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


Autism Rates

>> Tuesday, November 17, 2009

I have always wondered about autism rates in Mississippi and the US as well. I found a good source for that at Fighting Autism. They also have other disability rates as well. Some of you may already know about this page, but I thought that I would share it here as well. I am providing you with the rates of autism cases in public schools for ages 3 to 22 years of age. Mississippi only has 1212, and I was amazed at that. I noticed that the more densely populated area had a lot more, due to so many people. Or is due to something else? We may never know. So, what are the rates where you live? Hope that you will use this website in the near future. You are also allowed to use the tables that are provided on your blog or website. Raise awareness!!
