HAPPY: Obama Sr. with a young President
A NEW BOOK claims that President Obama’s father wanted to put him up for adoption.
In startling revelations made in The Other Barack: The Bold and Reckless Life of President Obama's Father, author, and Boston Globe journalist, Sally Jacobs claims that Obama Sr. reportedly told federal immigration officials that he and his wife were planning on putting their unborn son into the care of the State after officials became concerned that Obama Sr. had more than one wife.
Questioned by the University of Hawaii’s foreign student adviser, Obama Sr., who was in the United States on a foreign student visa, is said to have told the officials that he had divorced his wife in his native Kenya and that although his new wife, Ann Dunham, was five months pregnant with Obmama Jr., they intended to put their child up for adoption.
According to a memo of a conversation between Obama Sr. and Lyle H. Dahling, an administrator at the US Immigration and Naturalization Service, the pair had made arrangements “to give the baby away.’’
It said: “Subject (Obama Sr.) got his United States citizen wife (Dunham) ‘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,’’
Family members say they never heard any mention of adoption.
