Eighteen years ago Bill Kotch of Jones, Okla. found a special bundle at a Denny's in Texas, a baby girl.

Kotch had stopped at a Denny's off of Interstate 35 in Gainsville, Texas when he found Baby Jane Doe abandoned in the parking lot. Fast forward 18 years and Kotch receives a letter in his mailbox from the baby girl who is now a teenager.

Bethany Laroche, 18, wanted to thank Kotch and for her birthday she wanted nothing more than to meet the man who found her.

Kotch agreed to meet Laroche in what turns out to be a heartfelt reunion. Watch their reunion and story in the video to the right.
