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


Have a Heart Horse Rescue

On October 6, 2008, an article in the Tupelo Daily Journal was published about a women named Sheila Horton. She has a non-profit organization in Baldwyn, Mississippi for the benefit of rescuing horses from abusive owners. She currently has a total of 18 horses and one maybe two are pregnant. Her maximum is 12 horses at a time. She is making this her full time job to care for these animals. She is in desperate need of funding due to a rise in the cost of feeding and vet care. When I read this article in the newspaper, I felt that there must be something that I can do. I contacted her to see if she would allow me to post about her organization. She agreed, and even invited my boys out to see them. I am hoping that you will feel just as concerned as I am and will donate to help keep these horses safe and healthy. The article in the newspaper can be read here. The web site for her is as follows Have A Heart Horse Rescue.
