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

Total Issue Resolved

>> Sunday, January 22, 2012

Do you hate it when others hack your blog to add a link that redirects your entire page? I sure do. I even created another blog to prevent any loss of my pages. Luckily all I had to do is look through my codes and find the one that was linking me to another site. I found it in my Entrecard widget. To prevent any future problem, I just deleted my account. Not that I was really using it anyways, but at least now I don't have to worry about it so much. Thanks to wonderful help at Blogger, I am relieved today.

Changing Web Address

Due to an expired domain name, I am forced to change the address of Autism And The World Around Me. The new address will be ourautismworld.blogspot.com. I am hoping that everyone will find it. The address will be changed by tomorrow January 21, 2012. Hopefully by changing it in blogger dashboard, it will fix my problem. If anyone has any suggestions on how I can keep my original address without buying a domain name, I would greatly appreciate it. I am having issues getting these posts to my new address as well.

Thanks again

Eddie's Nomination

Hello everyone, I thought that I would take a few minutes to update you all on everything that has been going on. We are all back in school again, but I am not sure if we are all ready. Christmas vacation came and left with us wishing that it could have been longer. Getting back in the swing of things may take some time, but not to much if we are expecting to get everything done on time. It is housekeeping inspection time as well, so we have that hovering over our heads for the time being.
 
Little Eddie received some great news a few days ago. I have been meaning to write about it, but it seems that other things kept getting in the way. He received a nomination to attend the 2012 Junior National Young Leaders Conference in Washington D.C. I would absolutely love for him to be able to attend the five day conference, but it is an impossibility. First of all, there is tuition (about $2000), then there is the fact that he is only 10 with autism and ADHD. If he was able to attend, I would have to be there by his side at all times before he would even be allowed to go. I just can not put my faith into letting him go alone, or be able to even scratch the tuition surface. I know that there are ways to have fundraisers for the tuition, but even still I would have to be there with him the entire time. Such a great honor for him, and his parents could not have been more prouder.  Congratulations Eddie!!
 
For those who want to know what classes I am taking this semester, I am taking College Algebra, English Comp II, Computer Concepts of Micro Apps, and Principles of Anatomy & Physiology.
 
I would also like to say Happy Birthday to Devin who had his 9th birthday on Jan. 7. We had a family party with just the four of us, and we gave him the Kreo-Bumblebee Transformer set. Granny (Eddie's mom) bought him a cake for me to make. It was 7:00 p.m., before I was able to get it done. We did not see Grandma (my mom) for his birthday, so I do not know what happened there. She has recently started working nights so that she can get a few more hours. She is a Medical Lab Technician at a local hospital. She recently moved into a new house next door to my grandmothers, so I guess she thought that working nights would help her out on that one.
 
I decided to set up blogging by email, since the computers at the college will not allow you to log on to blogger. I am hoping that it works, but then again, I do not see why it would not.
 
Well, I guess that I will get going. I had some time to burn so I thought that I would get something posted. Hope that you all have a wonderful day or night. Whatever your case may be. BE SAFE!!
