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


Adoption And My Key

>> Monday, March 16, 2009

As many may know, I am an adoptee, and I am in search of my birth parents. Well, some news has come in on this one guys. I have a text block on my page that says, Adoption I'm Looking. Well, looks like it has paid off.

I received an important email that may hold part of my key to being an adoptee. For many years, I have wondered, so I went searching and I found my friend Amy. She searched through 440 different names and found me two that she swears are my birth parents. Thanks Amy!! The lady who contacted me was once married to my birth father. Only one mystery remains, she never knew that there was a baby between him and his first wife of only six months. I send her a picture and she said that my eyebrows are like my birth fathers, but she never saw a picture of my birth mother, so I am guessing that I look more like she does. I am still hoping that one of them will contact me to verify that this is true. I'm pretty sure that it is though. Happy reading everyone as this continues to warm my heart and soul!! I'll keep you all updated on the progress and how we are doing with this adoption thing.
