LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ A woman who was abandoned as a newborn in Lawrence almost 50 years ago says she's had a happy life.

A cleaning woman found the baby at what was called the Grover Bungalo Launderette in November 1964. She was likely no more than three hours old. Nurses at a Lawrence hospital named her Baby Amy.

Her parents were never found.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports she was adopted and spent the first seven years of her life in Kansas. The family moved to New York state. After earning two college degrees, she has traveled the world as an underwater archaeologist and currently lives in Craig, Alaska. She and her husband have two children.

She says she forgives her birth mother and would thank her if the two ever met.
