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


In Memory of James Delorey

My heart goes out to a family in Cape Breton, Novia Scotia, Canada. For the past few days (72 hours) searchers have been looking for a seven year old non-verbal autistic boy who ran away from home after their family dog. The boy, James Delorey, was not dressed for the coming snowstorm that would claim his life. He suffered from hypothermia and was unconscious when they had found him. He was found early this morning. To the family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. The article is here. He is an angel now.

My heart is breaking for this family, it is exactly the kind of thing my little fella would do so I understand how easily it could happen. My thoughts are with them.
