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


Treatment for Rett's Syndrome

>> Tuesday, February 10, 2009

I am not familiar with Rett's Syndrome just for starters, I do know that it also causes autism-like symptoms in girls as well as complications with their heart and breathing. However, I came across this article from US News that talks about a possible treatment. The article says that "Daily shots of the active fragment from a protein called insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) helped with movement and breathing irregularities." They are testing mice for now but say that this is the only "drug" that will help with breathing irregularities. Please read the article for more information on this new treatment. Also, there is information on Rett's Syndrome on their website at the very bottom of the page. All comments are welcome!
