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


Andrew Wakefield fixed autism data on vaccines

>> Sunday, February 8, 2009

Andrew Wakefield is the man who started the scare of MMR shots causing autism. It has been found that he lied about his findings, by changing what he had found. Confidential medical documents and interviews with witnesses have established that Andrew Wakefield manipulated patients’ data, which triggered fears that the MMR triple vaccine to protect against measles, mumps and rubella was linked to the condition.
Last week official figures showed that 1,348 confirmed cases of measles in England and Wales were reported last year, compared with 56 in 1998. Two children have died of the disease. All just because this man decides he will change information on findings creating the MMR scare of autism. This was reported by TimesOnline and The Discovery Magazine.
It is a shame that someone would alter their findings on autism for any reason, and this is one of the worst since there are lots of families who believe that MMR vaccines do cause autism. We all have our own beliefs, but what this doctor has done was just the icing on the cake.
