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


Gary McKinnon Still Faces Extradition

>> Saturday, November 28, 2009

Gary McKinnon is still in the news. I had recently did a post on McKinnon receiving the Medal of Honor, and now McKinnon is still being extradited to the United States and it could happen as early as Christmas. His mother Janis Sharp is devastated by Alan Johnson's decision. She claims that Gary is not talking much and that is not a good thing. I am sure that he is worried about himself, and what will become of himself. Mr. Johnson had told them that the medical evidence on Gary McKinnon was not strong enough for him to stop the move on human rights ground. Gary could be facing up to 60 years in prison if convicted, and the United States is rejecting any pleas to block Gary's extradition.

I am wondering what they will do with Gary McKinnon in the future, so I am following this story as close as I can.
