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

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.
