The couple said unspecified behavioural issues from Huxley had made life too difficult for the family, which includes four other children.
Content on the couple's YouTube account The Stauffer Life has now been deleted.
Many felt the couple who had 3 biological children of theirs,would not have given up any of their own kids if faced with the same situation.I'm afraid,i completely agree with them.
It is so unfair the way they have turned that poor little boy's life upside down.Imagine the poor thing will now have to get used to another family,after having bonded with James and Myka and their children.Who knows what damaging effects this can have on Huxley?
The couple began sharing videos about their family life in 2014 and Mrs Stauffer's own YouTube channel Myka Stauffer grew to more than 700,000 subscribers this year.If you know about social media,you will realise how big this numbers of subscribers can change your fortune financially.We are talking big numbers.And to think either James or Myka could have convinced the other that they cannot do this to Huxley,shows me how alike they are.Selfish and not very good people.
Why can another family take care of them and you can't?Why rehome Huxley with another family?It's not as if they were told by the social services that he has to be in hospital or could not live with a family.They actually gave him to another family.After he gave them fame and fortune.
"Extremely depressed reading about the influencer who raised funds to adopt a son, made this her 'brand,' discovered he has special needs, secretly rehomed him, " wrote journalist Sophie Ross on Twitter.
Adopted children "aren't a dog you adopted from the pound that you get to return in 14 days if they aren't a good fit... gross", commented another Twitter user, one of thousands to post negative reaction.
In July 2016 they announced plans to adopt a toddler from China, and that they were considering adopting a second from "Uganda or Ethiopia".
