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


Changing Rules of Book Contest For "Rex"

>> Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Dear Readers, Due to no entries for a post for a free book, I am changing the rules of the contest in order to be absolutely sure that someone will receive it. I will also extend the time until March 21, 2009 for your convenience. Over on the right side of my blog is a comment counter. It will keep track of who has the most comments from a specific person. Now is your chance to catch up so start giving comments (one per post) in a race to beat the clock. Sounds like a lot of fun to me. Our leader for today is Melissa with 7 comments. Congratulations! By the way, please make your comments worthwhile or delete may be of order. I hope not though. I am looking for real stuff here and not just a bunch of hello's; my shout mix and yahoo pingbox takes care of the chatting for me. I am looking for value and well thought out comments. Thank you and have a wonderful day reading and commenting. Hope somebody will make this a true challenge for others. GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
