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

The Autism Support Network has launched it's free online support community to help parents and others learn about the autism spectrum disorder. The Wall Street Journal wrote an article on it, explaining the opportunities that are available. To join in with the Autism Support Network, you can share your opinion and share your experiences with each other. Another one I recommend is AutismWeb. I currently have a poll up to see who all has had issues with Heb B shots, jaundice, and autism. Please sign up for this group and take my poll. There are lots of nice people there to talk to. I've noticed some parents are concerned with these three combined, and I'm hoping to find the end of the light for this. I appreciate any comments that you may have, and could use them on this subject.

I refused the shot for both of mine at birth. They were both born very jauniced anyway. Not sure of why but it seems like every baby i know is very jauniced at birth.
