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

First of all congratulations on the achievement, I believe that every school district has all the necessary skills that is required to work with these children and to hope that it is started much sooner than for some. These children are needing help when they turn 2 or 3 years of age. I was receiving therapy for the boys when they were three, and with Ed I wish it was from birth. I noticed a "problem" with him after he recovered from jaundice. You can read about the accomplishment on the school district and the people who have made this wonderful thing happen here from the local news
