Rape victim reunited with daughter she refused to abort after leaving her at Burger King as a newborn!

Burger King Baby Mother

A woman who took to facebook to find her birth mother has been successful. Saynsumthn previously reported on Katheryn Deprill, the “Burger King baby,” who finally met her mom Monday afternoon.

WFMZ reports that the two women were reunited at 1:45 p.m. March 24, 2014 in the office of attorney John Waldron in Allentown. Their meeting left Deprill “super excited — it’s better than what I thought.” “They immediately hugged,” said Waldron, who arranged the meeting at the request of Deprill’s birth mother. “It was exciting, emotional, dramatic.” “It was really fun seeing something this happy and this joyful,” he told 69 News.

He said the woman and her husband already had made a decision to try to find the baby she had given up 27 years ago. He added all the media coverage about Deprill’s search made it easier, but also “scared Mom a bit. She did not want to be in the limelight.”

According to Waldron, Deprill’s birth mother had been raped while traveling in another country and became pregnant. She was only 17 years old.

He said abortion was not an option.

She managed to keep her pregnancy a secret. When the baby was born, she told him, she could not take her to the hospital without questions being asked. “She left the baby in a location where the baby would be found and cared for. She kissed the baby on the forehead, Katheryn, and left,” said Waldron.

She left the baby in a location where the baby would be found and cared for. She kissed the baby on the forehead, Katheryn, and left,” said Waldron.

I first heard of Katheryn also known as the Burger King Baby on NBC Nightly News a few nights back Her story touched my heart.

Back Story:

NBC described Katheryn this way: Katheryn_Deprill_2_0828c Katheryn Deprill, wife, mother of three and an emergency medical technician who devotes much of her day to protecting the lives of strangers, is now pursuing the stranger who has eluded Deprill all her life.

Deprill is in search of her biological mother. Adopted into the caring family of Brenda and Carl Hollis, she grew up in Allentown, Pa., and always knew she was adopted. She describes a happy childhood, but at the age of 12, she learned that the circumstances of her birth were headline news in 1986. Her biological mother had wrapped her in a red sweater and abandoned her as a newborn just hours old in the bathroom of a Burger King.


According to Yahoo News, in 1986, a newborn wrapped in a red sweater was found abandoned in the bathroom of a fast-food restaurant. Nearly three decades later, the baby is all grown up and looking for her biological mother, and tens of thousands of people are trying to help.

Katheryn Deprill began her quest on March 2 by posting a photo on her Facebook page 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.”


Deprill, a 27-year-old married mother of three, figured the photo would be reposted by friends, maybe friends of friends. A week later, it’s been shared nearly 27,000 times by Facebook users around the world. Deprill’s story is rocketing around the media world, too.

But there’s still no sign of the mystery woman who left her in a restaurant bathroom.

Deprill said there’s so much she wants to tell her birth mom.

Number one is, I would really like to say, ‘Thank you for not throwing me away, thank you for giving me the gift of life, and look what I’ve become,‘” Deprill said Monday.

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,’ she added.

In a message to her birth mother, she said that she did not want anything other than to say hello – and maybe have a hug.

She could have been very young and very scared. I can’t imagine being in her shoes and being alone,” she told ABC News.

Deprill’s adoptive mother Brenda Hollis said she fully supported her daughter’s plan.

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 told WFMZ.
