Adoption Q and A # 10

How does an adoption agency select a child for me? I prefer a fair skinned child.

I'll answer it in the sequence you had asked your question. Adoption agency selects a child based on the preferences that you had mentioned on your initial application. Choosing a child is not like buying vegetables in a supermarket (choosing the best and leaving the rest). They won't place four or five children in front of you to choose the best. Adoption agencies always tries to match your preferences but may not match exactly as you wish. Families will always have the final choice to say "YES" or "NO" to their selection but when you keep refusing for several times, your motives will come into question.

Now coming to fair skinned child, how sure are you that you can make a biological child with a fair skin? What would you do if you could only make a dark skinned child? Throw the child away? I know you won't so why refuse a dark skinned child?
