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

I believe in this story from It's about how having autism may mean more intelligence. My oldest son who is in the 2nd grade is highly intelligent. He is in the top of his class. He is an excellent student in Math, Reading, and Spelling. He usually has 100 average in those classes, and in spelling he gets the bonus points as well. He retains information very well, and even so over a long period of time. My youngest son is still learning in kindergarten and is receiving occupational therapy for his handwriting, and is experiencing delays in reading sight words, and sequencing. My husband is also highly intelligent. He is going to college for computer programming and has been in college for two years. He will graduate in 2010, and is maintaining a GPA of 4.0.
