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


My Birthday Day

>> Sunday, March 22, 2009

I had a wonderful birthday. My day started out good. I woke up at 6 am to check email and everything. I still felt tired so I went back to bed until about 9 when Devin woke up. The boys were good today, except for a few times when they just could not leave each other alone.

Most of the afternoon, I was scrambling to get the house clean, because I had called mom to let her know that I needed a babysitter on the 23rd so that I could go to the autism meeting that I had planned on going to for two months now.

Mom said that Ryan wanted to go watch a movie. He's my brother. Just got his first car, but I do not even know what kind it is. Just that it does have one headlight out so they didn't bring it. So we agreed to go out for dinner and a movie for my birthday. She said that she would be back for me to go to the meeting. So I am greatful that she will make two trips for me.

While I was washing the dishes, I had wished that mom would bring me the chairs she had given to me months ago. To my surprise, within an hour he she comes bringing me my chairs for my kitchen table. Yipppeeee I got my birthday wish. LOL.

So what movie did we see? The Knowing. It was a good movie, but having to sit so close was torture on the eyes. Especially mine since I am sensitive to lights. I had to cover my ears a few times because it was so loud. I have sound sensitivities as well. To bad for me.

Well, guess I had a pretty good 29th birthday! Would also like to say happy birthday to my Uncle Bobby who had a birthday on the 20th. The day before mine. Usually, we celebrate them together when we are together. We did this a lot when I was a kid and the last time we did, I was turning 15. Been a long time Uncle Bobby, so I hope that you had a good birthday as well.
