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


Do You Homeschool Some parents refuse public schools

>> Saturday, February 7, 2009

First of all my two boys are going to public schools. They always have, because they luckily have been able to go with out to much confrontation on their ability to stay in class. We have had behavior issues with my oldest for the first two years of school, but after that he has been great. I admit that he has a few bad days because of being oversensitive some days. It just doesn't cause an everyday problem with him like some would. Lisa Jo Rudy explains why she will never go back to public schools ever again in this article.

Struggling with the IEP's are difficult, and I've never had a problem doing ours. I know the teachers very well, but may see problems down the road when they do reach middle school. They are still young, and behaviors change over time. For now, I just have to keep that candy away from them at school. They are always giving it to my youngest just for being good that day. I'm gonna hate to find out what they are having for Valentine's Day. I just can't have them loaded up on sugar. Needing to add the Feingold Diet to their IEP's next time that we meet.
