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


Ritalin Addictive To Mice

>> Wednesday, February 4, 2009

An ADHD medication called Ritalin has been linked to addiction in mice. Our family does use medication to control ADHD symptoms, but thank God not Ritalin. You can read the article here.
After just two weeks, the brains of the mice had changes compared to that of changes in the brain associated with cocaine use. Scary stuff to be giving a child Ritalin.

My oldest son was on Focalin for about two weeks, which is similar to Ritalin. The medication made him jittery, and just not like himself. He basically didn't know what was going on around him. He is now on Vyvanse and is doing much better. To me Ritalin and Focalin are just to harsh to even be considered in the treatment of ADHD. This is why I am also following the Feingold program to alleviate some of the ADHD symptoms, and it does work. Changing the boys route of taking meds has help dramatically. No more unwanted dyes.
