Adoption and GenderAccording to Families Thru International Adoption, in most countries, boys and girls are both available for adoption. In China more than 97% of the children adopted are girls, but boys are available. In India most of the children adopted are girls but the percentage is not as high as China. In Brazil, Russia, Vietnam, and Guatemala the adoptions are about divided equally between boys and girls.

Note that at the time of this research (2004) Vietnam was closed to the US for adoption of Vietnamese children. This is alleged to only be temporary.

Addendum to the above post: Vietnam now (as of summer 2005) has boys and girls available for adoption.

This is a difficult question to answer. It would depend on how many girls are of an available age in India. In India, arranged marriages are common, so many girls may already be betrothed to someone and not available for dating.

The grandparents have no right to the child, only the parents can decide about adoption. If she does not want custody the father can get it.
