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


Searching For Birthparents...My Progress

>> Saturday, November 14, 2009

Well, looks like I am searching for my birth parents again now. I had done that last year, but we turned up with the wrong names. Now I am willing to try again. I had a different researcher who is from the Yahoo Groups called Texans For Adult Adoptee OBC Access. I am really pleased that she had the names for me the same day. Now all I have to do is to apply for my original birth certificate. I would give the names that I have, but I want to make sure that I do have them correct before I just go out there and make it known. My "birthmother" lives in Rosenburg, TX and my "birthfather" had passed away in 2003. He lived in Trinity, TX. I still do not know if this is them for sure or not. I feel sadden to know that my possible birthfather is gone, but I refuse to let that part get to me until I know for sure.

I am hoping that I will be able to send off for my birth certificate soon, and that I will hear something good back. So how many times will I try since each one costs ten dollars? You know, I am not really sure. I am just ready for it to be over with, or will it ever be over for me? I do not want to be searching for the next ten years, so I guess that I will end up stopping after so many times when I just can not do it anymore. Well, I guess I will let everyone know how it goes whenever I actually get around to sending off for it.
