Myka Stauffer Says Adopted Son Huxley Approved Of Rehoming

Myka Stauffer has opened up to fans a little more about rehoming her almost 5-year-old adopted son Huxley.

The 32-year-old YouTuber and mom to five other children responded to a comment in the family update video about why she and husband James chose to rehome him.

“We would never just give up a child with special needs, this is a personal matter to Hux it had nothing to do with he just had Autism,” she defended. “Multiple scary things happened inside the home towards our other children, and if these events happened with one of my biological kids, after all the help and after the behaviors we witnessed sadly we would have no other choice then to seek help and get their needs met.”

Myka went on, explaining that “Huxley wanted” the rehoming “100% we saw that in family time with other poeple [sic], he constantly chose them and signed with and showed tons of emotion to show us and let us know he wanted this.”

“Huxley never had a say in his adoption, and he needed more help and also wanted this and we know that 100%.”

Lawyers for the couple also shared with People that this wasn’t an overnight decision to rehome Huxley, rather came “to the difficult determination to follow the advice of the medical professionals. To be clear this did NOT include any considerations for placement in the foster system, but rather to hand-select a family who is equipped to handle Huxley’s needs. They were forced to make a difficult decision, but it is in fact, the right and loving thing to do for this child.”

Myka and James opened up about the rehoming of Huxley in an emotional video on their channel earlier this week, and it came with plenty of stunned fans and backlash.
