ROSEVILLE, CA - A Roseville mother has been reunited with some very important pictures, thanks to the kindness of another area mother and the incredible power of social media.

Beth Foreman's heart sank when she thought she lost precious family photos of her brand-new baby girl meeting her big brother for the very first time.

"As a mom, they are the most important things in your life, so all those memories I thought I had lost," explained Foreman.

They slipped out her wallet back in May, only to be found by a Rocklin mother.

"I was shopping at Wal-mart and I saw it on the ground and at first I hesitated and then something urged me to pick it up," said Stacy Speck.

But it wasn't pictures that caught her eye, it was a SIM card for a cellphone.

Foreman said, "It was small! I was amazed someone spotted it on the ground and picked it up."

But Speck had no way of reading the card. She held onto it for five long months. Then five days ago she used a friend's phone to download the pictures.

"All these photos popped up of Beth and her baby and hospital pictures and videos of the newborn baby and it kind of touched my heart because I have a baby girl and a boy and so I was, like, I have to find a way to get this back to her," said Speck.

But how was she going to find this mystery mom?

"I put it on Facebook and thought nobody is going to see it, everybody is just going to keep scrolling."

But oh, was Speck wrong!

She posted the picture around 1 o'clock Monday afternoon.

By 8:30 that night, more than 6,000 people had shared it and Foreman got the good news.

"Just one mutual friend. That's all it took," said the moms.

The post has been shared more than 36,000 times all over the globe.

"I'm flooded with 'friend' requests, Facebook messages from people all across the world thanking me for just being generous and doing the right thing," said Speck.

The women are not only friends online now, but in life and they have quite the story to share with their little ones.

"I'm just so grateful because her small act of kindness meant the world to me," said Foreman.
