Q: Can adopting parents specify the gender of the child to be adopted?

A: No! Our families often work with a pregnant woman for months, and the pregnant woman becomes very attached to a particular adoptive family. Because gender testing has no guarantee and because of FIA's commitment to compassionate adoption, FIA's approved adoptive parents are not allowed to specify gender.
