Cohanim and adoption #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari

I was told by my assistant many years ago that when Cohanim adopt
children they (if they are religious) adopt daughters so that there
won't be embarrassment when it comes to the holidays and the Cohanim
go up and bless the congregation.

Hello Yoni, 

i believe you have been ill informed, I am a Katz and one of 2 sons adopted, I imagine it may apply to ultra religious perhaps, but the average would do what they wish, my father also married a divorcee which is a Cohen no no, different folks, different strokes.
He is buried as Kahan Tzedik as that is what he is, but it ends there on that line.
