Left in Burger King bathroom as baby, Pennsylvania woman searches for mom

Posted: Updated:

(WBFF) -- A Pennsylvania woman is searching for her birth mother after she was left in a restaurant bathroom 27 years ago.

Katheryn Deprill of South Whitehall Township, Penn. was found as a newborn in the bathroom of a Burger King in Allentown on September 15, 1986. The now 27-year-old woman posted a plea on Facebook this Sunday in hopes of finding her birth mother. By Tuesday it had been shared over 6,000 times.

"Someone had heard me crying and they notified the staff and they came in, I was laying there on the floor," Katheryn said. She was put into foster care with Brenda Hollis' family who ended up adopting her.

Katheryn, who is now married with three sons, says she initiated the search to answer some questions.

"I'm not looking to replace my brothers and sisters now or my family, my mom and dad, cause it was great, we had the best childhood," Katheryn said. "I think it's just kind of fun, like there's so many questions to be asked and it's just, I am so excited about it."

She says she'd like to find her biological mother for a number of reasons, including learning her medical history. She says she is not angry.

"I want to say thank you for not throwing me away, literally," Katheryn said. "If she was a young girl I would hope that we could be friends…I just hope that I can see her and maybe give her a hug."
