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


Erik Lippmann Found On Shoreline Has Past Away

>> Thursday, April 29, 2010

I want to take an opportunity to send my condolences to Erik's family. He was found on the shoreline about 200 yards south of the sand plant off Lapis Road just above the surf line in Santa Cruz, California at Marina beach. He was missing for eight days before someone found him on the beach. You can read about Erik Lippmann's death here at Mercury News. I was praying very hard for him to be found safe, the world was. So short on life, he was only 30 years old. He was loved by his family, especially his mother Alpha Ratike. To Ratike, I am deeply sorry for your loss. God bless your heart.
