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


Relationship-based intervention with Rebecca Klaw

>> Thursday, March 19, 2009

Play is fueled by social interaction, and serves as the basis for early learning. The child at play is very complex and engage in activities that develops skills and builds, bit by bit concepts as complicated as physics and essential as empathy. Children with autism have difficulty learning from others how to expand their play, and need to learn through patient and skilled adults, how to play.

Have a child who wants to be left alone when he plays is quite common. These children have social difficulties that makes it hard for you to interact with them. Insist that they play with you . They need to be guided moreable ways to explore all aspects of their world, not just how to manipulate objects, but how to share, build, pretend, elaborate, invent, describe and create. Some of the ways to engage children with ASD in play is by heightening interest, be persistent, include repetition, establish routines, add sensory stimulation, minimize language, and most importantly have fun. Rebecca Klaw has a DVD collection on relationship-based intervention and also visit her website to see her schedule of training nationwide.
