Myka Stauffer apologizes for rehoming autistic son and ‘letting down’ fans
She’s issued a Myka culpa.
Myka Stauffer, the controversial YouTuber who gave up her adopted son Huxley, who has autism, has broken her silence and apologized “for all the hurt I’ve caused” in a lengthy Instagram post. Written on the Notes app of her iPhone, the 33-year-old influencer, who previously worked with the likes of Dreft laundry detergent and T.J. Maxx, says sorry “for letting down so many women who looked up to me as a mother.”
She blames the “rehoming” mess — which saw some internet vigilantes demand that money made off of content with Huxley, 5, be returned to him — on inadequate adoption prep.
“I received one day of watching at home online video training and gained my Hague adoption certification,” writes the Ohio-based Stauffer, who boasts 202,000 Instagram followers and 696,000 in YouTube to date. Although she went through an “accredited” agency, she adds, “For me, I needed more training.” She alluded to as much when she called out #reactiveattachmentdisorder in a now-deleted post online, a reference to a condition where young children have trouble forming bonds with their parents.
“I was naive, foolish, and arrogant” the statement reads, although the blond mom insists she doesn’t regret adopting Huxley from China about three years ago. “I’m still so glad Huxley is here and getting the help he needs.” – Source
