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

>> Saturday, February 28, 2009

Sometimes, the Pure Facts Magazine/newsletter from the Feingold Association of the United States (FAUS) has recipes in it. So I would like to share one with you.

Cindy's Rice Pilaf Mix (Feingold Diet)
2 cups uncooked white rice (not instant)
1 cup orzo (pasta) vermicelli, broken into 1 inch pieces
1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix all of the ingredients and store in an air-tight container. To make 4 to 6 servings: Shake or stir the mixture well. Place 1 cup mix and 2 Tablespoons butter in a heavy saucepan and brown the rice and noodles. Add 2 1/4 cups chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cover; reduce heat. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
