Hi

I'm not quite sure what your question is, but it would only be possible to use 'forgotten' if you omit 'at home':
I'm afraid I've forgotten my wallet.

When the location of the forgotten thing is specifically mentioned, you need to use 'leave' instead of 'forget':
I'm afraid I've left my wallet at home.
