Obamas Father Considered Adoption

“Documents have surfaced that Barack Obama’s parents considered putting him up for adoption before he was born. When questioned by immigration officials, Barack Hussein Obama, the President’s father, claimed that his wife, Ann Dunham, was making arranging to give the baby up for adoption through the Salvation army, according to the documents.

Obamas Father Considered Adoption

Immigration officials, concerned about his “”playboy ways”", were questioning him about his marital status when he applied for a visa extension.The officials were suspicious that Mr. Obama had more than one wife, which could lead to deportation. Mr. Obama falsely told them that he had divorced his Kenyan wife, the mother of his two children.

During the interview, on April 12th, 1961, Lyle H. Dahling, an administrator at the Honolulu office of the INS noted “”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”".

The immigration forms in question were obtained by Boston Globe reporter Sally Jacobs, through a Freedom of Information Act request. She has recently written a book entitled “”The Other Barack, The Bold and Reckless Life of President Obama’s Father”", which is due to be released on July 12th.

In an excerpt from the book, the author says that it isn’t clear whether Mr. Obama was being truthful when he told the officials about having his son adopted. The immigration forms included contradictory information, and certain questions regarding his marital status had not been completed. Mr. Obama’s statement is also contradictory to the feelings of Ann Dunham, who was said to be excited about the future with her husband and baby, according to a family member.

Former White House press secretary, Robert Gibbs, when interviewed by Ms. Jacobs, said that President Obama was “”absolutely convinced”" that his mother hadn’t discussed adoption with the Salvation Army. That being said, he admitted in his memoir “”Dreams from My Father”" that his mother may have considered adoption, another claim that Dunham’s family and friends have denied.

When asked for a comment, the White House did not respond.”
