A new Gallup poll found that Americans certainly have a gender preference...and it's for boys. The poll posed the question: Suppose you could have only one child. Would you prefer that it be a boy or a girl? The poll results found that 40% of respondents would want a boy, as compared to just 28% who would want a girl. Twenty-six percent of respondents said they didn't care or didn't have a preference, and 6% didn't have an opinion or were uncertain. And, according to the poll, it's the men who cause the preference for a boy to predominate. When separated by gender, a slightly greater percentage of female respondents would want a girl (33% would prefer a girl, 31% would prefer a boy). However, there was a huge disparity in the men's responses. Forty-nine percent of men would prefer a boy, while only 22% of men would prefer a girl. This same poll has been conducted ten times since 1941 and every single time, a preference for a boy predominated. In fact, the results of this poll aren't that far off from the results of the very first Gallup gender poll in 1941. I find this so interesting. We adopted our children, and the general preference number that floats around in the adoption world is 80%. But it's an 80% preference for girls. I had no idea that was the case and when we first began the process, I expressed my preference for a girl. When I learned of the great disparity (and particularly from the country we selected for our adoption), we immediately switched to no preference. Thank goodness, because we adopted the most amazing little boy ever born. Now that I have one child of each gender, I feel so lucky to experience parenting a boy and a girl. I can honestly say that if I were to lose my mind and have more children, I would be so happy to have either a boy or girl -- no preference. Babies are blessings, no matter the gender.

What do you think? Do you have a gender preference?
