PALMER, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts woman found abandoned as a newborn in a hospital bathroom 25 years ago wants to meet her mom.

Kathleen O’Shea, of Palmer, took to Facebook this week to seek help finding her birth mother, something she says she’s been putting off for years because of fear of the unknown.

O’Shea said she was found in the ladies’ room at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield on June 20, 1991, wrapped in a yellow blanket with a bottle of milk. She was raised by adoptive parents in Monson.

Her birth mother, a Springfield teenager, turned herself in to police, but there is no record of her name because she was not charged.

O’Shea now has two children of her own and wants her mother to know she is a grandmother.
