* ''Literature/TheSecretGarden'' doesn't start out with a happy adoption, as miserable sour 10-year Mary is sent to her only living relative, her uncle, after the death of her parents. Her uncle has little interaction with Mary, outside of doing his duty to his dead wife's sisters's memory. However, after everyone is healed by the events of the story, Mary, her cousin Colin, and her uncle all become closer as a family and this is the assumed conclusion for them.

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': Carrot Ironfoundersson is a human who was raised by dwarf parents. He ''is'' a dwarf, in spite of being born a human and standing over six feet tall, and he always writes home to his parents to tell them about his day and ask how the latest mine shaft is going. Even dwarfs who have never heard of his clan recognise him as a dwarf, since being a dwarf is more of a matter of culture rather than of species. [[spoiler:It's also implied that his birth family sprang from the dethroned kings of Ankh-Morpork. Implied much in the same way that it's implied that the sun is warmish.]]

* Subverted with Kendall Hart on ''Series/AllMyChildren'' and Carly Roberts of ''Series/GeneralHospital''. Though they were adopted by otherwise good and loving people, their adoptive parents keep their adoptions from them until each girl inadvertently learns about it. Kendall and Carly feel displaced and like they don't belong in their adoptive families, resulting in their bitterness over their adoptions and their longing to meet their birth mothers, yearning for their approval and a place to belong. Hurt and embittered by their adoptions, both girls begin to resent their respective mothers over it and lash out. However, Kendall and Carly eventually develop close, loving relationships with their biological mothers, come to appreciate their loving adoptive parents and how lucky they are to have two mothers each, and (in Kendall's case) her adoptive father's role in her life.

* In the children's novel ''Nooks and Crannies'', this is true for several of the child characters, though the main protagonist, Tabitha Crum, is most definitely ''not'' this. None of them, however, actually know that they're adopted until it's revealed to them within the events of the book. Tabitha Crum's adoptive parents are so horrible that they almost make the [[Literature/HarryPotter Dursleys]] look good. They treat her like absolute vermin and the only reason they adopted her in the first place was that they hoped she'd grow up to be pretty so that they could marry her off to somebody rich and become a part of high society themselves. When they decide that she's never going to be pretty, they decide to send her to an orphanage. [[spoiler:It also transpires that they're petty criminals. At the end of the novel, it transpires that she is the granddaughter of a rather wealthy woman, and ends up being happily adopted by her, along with her long lost twin brother.]]

** At the same time, Henry clearly loves Regina. He wants to see her turn away from being the Evil Queen and be a good person. And as the series goes on, Regina legitimately shows she actually wants nothing but the best for Henry and is willing to let him go if he doesn't want to be with her.

* In the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon version of ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'', Herc's mortal parents seem to fade from the picture once they tell him he was adopted, and discovers he's the son of Zeus. However, one song about mid-way through the movie shows that he's using his newfound fame to take ''gooood'' care of them, building them an enormous mansion. In the ending, when he triumphantly returns to Earth, they greet him happily as well. Hercules seems to accept both his earthly and heavenly parents as legit. TheSeries had an {{Aesop}} about this, with Herc's Muggle parents showing up at his school for a Parents' Day Thing rather than his godly ones.

** ''Anne of Green Gables'' also subverts this, as Anne tells how she was put in the care of several foster families before the events of the books and how each of these families treated her horribly. Nonetheless, Anne still remembers them as kindly as she can (and is sympathetic to these families since they all were dirt poor). It's because of this and the real possibility that Anne may be adopted by another horrible family if the Cuthberts do not take her that Marilla Cuthbert decides to keep her. Marilla, her brother Matthew, and Anne become a very close and loving family and Anne loves them deeply as her parents.

* Played with in the case of Regina and Henry in ''Series/OnceUponATime''. At first glance, she might appear as a stern but loving mother for her lonely son who has "delusions" about fairy tales. But as the series progresses, while Regina does care for Henry, there is emotional abuse on her part such as where she puts him on therapy to safeguard the curse she had cast, neglected him and threatened his therapist.
** At the same time, though, Henry clearly loves Regina, wanting to see her turn away from being the Evil Queen and to be a good person. And as the series goes on, after the curse is broken, Regina legitimately comes to want nothing but the best for Henry and is willing to let him go if he doesn't want to be with her.

Princess Eilonwy, who comes to live in Caer Dallben at the end of the first book in the series, is essentially HappilyAdopted by Dallben as well.
