Myka Stauffer's Ex-Friends Break Silence, Police Report Exposes What She Did


The Stauffer family has been mostly silent since they rehomed their former son earlier this year-but the controversy surrounding them hasn’t stopped.
In our last video on the Stauffer situation, we ended it with the news that Myka and James’ former son was safe with a new family.
But since that video was released in mid-June, more information has come out about the situation.

    So why didn’t she “give away” the younger kids? They’d be easier to “rehome” and wouldn’t have to take him out of his environment. Sounds insane but if she truly had loved him or thought of him as the same as others it would be the same. Because she didn’t care about what was best for him, it what was best for HER.

    Sounds like she was just in over her head and didn’t fully understand what she was getting into. I don’t think she really did anything so wrong.

    I'm in a group called 2nd chance adoption and the stories are so similar. People have this disillusioned "quiver full" mentality or a need to save the world. Adopting out of birth order or artificial twinning is a common problem. People assume that this new addition will just fall into place when it's rarely easy. Many agencies now screen for number of children in the home and age of children. If adoption is how you'll add to your family be informed. If you're outraged by this story look into 2nd chance adoption.

    If it was a child that she actually birthed her self she would’ve never got rid of him. If you don’t love your adopted child just like you love the ones that are biologically yours then you shouldn’t have that child. Real family’s that love their children don’t say they have an adopted child and two of their own. They say they have three children. Period.

    While I believe the Stauffers to be awful, hypocritical people and I truly feel for their bio kids, I am genuinely happy that H. got a new home. He never should have gone to the Stauffers as they were in no way equipped to raise him properly. They ALWAYS treated him as an outsider compared to their bio kids. No wonder he acted out.

    The adoption agency needs to be held responsible too. How can they place a 2 and a half year old with special needs and attachment issues with a family that has several other children and is obviously unprepared (and narcissistic)? Before my long term foster son came to live with me at 2 years old, I had to undergo almost a year of training. And even that didn`t prepare me well for the incredibly difficult first year. Even without special needs, moving into another family means severe trauma for a child, you cannot just expect them to blend in with the others.

    Did they even question the biological kids if the other kid was trying to hurt them that badly? If that's true then I would have sent him to a different home too. It's better for everyone involved and in the report it even says all kids involved seemed happy and healthy. Clearly they're idiots tho for overestimating what they could handle. If you can't handle dogs you will not be able to handle a special needs child.

I cannot even imagine what this poor kid has been through. God bless him and his new family.

    Obviously these parents had no idea what they were getting into. It's probably best that they 'rehomed' their son. Having the responsibility of taking care of all their children was too much for them. I think a home with parents who have the training and experience to provide the child what he needs is much kinder than keeping him in a family which finds him too much to bother with. Not that I don't think they're complete morons.
