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


Common Additives In Foods

>> Monday, January 5, 2009

What will you find in your food after you read those labels. Lots of chemicals added to enhance the flavor and life of your food. This will be a three part process on listing those ingredients that can reak havoc on your body. Especially those who are considering the Feingold diet or are worried about additives. This list is taken from a book called," Why Can't My Child Behave?" By: Jane Hersey

Although it's possible to be sensitive to anything, most food additives present no problem, even for the chemically sensitive individual. Here are some of the ones in common use.

Additives that are NOT allowed on the Feingold Diet:

Artificial flavoring
Aspartame (synthetic sweetner)
BHA(butylated hydroxyanisole)
BHT(butylated hydroxytoluene)
Citrus Red No. 2
Cyclamate (synthetic sweetner)
Ethyl Vanillin (synthetic/artificial flavoring)
FD&C colors
MSG (monosodium glutamate)
Neotame (new more potent form of aspartame)
Saccharin (synthetic/artificial sweetner)
Tartrazine(FD&C yellow No. 5, synthetic/artificial coloring)
TBHQ(tertiary buty hydroquinone)
Vanillin(artificial flavoring)

This is just a start, and there are some that can have a potential effect on those who are chemically sensitive. Once you think about it and find out what exactly is in these additives you would want to eat from the ground up and not from the boxes of food you buy at the store.
