President Obama's Father Wanted To Give Him Up For Adoption?
Obama's Father Talked Of Giving Him Up For Adoption
Barack Obama Sr. was planning to give up our nation's president for adoption back in 1961 according to The Boston Globe.
President Obama's father was studying at The University of Hawaii and had an interview with an immigration official who recalled the conversation on April 12th, 1961.
“Subject got his USC wife ‘Hapai' [Hawaiian for pregnant] and although they were married they do not live together and Miss Dunham is making arrangements with the Salvation Army to give the baby away,'' according to a memo describing the conversation with Obama written by Lyle H. Dahling, an administrator in the Honolulu office of what was then called the US Immigration and Naturalization Service.
The president himself admits in his memoirs, “Dreams from My Father," that his mother Ann Dunham did in fact, think about giving him up but his mother's family and friends deny that she ever considered adoption.
Well it all could have turned out very different if they had decided to let little Barack fall into the hands of the system.
