After more than three years of filming their journey to adoption and the updates in Huxley's life, the Stauffer family has decided to rehome their son.
Huxley is a child from China adopted by influencer Myka Stauffer in 2017. Their followers multiplied. Most of these people followed Myka and her family's journey in choosing Huxley and taking care of him. However, just recently, the family is receiving backlash for rehoming their son.
In a video uploaded two days ago, Myka Stauffer and her husband gave an update about their family. The couple explained the process that they had to go through when they decided to have Huxley rehomed. The Stauffer couple was holding back tears as they shared the story of their adoption and the hardships their son experienced.
According to Myka, although they knew that Huxley has special conditions, the documents were not very transparent about his real health condition. Over the years, they discovered that their son needed more intensive medication, which they thought another family could be better.
In the video, Myka admitted that she feels that she failed as a mother. She said, "Do I feel like a failure as a mom? 500 percent."
