Why would she WANT to find some biatch who abandoned her in a frigging restroom?

There's got to be money in this for her somehow. Or maybe she's weird.

Well, that was quick.  I'd get the lights but I'm too busy abandoning a baby in a Burger King bathroom.

Unless it's to kick her in the snatch why would she want to see her?

My birth dad abandoned my family when I was very young. If I ever find that motherfarker, I will kill him. If this lady turns up dead in a month or two, from "natural causes", run a tox screen.

My thoughts as well. Maybe she had a lawyer who threatened to sue BK because her mother is an assclown. BK told her to prove it, and now she gets free Whoppers for life. Onion rings and drinks at half price, though. Only one visit per day. Case settled.

Not mother. Birthmother. Big difference.

They were in the bathroom making babies and I saw one of the babies and the baby looked at me.

Mom was a teenager.  The pregnancy was the result of a rapey relative.  She hid the incident and the pregnancy from her parents.  Mom knew the baby would be found and cared for quickly.  Now we have the hospital no questions asked drop off law.

Kids make bad decisions.  Film at 11.

A Pennsylvanian Burger King

We cast off the shackles of the oppressive King Monarchy and now have an elected Governor, Subby.

There is no theory of liability against Burger King that I can think of. Even if there was, the statute of limitations expired 7 years ago.

Leaving the baby in a bathroom where it would be found and cared for is different than putting the baby in a plastic bag and tossing it in a toilet tank.

In an earlier article, the DA said that the statute of limitations on abandonment is 2 years. So, never.

Article? I'm still trying to read the damn headline.

Either the internet had to finish its shift at Burger King before finding someone's mother, or the baby discovered that her mother proved that the internet works at Burger King now... Or something.
 
2014-03-26 08:33:32 AM
So what's the biatch's name?

My guess is Burger King will pay them to go away and never talk to the press again to keep "Burger King destroys families" from becoming a google-thing.
 
2014-03-26 08:40:28 AM
Even if I hadn't rtfa, I could still see why someone would want to know who exactly their biological parents are. There are medical concerns at the very least.

This is the entire article. Says nothing of WHY the birth mother left her there.

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -
A woman who as a baby just a few hours old was abandoned in the bathroom of a Pennsylvania fast-food restaurant says she has found her birth mother.
Twenty-seven-year-old Katheryn Deprill says she met her biological mother for the first time Monday in an attorney's office. Deprill said Tuesday she felt "pure joy" and it was like "looking in a mirror."
Deprill began her quest March 2 by posting a photo on Facebook. The photo showed Deprill holding up a sign saying, "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 is known as the Burger King Baby. She says she and her birth mom plan to have more meetings to get to know each other better.

It makes me wonder what kind of religious fundie types the birth mom has for parents, if she had to hide all of this from them as well...

The story behind all this makes me all kinds of sad...

My aunt had a baby when she was still in University and not married and was forced to give up the baby (family pressure--what will people THINK?!)
I didn't even know about my cousin's existence until she was in her 20's and wanted to meet my aunt (and the rest of the family).
I think that everything was pretty good at the beginning, until my cousin discovered that my aunt is kind of messed up, lied about who the father was (for 30 years, everyone thought it was one dude, turns out baby was a result of an affair), and was generally self-centered. At least my cousin got to know her other siblings.

I know someone else who was a teen mom, gave up the baby and now has a wonderful relationship with the girl she gave up way back when she just wasn't ready to be a parent.

Let's hope Burger King mom situation is more like the latter.

Well, it was mid/late 80's.  I'd like to believe those people are shuffling off the mortal plane in ever increasing numbers.  Cross your fingers.

WordyGrrl: Here's a much better article than the linked one: http://articles.mcall.com/2014-03-25/news/mc-allentown-burger-king-ba b y-finds-mom-20140325_1_mother-and-daughter-finds-mom-south-whitehall-t ownship


Thanks for that link.  These are the results that keep most adoptees hoping to find their birth parents, but for most of them, the birth parents are dead or better off never found.  Especially if the adoptee has been fantasizing about parents that would swoop in and rescue them from whatever home they ended up in.  Growing up, thinking the first people that knew you didn't want you, is hard enough, but finding out the birth parents are in much, much worse circumstances can be devastating.

To verify that she is indeed fat and ticklish, obviously.  And that she was once with the boom.

Maybe I haven't had enough coffee, but I don't see that in the linked article at all.   In fact, it is pretty short, so here is the whole thing:

Twenty-seven-year-old Katheryn Deprill says she met her biological mother for the first time Monday in an attorney's office. Deprill said Tuesday she felt "pure joy" and it was like "looking in a mirror."

Can you please point out where it says anything about hidden pregnancies or rapey relatives?

I saw Principal Skinner and Mrs. Krabappel in the closet making babies and I saw one of the babies and the baby looked at me.
 
2014-03-26 10:35:59 AM
I've seen a few of these things pop on facebook and my first thought is always "what if the birth parent doesn't want to be found?"  There are a million different reasons why a person would abandon/put kid up for adoption, so obviously not all of them think that way, but to put them on public blast like that just seems farked up....

/hope the BK baby and mom get their shiat figured out
//wouldn't be surprised if they don't

Didn't really give birth mother details.

At this point, I have to assume that the BK baby and her mother are pretty much the same age.
 
2014-03-26 11:06:46 AM
This is nightmare fuel to me and probably the number one reason why I'd choose abortion over adoption.

Better get a DNA test. It's not unheard of for attention whores (or worse) to pretend to be the person you're looking for.

As an adoptee who has found her birthfamily, I am very very happy for Ms. Deprill.  I am sure she grew up with many of the same questions I did...there are always the medical problems you know nothing about, but for me it was also:  who did I get these knobby knees from?  who do I look like?  did someone have clincial depression/anxiety, if so who? who had huge feet (size 9 1/2 womens at 5'5 1/2")?  These were among my questions and I had a normal adoption.  Aside from those questions, there also comes a point where you just want to say thanks (at least I did).  Thanks for loving me more than you loved yourself and putting me up for adoption.  You want to let them know you turned out okay (better than okay).

Once I found my birthfamily and got the courts to unseal my records, I kind of went the other way though.  I found out that my birthmom had not sought out or received any prenatal care until about 2 weeks before I was born.  In speaking with my half-sister, she told me that my birthmom wanted to abort me but it was too late along in the pregnancy (this was in 1967) and then she kept hoping she would miscarry and kept smoking and drinking in an effort to make me go away.  When it got to around the 8th month, she realized I wasn't going anywhere and found the adoption agency who handled my adoption.  They were able to provide two weeks of prenatal care before she delivered.   I was born one month premature.

I truly hope Ms. Deprill receives answers to all of her questions and is left with a good feeling about her reunion.

/after finding my birthfamily, all I can say is "Thank God I was adopted!"
//of course it still goes the other way, like when my (adoptive) brother does something stupid--"Thank God I'm adopted!"
///birthmom has been forgiven for neglecting me during her pregnancy but I'm having a hard time forgiving her for killing herself before I could find her
 
2014-03-26 12:35:12 PM
You guys really can't fathom that there are people out there who would want to know about their birth parents, even if they were less savory than Fark requires? For a reason beyond "kill the biatch"? There are a lot of reasons someone would do that beyond pure hatred for others.

The only good counterargument is, that's how we end up with Voldemorts.
