Myka Stauffer Adoption: Myka Stauffer and her husband James Stauffer are in the media headlines for “Adoption Scandal”, Myka and James are facing widespread criticism after she and her husband, James, decided to “rehome” their adopted son more than two years after they brought him home from China.
On May 26th, they uploaded video on their Youtube channel and confessed that they “rehomed” their adopted son Huxley who is four years old as of 2020. The couple adopted Huxley in 2017 who suffer from autism and in the video they explained to fans that they didn’t understand what it would be like to raise a child with “special needs.”
James Stauffer claimed the couple had not been informed ahead of time about how severe the child’s needs were before they brought him home, he said. In the video, he said “I can’t say enough how hard Myka has tried throughout this entire journey and the amount of effort she’s put into this in helping Huxley as much as she can.”
James said in the video, he and Myka Stauffer were reportedly told before the adoption that Huxley had a brain cyst and a brain tumor. They allegedly later discovered that their (now former) son actually had a stroke in utero, and has autism and a sensory processing disorder. Furthermore, in the video, Myka added that she felt she had failed Huxley because he needed care that she didn’t feel equipped to provide.
Myka Stauffer said “There’s not an ounce of our body that doesn’t love Huxley with all of our being. There wasn’t a minute that I didn’t try our hardest and I think what Jim is trying to say is that after multiple assessments, after multiple evaluations, numerous medical professionals have felt that he needed a different fit and that his medical needs, he needed more.”
The Stauffers explained that the adoption agency and medical experts had Huxley spend time with different people in order to find his “perfect match and fit for his now new forever family.”
