According to the girl's mother, Sarah Tully, she was overwhelmed when the postman returned the letter.

Narrating how her daughter Sianna ended up writing the letter, Tully said the young girl wanted to celebrate her dad, who passed away when she was just four months old.

On Father's Day, the little girl begged her mother to let her post a letter to him. Tully's daughter asked her where her daddy lives, and she replied:

When the kind postman came across the letter in Leicester, UK, he feared it would be thrown away because it did not have a stamp.

"Obviously, without a stamp or an actual address on it, it would just end up getting thrown away," he said.

He then spoke to his manager, seeking permission to trace the family and return the letter. He posted a photo of the letter on Facebook, and it got thousands of comments.

“I emptied mailbox, and there was a letter in a child's handwriting addressed to their dad in Heaven, Cloud 9. I'm trying to find the parents of the child as I would like to reach out to them,” he wrote in part.

According to the mailman, he recently lost his father, and his heart went out to the child.
