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


Seeing Color Through Music Is A Genetic Link

>> Monday, February 9, 2009

I ran across an article today that is talking about synesthesia and the link to autism and a photographic memory. People use synesthesia to memorize numbers, notes, etc., creating exceptional intellectual ability. This is another way that autism individuals actually learn. You can read more about the study that Julian Asher conducted about the link between the two from this CNN story. It's just one more way to say that genetics have something to do with autism's way of functioning in children and in adults. Hope that you enjoy this article.
