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


Fall 2011 Midterm Grades Are In

>> Saturday, October 15, 2011

Good morning everyone, I thought that I would do a post on myself giving you the details on my progress in college. As with most colleges, it is time for midterm grades. I received my grades last week so I wanted to share those with my friends and family. Well, here we go...

English Composition A
Intermediate Algebra B
Macroeconomics B
Psychology I A

My husband has not told me what his were, but we already know what he made. An A in every subject. LOL. Hey, that is not fair. No matter what grade he did make, I am still proud. For me, I am happy with what I received. A B is good enough for me, however it will make me work harder for the rest of the semester to try and bring it up. You have to consider that family time which allows you to do nothing but run around the house in circles getting everyone comfortable with their situation.

I was really surprised how easy college would be. All materials are pretty much given to you, so you know exactly what you will be learning. It gives you a heads up, where in high school you had no idea. I am enjoying it so far, yet I have a few more years to go.

I have decided to go into Medical Information Technologies. The only thing that I do not like is that my community college is limited on their choices for a major. I had originally wanted to do Medical Laboratory Technician, but it was not offered.

Well, guess that I will be going now. Hope that you all have a wonderful day
