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


ADHD and Food Coloring Bill...Maryland

>> Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Finally everything that I have learned over the last several months is finally getting through. Maryland will probably be the first state to have warning labels on products that contain food colorings. YES!!! Hope that other states will follow. The FDA has looked at past studies on ADHD and food colorings. You can read the article here.

I know that many will be proud especially Jane Hersey from the Feingold Program since this is exactly what the diet consists of...the removal of food colorings and additives. I have seen changes in my boys behavior since the removal of unwanted colors and flavors. This is just so much exciting news to be able to talk about. Now maybe the word will spread, and more bills will be introduced. Hope that it will become a nationwide action, but would be better if they would also just ban them completely. What do you think?
