My sister and I were talking and she had a concern about the adoption blogs I have introduced her to. She wanted to know why the majority of blogs she has read are about women or couples that are adopting girls. I told her that I really couldn't speak for anyone else, but for me I would be fine with either sex but prefer a girl. She asked why. I let her know that me being a single mother (which she fully understands because she is one) I feel boys need fathers.(Especially Afr Americans, which is how my child will be viewed whether it is from Africa or not) Not to say that girls don't, but I can not teach him how to be a man. I can introduce him to many things, guide him to live right, but I can never take the place of a father.
This got me to thinking, if I really have a call to adopt should it matter what sex the child is? If I was having a child naturally I really wouldn't have a choice. I don't know I really am flip flopping about this subject.
