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


Ten Year Old Autistic Boy Arrested

>> Saturday, February 14, 2009

Ian Garvin was cutting his shirt with a pair of scissors when his teacher told him to stop. He then fell to a tantrum and ran out of the room and locked himself inside the principle's office. When teachers tried to confront him, he attacked back by hitting and kicking a teacher. His mother Heather Hawk, said "He just wanted to be alone and he was trying to get them away the only way he knows how." Autistic children do have tempermental times, and when they do it is always they just want to be away from the situation. I have been through similar situations with my oldest wanting to threaten other children, but the school understands that he does have autism and that a possibility of an eruption could happen. They wanted to suspend him, but the therapist intervined. Saving him this time. He usually gets this way when he is off of him medicine due to not having any, but is behaving properly when he is on it. Without it, he is just impossible to handle and to deal with. You can read the story here on MSNBC.
