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


Howie Mandel Raises ADHD Awareness Campaign

>> Thursday, January 29, 2009

Howie Mandel host of Deal or No Deal is coming out saying that as a child in school he could not focus on school due to impulsivity. He is now part of the Adult ADHD Is Real Campaign. Who would have ever thought that he would have adult ADHD? He was diagnosed as an adult and encourages adults who may suspect ADHD in themselves to get tested and treated. He says that he is involved to teach adults that it is never to late to receive help. You can read the article here on MSNBC.
You can also learn more about him and the Adult ADHD Is Real Campaign. There is also a self test to help you screen for ADHD. Hope you will go visit and learn about Howie Mandel. I'd say congratulations to Howie for believing in all of us.
