adopted-away/adopted-in

Two terms often used to identify adopted persons in legal matters, usually in regard to inheritance questions. "Adopted-away" refers to a child in reference to the family of the birthmother; an "adopted-in" child is one who has entered a family via adoption. Adoption practitioners find these terms to be negative and prefer to avoid them altogether.
