Wonder if he would still be where he is today if that had happened…
According to a new report, President Barack Obama's father had told federal immigration officials back in 1961 that he originally planned to put his son up for adoption before he was born.
Here's a memo that was written by Immigration official Lyle H. Dahling about the conversation he had with Obama Sr.:
“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."
Of course, President Obama's mother Ann Dunham has denied the claims that she ever intended to put baby Obama up for adoption, and her friends & family have been backing her up.
What do U think? Was our president almost put up for adoption?
