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


Robots and Autism

>> Thursday, February 19, 2009

One day robots will help autistic children with their social skills one day according to this article out of Nashville, TN. For sometime now robots have been used to treat people with autism to do many things. The only problem they have now would be that they had no way of monitoring the emotional state of the child and be able to respond. Quite a task if you ask me. The research was made possible by a grant from the Marino Autism Reasearch Institute, and two papers, the results of the study, will be published in IEEE Transactions on Robotics and the International Journal of Human -Computer Science. I hope that you will enjoy reading the article. There is another one here as well. Robots helping our children react to the world.
