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


10 Things To Do With Your Autistic Child On Autism Awareness Day

>> Wednesday, March 25, 2009

April 2, 2009 is Autism Awareness Day!! So I thought that I would come up with a little to do list with your child on this special day. Hopefully you will find it interesting as much as I did putting it together.

10 Things To Do With Your Autistic Child on Autism Awareness Day

1.) Give your child a hug and kiss and tell them today is your day. You are special.
2.)Give thanks to your doctors and therapist by helping your child make a card.
3.) Go on an Autism Awareness Walk in your area. If there is not one create a walk with closest friends of the child.
4.) Read a children's book about their condition or any other type of book they enjoy. Age appropriate children want to learn more about their condition.
5.) Create an Autism Awareness Message on your vehicle, and add a link to your blog or another favorite website. I plan on doing this one.
6.) Donate to autism research. One of the most fulfilling things you can do.
7.) Bake an Autism Awareness Cake. Make sure that it is GFCF, and colors are of natural origin.
8.) Buy your child a favorite toy he does not have. It is sure to keep them busy for a few minutes while you at least sit down.
9.) Buy an Autism Awareness product for you and your child to wear on autism day, and during the month of April.
10.) Go fishing, shopping, or create your own idea. I am curious as to what you can come up with.

I guess we'll go on an extra long walk that day - that way, we'll all benefit.

Greetings from Clive and gang!
