A woman abandoned as a baby in a fast food restaurant toilet as tracked down the mother who gave birth to her 27 years ago.
Katheryn Deprill, who now has three children of her own, was found at a branch of Burger King in Pennsylvania in 1986.
She managed to find her mother following a widely-shared Facebook campaign.
Katheryn said she felt "pure joy" when she met her biological mother for the first time Monday in an attorney's office.
"She is better than anything I could've ever imagined. She is so sweet and amazing. I'm so happy," Deprill said.
During her search, Katheryn said: "It takes a strong woman to birth a child with no pain meds…She has to be an extremely strong woman."
She said her mother "did a great job" taking care of her in the womb as she wasn't born with addiction issues, and was very healthy.
To start her search three weeks ago, and on the advice of her adoptive mother, Katheryn posted a picture to Facebook with a sign saying:
“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.”
More than 30,000 shared that post and the story was picked up by the media, leading to this week's reunification between mother and daughter.
The attention caught the notice of the woman claiming to have abandoned her, and she came forward to attorney John Waldron, who arranged for them to meet.
Waldron told WFMZ-TV that the woman said that, as a teenager, she was raped while travelling abroad and became pregnant. The woman said she hid the pregnancy from her parents and, when she gave birth, felt she could not take her newborn to the hospital.
