A Santa Rosa, California, woman had her wallet returned by a 10-year-old boy — complete with an adorable note that quickly went viral.

Taylor Sloan said she lost her wallet while leaving a Supercross Live biking event in Oakland.

"I had one of those wallets that doubles as a mini-purse," she said.

"It probably should have been inside something, but I didn't want to carry much, so I just had it in my back pocket."  Sloan, 22, said she thinks the wallet fell out while she was sitting down.

Fortunately for the young woman, the wallet ended up in the hands of 10-year-old Nasim Lawrence, who mailed it to the address printed on Sloan's I.D.

"My name is Nasim Lawrence and I am 10 years old," Lawrence wrote in a letter that accompanied the wallet.

"I found your wallet on the ground at the supercross event in Oakland. I know how it feels to lose something and I wanted to make sure you got your wallet back. Hopefully, I have made you smile. I am glad I found it instead of some bad person who would steal from you. You look like a very nice person who does nice things for people so I wanted to do something nice for you."

Sloan posted a photo of the note to Facebook, and it quickly went viral. The post eventually made its way back to Nasim.

"His school principal came up to him and said, 'You're famous!'" Sloan said. His mother then found out, and she added Sloan on social media.

"She sent me a friend request, and we wrote back and forth in the comments," Sloan said.  "I knew he must have come from a cool family to have done something so kind."

Sloan subsequently wrote a letter back to Nasim, and included candy and a $20 reward.

The incident came after another case in England, in which a man had his wallet returned to him 35 years after losing it.
