Stephanie Christine Redus, a 29-year-old mother from Houston, Texas, was arrested and charged with advertising for placement of a child after she allegedly posted an ad on Craigslist offering to give away her 3-year-old son, no rehoming fee required.
The Craigslist Ad:
“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.”
Apparently, Stephanie Redus suffers from depression and anxiety, and takes meds for her condition. I can see that. Redus is currently pregnant and is unable to take her meds. Pregnant really? She admitted to placing the ad and also admitted that doing so would alleviate her intense anxiety. Does that work? However, she never intended on giving up her 3-year-old son to some random stranger on Craigslist. It was just for fun. She responded to a few of the inquiries and lied about it to the police. Of course she did, she crazy.
