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

ARTS, a ground-breaking documentary that highlights "Possibilities, Disabilities and the Arts", will be featured at its Los Angeles premiere presented by the Autism Society of America-Los Angeles (ASA-LA) Chapter on April 17, 2009 at 6:30 pm at the Barnsdall Gallery Theater.

In this innovative documentary, filmmaker Keri Bowers shares how the arts offer valuable free and low cost "power tools" families and professionals can use to improve social skills, self-confidence, life skills, language, emotional well-being, and even potential career paths for those with special needs. ARTS delves into painting, film, drama, writing, dance, public speaking and other creative mediums through interviews with internationally recognized luminaries, such as Temple Grandin, Stephen Shore, Stephen Wiltshire, Donna Williams, Jerry and Mary Newport, Geri Jewell among others.

At the premiere of ARTS, guests will enjoy an art exhibition and silent auction. A presentation of ASA-LA and Normal Films' "Hearts and Arts Award" will recognize individuals who have promoted excellence in community service and autism:

Those in attendance will mingle under the stars, overlooking the Hollywood sign and Griffith Park Observatory with the filmmaker and many of the film's stars, including singer Nick Guzman, who performs his breakout song in ARTS, "Since We're Friends", written for him by Joey Travolta and composer Jeff Lass. Joanne Lara of Autism Movement Therapy will dance with several of her young students. Two short films, created by students with autism at the Media Enrichment Academy in Sherman Oaks will also debut their work before the screening of ARTS.

Tickets are available for $20 to the general public online at or the night of the premiere in the Barnsdall Gallery Theater box office.
