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


Wendy Portillo Wants Suspention Overturned Due To Autism Incident

>> Monday, February 2, 2009

Reading along I found a women who let her kindergarten class decide on if or if not an autistic child should be or not to be removed from class. She is from Port St. Lucie, Florida. The St. Lucie County school board voted in November to suspend Morningside Elementary School teacher Wendy Portillo for a year without pay because the child has Asperger's Syndrome. There are two previous articles also from this one that I came across. It is a sad situation and I agree with his mom. It's not right to have a teacher let the students of a kindergarten class to choose the outcome of this little boy.
