Allentown woman finds birth mother on Facebook

Katheryn Deprill was left in a PA Burger King bathroom just hours after she was born. At age 27, she decided to search for her birth mother on Facebook by posting the picture below and finds her (sorry to spoil it, see link for more details).

The photo was shared more than 30,000 times by Facebook users around the world, and Deprill’s story landed in numerous media outlets. That caught the attention of the woman who abandoned her, and she came forward to attorney John Waldron, who arranged for them to meet. (Rubinkam, M. 2014)
