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


Autistic Mourns Over Washington Police Shootings

>> Wednesday, December 2, 2009

In recent days, America has mourned the loss of four Lakewood, Washington police officers. This tragedy has also hit the autism community. Ronnie Owens (one of the police officers that was killed) had become a good friend of Joshua Cribb who is an 18 year old autistic. They became friends when Joshua's family moved to the area three years ago. The last time they say each other was a week before the incident. Joshua mourns for his friends he lost that day. My heart goes out to all the families involved. God Bless You All!!

His mother, Kathy Cribb, tells her son's story in this video.
