(NBC News) A Pennsylvania woman in search of her biological mother is getting some help from Facebook users.

Katheryn Deprill was just hours old when her mom left her in a Burger King restroom in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1986.

Just over a week ago she posted this picture on Facebook asking people to share the image on their page in hopes of possibly finding her mother.

Since then the image has been shared more than 27,000 times by people around the world.

Deprill says she is anxious to meet her mom so she can thank her for "not throwing me away" and giving her "the gift of life."
