Katheryn Deprill, a Pennsylvania woman who used to be known as the Burger King baby, has turned to Facebook to try and track down her birth mother who abandoned her in a fast food restaurant's bathroom nearly 30 years ago.

Deprill is now 27 and lives in South Whitehall, Pa., with her husband and three young sons. But her life is a far cry from how it began in the Allentown, Pa., Burger King restroom where she was left on September 15, 1986.

"Someone had heard me crying and they notified the staff and they came in, I was laying there on the floor," she told WFMZ.com.

Deprill was placed in foster care and eventually adopted by a "great" family who gave her "the best childhood." Still, she said, "I feel like there's a piece of me missing."

Now, Deprill is searching for her biological mother with the help of social media. She posted a photo of herself with a sign this week and it's already gotten thousands of shares.

"Looking for my birth mother," Deprill's note reads. "She gave birth to me September 15, 1986. She abandoned me in the Burger King bathroom only hours old, Allentown, Pa. Please help me find her by sharing my post. Maybe she will see this. Thank you."

Deprill said she hopes her birth mother will come forward and realize she doesn’t hold any resentment toward her.

"I really want to see her and just ask her why and see if I have any brothers and sisters and anyone that looks like me," Deprill told WFMZ.com. "We're not coming after you for anything. We're not angry. I want to say thank you for not throwing me away, literally."

"I came to realize, especially now being a mother, it's very hard, things are very expensive and I would guess she just couldn’t give me the life that she wanted, which is why she left me in a warm, public place. I just hope that I can see her and maybe give her a hug," she said.
