YouTuber Myka Stauffer Gave Apology and Disappeared: Where Is She Now?

Is Myka Stauffer back?

The Last Known Activity

Myka Stauffer has remained out of the public eye since her last Instagram post in June 2020. The controversy surrounding the rehoming of her adopted son, Huxley, has left a lasting impact, leading to the deletion of her social media presence and continued public scrutiny.

Stauffer’s most recent Instagram post dates back to June 24, 2020. Known for her family vlogs with husband James, Stauffer has been absent from social media for four years. Both her personal YouTube channel and the family’s channel, “The Stauffer Life,” have been deleted. Meanwhile, James’ “Stauffer Garage” channel remains active, focusing on car flipping, detailing, and cleaning.

Myka Stauffer’s Controversy

This hiatus followed a 2020 controversy where the Stauffers faced backlash for rehoming their adopted son, Huxley, due to challenges in meeting his special needs. The Stauffers and Huxley’s new family have not responded to requests for comment.

In her last Instagram post, Stauffer apologized for the situation, expressing regret for the hurt caused. “I want to apologize first off for the uproar and take full responsibility for all the hurt that I have caused,” she wrote. “This decision has caused so many people heartbreak, and I’m sorry for letting down so many women who looked up to me as a mother.”

Following the decision to seek adoption dissolution, the Stauffers’ lawyers explained that their clients acted on the advice of medical professionals to provide Huxley with the best possible care. The Stauffers hand-selected a family equipped to handle his needs, ensuring the decision did not involve placement in the foster system.


Recently, a docuseries revisited the scandal, featuring clips from Stauffer’s since-deleted videos leading up to their trip to pick up Huxley in Asia. In these clips, Stauffer, a former nurse, claimed she was prepared to parent a child with special needs.
