Daycare Provider Allegedly Tried to Put Baby in Her Care up for Adoption

Woman Took Baby Four Times to Arkansas

The Stills confirmed they hadn’t put the girl up for adoption and didn’t know that Poindexter had taken the girl to Lincoln, Arkansas at least four times to meet the Partons who wanted to adopt after suffering a miscarriage.

Poindexter first contacted the Arkansas couple through a friend in June and began making arrangements for them to adopt the infant girl who along with a sibling was being left in her care a few days a week.

Poindexter told the Partons she had been given the child to care for and that the baby had been conceived through a rape. She also told them that the mother wanted a “closed” adoption so she wouldn’t know who was adopting the baby, according to the affidavit.

The Arkansas couple began buying things for the baby and even prepping a nursery. Poindexter told Laura Parton via Facebook Messenger that she was “glad” the girl “finally has parents who adore here,” adding that the baby “deserves so much more than she is getting”, according to the affidavit.
