The woman, Stephanie Christine Redus, of Huffman, near Houston, was freed Tuesday after she posted $1,000 bond on a state charge of advertising the placement of a child, a misdemeanor. She is scheduled to be arraigned in Houston next week.

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

You're allowed to give your child up for adoption, no? What's the scandal here, that she did it on her own without the government's approval? She didn't fill out the necessary paperwork?

Exactly, only now he's going to end up in the hell that is the state foster care system. I call it the crap shoot system. You have about a 1 in 4 chance (I'm being generous) of getting into a loving, caring home.

This is pathetic that they would arrest her for this. She's obviously in a terrible place in life. She wasn't even asking for money for herself, just for a place for her child. That's what you get for stepping on the toes of the multi-billion dollar child trafficking business known as the US child welfare system. How dare she try to make an end run around those caring folks who work for the state and make $8/hour who obviously care far more for her child than she does.

But Redus told investigators she never really intended to give up her son up, saying she was off her depression and anxiety medications at the time.

The reason she was off the medications?

She's pregnant again, according to court records.

Quite an interesting tidbit here........
