However, on Wednesday, Stauffer revealed that Huxley would be going to a "new forever home" after discovering he had additional medical needs beyond his autism and a brain cyst.

Others have dug up old Instagram images of Huxley in which Stauffer writes "I couldn't imagine a day without you", and "I wouldn't trade him for anything", with the latter being a sponsored post for a baby laundry detergent company.

Stauffer and her husband, James, posted a YouTube video titled "An update to our family" to their channel Tuesday that caused outrage online: They've chose to "rehome" their adopted 4-year-old son, Huxley.

"After multiple assessments, after multiple evaluations, numerous medical professionals have felt that he needed a different fit in his medical needs, he needed more", Stauffer said. "He needed more", Stauffer says while fighting back tears in the video filmed in the couple's bed. After Huxley's adoption in October 2017, her YouTube subscribers reportedly doubled overnight.

She went on, saying that Huxley has been with his new family for a few months: "He is thriving".

She outlined her initial hesitancy to a special needs adoption. "Before we knew it, we were open to nearly every special needs in the book".

In a video uploaded to YouTube, Myka and James explain that Huxley has special needs that they can't address.

Detailed updates on Huxley's developmental progress were included, as well as clips of him.

"And it started getting worse and worse", she told Moms.com in June 2019. I don't want to sugar coat anything. That's my personality. I'm a perfectionist. And I'm still working through all of it.

The family has posted several monetized videos and sponsored Instagram posts with Huxley in the time he lived with them, including an entire series on Stauffer's adoption of Huxley in China.

The Ohio couple said they won't go into detail about why they chose to find a new home for Huxley to protect his privacy.

"Do I feel like a failure as a mom?" she complained.

"In coming to know our clients we know they are a loving family and are very caring parents that would do anything for their children", their legal team said in a statement published by People.

After the couple discussed their decision, judgement came swiftly.

In July 2016, the couple announced they planned to adopt a toddler from China, with plans to adopt another one from "Uganda or Ethiopia". "That poor sweet little boy".

Throughout the adoption process Stauffer was fully aware of the extent of her former son's needs and said that in 2017 - before adoption - she was made aware that the child was "profoundly developmentally delayed".

One person raged: "She adopted a child for views and then got rid of him and treated him like a brand deal".

A change.org petition was launched, calling on YouTube to remove the monetised videos featuring Huxley.
