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

Lost Memories

>> Monday, March 29, 2010

Today was a sad day for our family. The house that my husband grew up in has burned. I was checking my email, and noticed that on my local news list there was a house in Shannon, MS that had burned. I took a closer look at the picture and noticed that it was my husband's grandmother's house. He had grew up in the house his entire life. We even lived there for about two years after we had gotten married, so it was a very memorable house to all of us. My husband is on his way there and has only seen this picture:

As you noticed that the fire trucks are on concrete. It was this way at the house because my husbands uncle owns a furniture factory that is next to it. It used to belong to his grandfather. After looking at another source, I found this picture. My husband has not seen this one yet, but from the looks of it is the house.

See how the concrete goes right up to the house! Where the firefighters are standing, it used to be an entire room, but had recently been made into a garage without outer walls. The house was being rented out at the time. We are thankful that no one was hurt.

Hello 30's Goodbye 20's

>> Sunday, March 21, 2010

Today I am saying, "Good bye 20's, Hello 30's." That is right, today is my birthday. To bad that it is raining and cold. We are sitting at 35 degrees at 11:30. My husband allowed me to sleep until I got up about 9:00 this morning. We I came into the living room, the kids were looking at me as if they had something to say. When I came in, they told me Happy Birthday Mom. What a wonderful way to wake up in the morning. The only thing that I am not so happy about would be the health care bill. I hope that they do not pass it especially on my birthday... what a present from the government. It is something that I am just not looking forward to. I am not sure what the rest of the day will bring, or who will come visit me. Aunt Kat told me that mom may come down, so I guess I will see her soon.

Thanks for visiting me today, and hope that you will enjoy your day as well.

Returning

>> Monday, March 1, 2010

I have finally made it back to blogging again after being away all month. We decided to change internet providers. We were going with AT&T, but we have moved to Comcast, our local cable company. The speed is incredible, and we no longer have internet connection disruptions any more. We got a great deal on it as well. We are paying half of what we were with internet and phone. We never really use the phone anyway, so this time we got cable. We are only paying for basic, but we are getting all the channels since the installer said that they can no longer block the channels out. Good for us and the kids. We have not had cable in a few years so it has been enjoyable to have it again. The boys enjoy watching Cartoon Network, and we usually watch Fox News when they are not watching t.v.

We had some sickness in the family this past month. The week of Valentine's Day was aweful. Devin had gotten sick at his stomach for about two days. A few days later, my husband came down with the stomach virus. Later, my oldest came down with it for a week. I never got sick though. That usually happens for me. We are all well now, and I hope that we do not get sick any more this winter.

Well, guess that is about all that we had done over the last month. Same ole things going on down here. Guess that I will leave it at that and get going. Need to clean up the house again today! An endless job around here!

Thanks for visiting today!! I appreciate it.
