youtuberA US YouTuber recently announced her family 'rehomed' a 4-year-old boy allegedly suffering autism after he was adopted from China three years ago, which has outraged some online commentators. The Chinese civil affairs authority of the boy's home region said it would confirm the case.
 

Myka Stauffer, a YouTuber influencer, and her husband James have sent Huxley, an orphan with special needs the couple had adopted in October 2017 from Southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, to adoption agencies.
 

"From the updates we've gotten from the adoption agency [it's] like they were able to place him in what they felt was literally the perfect match," Myka Stauffer said in tears in a Tuesday video on her personal YouTube channel, which had 716,000 subscribers as of press time.

James Stauffer said in the video that "When Huxley came home there was a lot more special needs that we weren't aware of, in that we were not told."
 

But the employee in Guangxi noted that before adoption, the civil affairs department would truthfully provide documents about the children's condition. "We will not hide the real conditions… If the adoptees found they could not accept, they should not adopt."
 

Videos on the family's vlog channel, Stauffer Life, have all been removed as of press time. Apart from Huxley, the couple has four biological children.

"Does this mean Huxley been abandoned another time? He was so small and had been trying so hard to progress… I had thought the parents could accompany him forever," a Bilibili netizen said.
 

Americans adopted 81,637 children from the Chinese mainland from 1999 to 2018, according to the Bureau of Consular Affairs under the US Department of State. Among them, 84.5% are female.
 

网红育儿博主领养中国残障男孩,赚足人气和金钱后弃养

抚养孩子从来就不是容易的事情,尤其当孩子有缺陷的时候。但如果父母真的不堪负荷,选择放弃孩子呢?这周,美国一位育儿YouTuber因为决定出养有严重自闭症的养子,引起了网友的挞伐。
 

Myka Stauffer是一位拥有71万订阅的妈妈型美国YouTuber,育有5个孩子的她,频道以分享亲子教养、妈妈家事技巧而出名,从如何带孩子们确立生活规范、帮忙做家事,到整理收纳技巧、美容保养,全职妈妈的生活,她的频道几乎无所不包。
 

这个家庭特别的是,除了Myka亲生的四个孩子外,其中一个中国裔小男孩Huxley,是Myka和丈夫James在2017年时透过领养机构WACAP收养的养子。
 

为了收养Huxley,除了准备领养的相关文件和手续外,她还阅读了许多相关书籍、接受培训、向其他三个大孩子做了许多心理建设,准备迎接新家庭成员,也多次在YouTube上分享申请领养的心路历程,做了整整一年的准备后,他们全家千里迢迢到了中国,接走当时2岁半的他,为他取名Huxley。

然而在实际收养他后,Myka夫妇才发现,其实Huxley远比他们所知道的严重,照顾他并不是容易的事情,而且他的实际情况和领养机构向他们揭露的并不一致,他在未出生前便已经罹患胎内中风,还有三级自闭症、以及感觉处理失调。
 

然而有网友注意到,2019年底到2020年初时,Huxley已经从Myka的频道消失,只剩下其他四个孩子,许多网友开始提出质疑,甚至开了专门的IG账号试图追踪真相、逼Myka出面。
 

Huxley从网路上失踪了接近半年,直到5月27日Myka上传才了一支影片,沉痛地表示,他们「不得已」必须出养Huxley。
 

但对比Myka过去在IG和YouTube上呈现出的,却让网友相当愤怒,「Huxley是很棒的孩子,他的情况其实并不需要过度的照护,而是维持包容和耐心。」
 

而在最新的这支影片中,Myka哭着表示,自己是个500%失败的母亲,他们无法给予Huxley所需要的,同时也说,生活有99%的困难和挣扎是藏在影片背后,无法呈现的,而一直没有说出Huxley的近况是顾虑到他的隐私,目前他已经被另一个受过医疗训练的家庭收养,过得非常好。
 

虽然Myka的影片和IG上充满打气和支持的留言,然而更多网友并不买单,因为当初在Myka和James刚开始申请领养手续时,他们已经陆续以此为主题拍片,还在片中为领养募款,收养后更以他拍摄许多影片,获得YouTube广告分润,根本是利用他来敛财,赚够了就把他扔到一边,简直是把他当成宠物。
 

不管Myka和James到底是不是只为了赚钱利用Huxley、是不是真的无力扶养他,最大的受害者还是才渐渐适应新家庭和异国文化,就再度被抛弃的Huxley。
