Police investigating the welfare of Myka Stauffer's adopted son she 'rehomed'

Several brands that once sponsored YouTube personality Myka Stauffer have cut ties with her amid controversy surrounding her once-adopted Chinese son Huxley, who has special needs, Today reports.

According to her Bump post, Myka and James later learned that Huxley "had a stroke in utero".

It is unclear whether the Stauffers used any adoption agencies at all when finding Huxley a new family.

"All adoption cases are confidential, and must go through a thorough process, with specific requirements and safeguards", Whited said in a statement. Photos of her other four children remain. "These include home studies as well as background checks on the adopting parent (s)".

BuzzFeed News also wrote "it is unclear who facilitated the transfer of Huxley to the new family and which, if any, state or adoption agencies were consulted".

Franklin County Children Services confirmed to BuzzFeed News that he was not in its custody.

"We last partnered with Myka in Fall 2019 as a limited engagement", Suave said in a comment.

"With worldwide adoption, sometimes there are unknowns and things that are not transparent on files".


In response to the social media outrage over Huxley's rehoming, Danimals announced on Instagram that it would no longer partner with Stauffer. And they found someone that they believed would ultimately be the best option.

"Over time, the team of medical professionals advised our clients it might be best for Huxley to be placed with another family".

The couple adopted Huxley from China in 2016, sharing the process on Myka's YouTube channel. "We now do not have any sponsorships with Myka and will not work with her in the future", the company wrote in reply to a comment on Instagram.

The Stauffers did not divulge Huxley's whereabouts in their video announcement last week, claiming concerns over the boy's privacy.


Myka and James explained in a tearful video posted that Haxley had "a lot more special needs that we weren't aware of, and that we were not told".

"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 behaviours we witnessed sadly we would have no other choice then to seek help and get their needs met".

The controversy also sparked a Change.org petition demanding the Sauffers take off all monetized content with Huxley in it from YouTube.

"In private adoptions there are the same legal requirements that must be adhered to", she said.


"He is thriving, he is happy, he is doing really well, and his new mommy has medical professional training, and it is a very good fit".
