Pennsylvania woman abandoned as baby uses Facebook to seek mom
A Pennsylvania woman has generated a lot of attention with her attempt to locate her birth mother via a photo she posted to Facebook on March 2.
Katheryn Deprill posted the photo of her holding a sign that reads: “Looking for my birth mother. She gave birth to me September 15th 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’s Facebook post has been shared more than 28,000 times as of Tuesday morning. She has even been interviewed by CNN Headline News’ Nancy Grace.
The 27-year-old woman, who lives outside Allentown with her husband and three children, says she just wants to ask her birth mother some questions, including about her family medical history. She reportedly learned about being abandoned as an infant when she was 12 years old and her sixth-grade teacher assigned her class to research their family trees.
