    I'd say if your a man adopt a boy and if your a woman adopt a little girl. Im a single mother and I have a boy and a girl. Its easier to teach my daughter the ways of a woman but I find myself at times struggling to teach my son. It may be too simple of an answer but I feel like its nice to have a child of your same gender. They become best friend its nice to be able to paint your toe nails with your baby girl or play catch with your boy. Best of luck 😊

      Little girls sometimes like to play catch and little boys sometimes like to have their nails painted. This is the dumbest answer I've ever seen in this category.

    LGBTQ. So little time. So many choices.

    Both domestically and abroad, there is a strong preference for girls, probably due to the perception that girls are "easier." Even with international adoptions from countries like China or India where there is a strong cultural preference for sons, orphanages are still overrun by boys because the demand for girls into adoption is so high. There's a perception among foreigners that those orphanages are full to the brim with girls due to parents abandoning daughters at birth -- but nope. Even with international adoption, if you want a healthy baby or toddler girl, you'll probably be waiting longer than parents who want (or are willing to take) a boy.

    Basically, if you want the costliest, slowest adoption with a high risk of failure due to birth mother changing her mind, set your sights on a healthy Caucasian newborn girl. You'll be paying $25,000-35,000 AT LEAST and likely be waiting for years. If you want a the quickest adoption at low or no cost, then adopt an older black boy, a child with special needs, or a sibling set from foster care.

    If gender matters to you then your not ready to be a parent.

      I agree - gender should not be your first thought.

    Boys are easier to maintain (Don't have to worry about make up and all the other girly things)

    You should go for either a boy or a girl. Stay away from dinosaurs and marsupials.
