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


Tupelo, MS Autism Awareness Walk

>> Monday, March 9, 2009

Autism Awareness Walk on Saturday, April 4, at Veterans Park from 10-12. The walk is FREE, t-shirts are $15 each. We have the walk scheduled at 10:15AM (registration starts around 9:45AM). We are asking people to bring their own picnic, we have an art activity for adults and children, as well as live music. The art activity is the opportunity to paint your own puzzle piece (autism symbol) on large wooden puzzle pieces donated by a group member. A few of these will be on display at Gumtree Arts festival in May along with any other t-shirts, autism info, etc., we can piece together for an exhibit.

Contact Mary Kay Oglesby for information to assist with getting sponsors and/or flyers, pre-registration forms for the walk ( Thanks to Mary who is taking charge of this activity. We appreciate you.

This year, nor any year, will be perfect. We are starting out very small but want to have the walk in April due to Autism awareness month.
