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

Today is the day for my husband. Why? Graduation Day!! He is majoring in computer programming, and he has finished 3 years of school with a 3.96 GPA. The only B that he has made the entire time was in English. I believe that he told me that he had a hard teacher for that class. In everything else, he made A's. He will also be graduating with special honors. Learning the computer languages was exceptionally easy for him. When we first got our computer, he automatically knew everything about them. His mother had one of those dinosaur computers which he did know how to operate. Today's computers are much more advanced than they used to be, yet he took up with it instantly.

I had to call mom yesterday to see if she could take the boys and me to Fulton for his graduation. His mother is not able to come, because of her car's condition. It is very picky on when it will run or not. His brother Jake will not be able to come either. Not sure why though, however he was here just about two weeks ago. I was very lucky to get a hold of mom. If I could not get her ASAP, then the boys and me would not be able to go either. Glad that I did get a hold of her. I would have been very sad if we were not able to go. I am sure that he would be too.

For you my dear, I am congratulating you for all the hard work you have done all these years. I rarely seen you with a textbook studying, yet you have accomplished so much. I hope that this experience will open up a lot of doors for you to walk through. Now is your chance to fly like an eagle, and make a better life for you and your family. Best wishes to you, and I hope that you will find what you are looking for in the job force. I am so happy for you that tears of joy fall from my eyes. We have waited for so long for this day to come, and it is a relief that you are finally finished. It seemed like forever this year, because we knew that graduation was not far away and we would be free from all the struggles that come along with a parent who is in college.

Again Congratulations and


Love always,
Your wife and boys
