year, Wanda Dench accidentally invited a stranger to Thanksgiving dinner by texting the wrong number. The grandmother thought she was texting her grandson, but reached Jamal Hinton instead. The polite teen asked if he could still get a plate and she was happy to have him come eat turkey with her family last year.
So this year, Dench invited him again and 18-year-old Hinton accepted. “How could I say no?" Hinton says. "She's like a second grandma."
Dench says she wanted to get to know him better this year and they all enjoyed a more low-key holiday so they could do that. "We told him he's invited every year and I will reach out every time. He said he'd love to come," Dench says. "He is our extended adopted grandson."
