March 1980 Texas Adoptee Looking For Birthparents

I am a Texas adoptee who was born the week of spring 1980 at Polly Ryan Medical Center in Richmond, Texas. I believe that one or both of my birthparents were in the military, and both worked in restaurants. Birthmother was born in 1957 with two sisters 1960 and 1961. My birthparents were married in February 1979, and were married for six months. I had seizures at birth as well. I had a closed adoption with now Spaulding For Children based in Houston, Texas. My birthfather was born in 1958. Over the past few years I have had adoptee angels working to filter through public records looking for a possible connection. I have had names checked as if I knew who they were, then I could receive my original birth certificate from the state. The names that I have right now that have not been checked are as follows:

Birthmother: Darlene Kay (Bennett) Peters
Birthfather: Douglas R. Whitehead

They should still be somewhere near Richmond, Texas today!

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you


Detecting Autism Early....New procedure

>> Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Early detection for autism is very important, and today some are not diagnosed until they are at least three years of age or longer. There is now a new way to test for autism as early as 9 months, which is great. The researcher's at Canada's McMaster University has developed a computerized test to track the eye movements of an infant with sensors that aims to predict autism in children. It administers five eye-tracking tests over ten minutes. It measures the direction and fixation of a child's eyes to an image or human face. Yale's University's Toddler Developmental Disibilities Clinic uses similar techniques to study patterns in children ages three months to three years. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Media Lab has created a software and in-home recording devices that track the habits of a newborn, to find clues to detecting autism early on in life. I believe that this is great. Everything helps when it comes to diagnosing autism early, and I hope that they have great findings, and amaze the world. Here is the article from out of Abilene, Texas.
