ALLENTOWN, LEHIGH COUNTY -  A woman who, as a newborn, was abandoned in the bathroom of a Pennsylvania fast-food restaurant says shes found her birth mother.

27-year-old Katheryn Deprill launched a search that gained national attention just three weeks ago.

Deprill posted on her Facebook page a photo in which she held up a sign that said, "Looking for my birth mother.. she abandoned me in the Burger King bathroom only hours old, Allentown PA. Please help me find her by sharing my post."

Her campaign worked, catching the attention of the woman who abandoned her, and she came forward to an attorney who arranged for them to meet.

Deprill still lives in the Allentown area, and says her and her biological mother plan on having a relationship.
