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


Dealing With Aloofness?

>> Wednesday, November 18, 2009

At certain times, the boys will snap into an aloofness state, and getting them out of it is difficult. I know how to stop some of it, but somethings they would not give up. For instance, during bath time they get very excited, dangerous, and will have the "autism behavior" as I call it. They squirt water absolutely everywhere and they do it just because they know they are not supposed to. Being squirted with water is not much fun either. They get so wild that I have to drag them out of the tub. Making them stand up without laughing and clinching their bodies tight is a struggle all on it's own. It is the same thing with eating. Running around in circles like a merry-go-round.

I was wondering if you had any ideas on how to conquer aloofness behaviors. I would like to help them overcome some of this. They have grown out of some of it, but they are able to understand that it is not acceptable. They ARE able to behave.
