Can we come up with a different word?

I was using the search feature on a Facebook group I’m in, hoping to find other people in the group who were adopted.  Instead, I found 1 post using the word adopted that was discussing people, and at least 20 talking about “adopting” cats and dogs. I wish there was another word used for the adoption of people. I’m not a dog.


It's lovely to have you here. Please keep comments respectful of the adoptees who read here. "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
