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


ADHD Only Research Study In Sydney: You Can Participate For Free

>> Tuesday, May 4, 2010

For those in Australia, there is a participation opportunity for those who are parents of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). The Sydney University Faculty of Health Sciences are looking for participants for a play- based intervention program that assists children with ADHD to help develop their social interactions with others. This will also help them in learning how to build friendships.

"In a previous study involving 350 children, we discovered that the play of children with ADHD differed from that of their peers," says Professor Anita Bundy.

The program takes seven week including assessment of social language, play skills, and play-based intervention. They are seeking children between the ages of 5 and 11 years old, having a confirmed diagnosis of ADHD. Children can participate in the program if they have conditions commonly occurring with ADHD (learning disorders and oppositional defiant disorder) provided ADHD is the primary diagnosis.

Children will not be able to participate if they have other major developmental or psychiatric disorders (autism, intellectual disability, and cerebral palsy). Participants will be required to have functional English skills to participate. The program is free and you can learn more about the ADHD only play-based intervention study in Sydney, Australia from The Medical News.
