Top 5 Reasons Why Girls Are Preferred for Adoption by Parents

If you are a victim of childlessness or simply want to help an orphan find a loving home you may have thought about adopting a child. There are lots of decisions to be made when choosing an agency to help you in this. Among this is whether to go for a boy or girl.

For many years there have been speculations that girls carry preference for adoption at adoption centers than their male counterparts. These fears were confirmed true by a recent study. The report has raised much concern and interest in this age where society is trying hard to harmonize gender equality.

There could be a number of factors contributing to this trend. Here are some of the valid reasons behind the preference over female child:

  • Sex ratio. Generally boys represent a higher number in the current child population as compared to girls. However, this ratio is slightly different among children homes known to accommodate children under the age of 6 years. In most cases, these children homes have been found to have 85 boys for every 100 girls. 
  • For better emotional connect. Majority of the people seeking to adopt feel that it is easier to understand a girl well as compared to a boy. Girls also easily get emotionally attached to their foster parents.
  • Gender Typecasting. There are also gender stereotypes who feel that the girl child will assist in feminine duties like baking, cooking, dressing up etc.
  • To relate better. Very often a couple wishing to adopt, it is the woman who makes the decision and they tend to relate better with fellow females especially if they lack a male role model in their past life.
  • Happiness in raising a daughter. Some couples may already have sons in their family and would like to feel what it would be like to be raising a daughter.
