A 29-year-old mother who suffers from depression and anxiety says she
placed a public ad offering to give her 3-year-old son up for adoption
because she was off her meds, according to Houston police.
Stephanie Christine Redus was charged with advertising for placement of a child; a misdemeanor.
Police ran across a Craigslist ad seeking a good home for a 3-year-old.
The posting read “Hi. I’m trying to adopt out my 3yr old son. I’m not
in a good place in my life and don’t feel like I can care for him
properly but I don’t know where to start. If you or know anyone who is
interested in caring for him please let me know. I’m a single mom and
can’t do this. Thanks, Desperate.”
