Most people, especially in the U.S., won''t adopt a 9 year old African American boy who comes from an abusive home. They want a baby who may grow up and have their mannerisms and in most cases look a little like them. An older child will have was if doing things that they learned elsewhere, a newborn, which is what most people plan to adopt, can be taught their values form the start and by the time they are older will already have them.
