I've come to this topic because me and my husband are planning to have only one kid in the future and i don't know if it would be a boy or a girl, but if i we're to choose maybe it would just be a boy. Since we can't pick then we will just accept what ever God gives us as long as it is healthy and without any defects or ailments. I know my husband would like if it's a boy, For me, it doesn't really matter. How about you? do you want to have a boy or girl if you can only have one child? why?

i would want a boy for the sake of keeping my family in the world since my brother only had 1 girl and he cant even see her so when i grow up and have a kid i would like to have a boy but i would really try on having two kids but a boy would do but like claire has long has its healthy with no defects or anything wroung with him/her then i will be fine with it

If there was only one choice, I would have wanted a boy. I happen to like boys, I get along with boy babies more than I do with girls. Also the part about what God would give us, my father was the only boy and therefore girls would be natural so if I had had a boy I would have been sure it was a miracle from God.

Well when I found out I was pregnant I wanted a girl and prayed that I would have a girl. I even bought the things when I was 4 months pregnant dresses and all! My mother thought I was crazy but the ultrasound after that told me it was a girl so I got my wish!

Hello there. I do not have a preference too. I just hope for the child to be healthy, filial, obedient, honest and caring. I think that's more important than the gender of the child.

I would like to have a girl... I don't know why. Maybe because I have older brother and I'm notin a good relationship with him and I knowhow many problems he has made to my mother so I want to avoid it in the future? Well, maybe it's stupid but still I think that girls are better xD

To me is a difficult question because I love boys and girls the same. I have two boys and I'm very happy ,but if I had girls it would be fine too.

i actually have 5 children - 3 girls + 2 boys. (and, i thank god for this!) but if i were to have only one child- it does not really matter if it was a girl or a boy... in my country, some say girls are much easier to look after - they are as active, as naughty as boys... i dont think so. my girls are as active, as creative, as naughty as their brothers. in fact, i think my elder son (my 2nd child) werent as naughty as his younger sisters are now.... the important thing is that we love them with all our heart, care for them, protect them.... teach them to love God, to do good, to respect others... and hope they will learn to love you as much, and care for you as much as we all grow older..

for me a boy, but anyhow what god will give us we have to accept it! even it is a healthy or anything we must accept it. it is our child. There is a purpose for why god only give us only 1 child or anything. just know how to accept them.

although it would be a change of pace to have a boy as I have 3 girls I would not trade any of them for anything I have always beleived that you cant pick and choose having a kid isnt window shopping you get what you get and love it.

if i would have a child I would really like a girl because i want to shop nice cute girl's dresses. I think it would be really fun, and in my opinion girl babies are cuter, hihi....

I would have a girl, if only to counteract all the people who don't value girls. Female infants are often aborted or killed after birth in many parts of the world. Even in the United States, more people prefer a boy as you can see from the posts above. How sad that girls are so undervalued.
