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


Snow For Devin's Birthday

>> Monday, January 11, 2010

With everything that is going on with me in the past week, I have been delayed in wishing my little Devin a Happy Birthday. It was on the 7th. He is now 7 years old. So Happy Birthday Devin. What he got for his birthday is any kids wish down here in Mississippi. We had snow! It had snowed for at least the first part of the day, and is still around in shady parts of the yard after five days. That never happens down here. It has been so cold here, and we are still shivering even though we finally made it out of the freezing mark today. I feel for those who have a lot more snow to deal with. I can not imagine what it is like for those who experience it day after day during the winter. My friend Rose is Freezing Cold where she lives. Take a look at her porch chair all covered in snow. They had removed the snow, but it just piled up again. Wow! Well, here is what we got. LOL. Not much to speak of though. Most of the ponds around here still have a frozen layer of ice on them. Some ponds even still have snow on the top of the ice. We rarely get snow in Mississippi, so when it does snow we really enjoy it.

Happy Birthday Devin:) We have a LOT of snow here and aren't used to it either so schools closed etc. I, like you, wonder how people deal with the cold all the time, but people say that about us in Ireland and the rain we get!! We are used to it lol. Hope he had a great day:) Jen
