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


Weight Gain: Abilify

>> Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Earlier this month I was reading headlines from blogs that I have subscribed to, and I found something interesting. Action For Autism is looking for autistics who are currently on Abilify. Abilify has been approved for those with autism. Weight gain is the name of the game, and it is said that you can gain up to a pound a week. For the past two years, I myself have been on Abilify, and I have seen significant weight gain. I take it as a mood stabilizer. Before I started taking the medication, I weighted about 115 pounds (little I know). Over time, I have gained about another 50 pounds. I had talked to my doctor about it once, and she had assured me that it was not the Abilify that was causing my weight gain, but just feeling better. I still had my suspicions about the whole ordeal, and was excited to learn that my suspicions were if fact correct. If you have a child on Abilify, please contact Action For Autism. There is also a Yahoo group for Abilify and weight gain if you would like to join. The link will be on Action For Autism's blog. Please visit the link above for more information. You can also click on the button below. Thank you and let your voice be heard!!
