Because there are some problems in implying that adoptive parents are either bad (in the AbusiveParents variety) or unnecessary/useless (the GeneHunting variant), many adoptees have a better deal. They're adopted. They know they're adopted--if [[ObliviousAdoption not right off the bat]], then it gets revealed to them that they are. Their reaction is... not to care. Oh, sure--maybe they care at first. Maybe they spend some time wondering about their birth parents, their origins, and where they ''really'' come from, but after some thought, they come to one conclusion: No matter who they were born to, they know who cared for them when they were sick, who helped them when they were down, and, most importantly, who loved them. [[ThePowerOfLove When love's in play]], the truth becomes obvious: Those who love them are their ''real'' family, blood be damned. Usually the kid will eventually tell the parent that, throw in a hug and SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments are made as their bond grows stronger.

** ''Kung Fu Panda'' starts out with Po being [[ObliviousAdoption Obliviously Adopted]] with Mr. Ping, with their relationship so lovingly strong that the subject of parentage never came up. ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'' has Po getting memory flashbacks that drive him to confront Mr. Ping to finally confirm that he is adopted and the panda is feeling rather ambivalent about it. However, by the end of the story, Po comes to realize that despite what he learns about his past, the fact remains he is truly Mr Ping's son in every meaningful way outside of biology and makes a point of telling him that. [[spoiler: Ironically, his biological father is revealed to be alive immediately afterwards.]]

* ''FanFic/AdoptedDisplaced'', a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' multi-crossover series: Every single one of the Equestrian protagonists finds a new, loving family in the world they've been taken to.



* ''FanFic/BadFutureCrusaders'' has both a heroic and a villainous example: Apple Bloom was adopted and raised by a zebra couple after her hometown was destroyed, while [[BigBad Twilight Sparkle]] raised the orphaned Dinky Doo and Rumble as her CoDragons.
* In ''Fanfic/BetterOffNotKnowing'', the implied biological daughter of [[spoiler:[[ArcVillain Zaheer]] [[UnholyMatrimony and]] [[TheBrute P'Li]]]] is occasionally [[TellMeAboutMyFather curious]] about her [[HugeSchoolgirl unusual height]] and her [[NoInfantileAmnesia distant memories]] of being [[SeasonalBaggage unseasonably cold]], but nonetheless draws a distinction between "[[GoodParents her parents]]" and the (unknown [[DramaticIrony to her]]) "people who'd brought her into the world."



* In ''FanFic/BrideOfDiscord'', Applejack and Spike adopt two earth ponies, Cinnamon Stick and Cinnamon Roll, thinking that it isn't possible for them to have a biological child. [[spoiler: They're wrong.]]
* The A.I. named Cole Anderson to Neo and Smith in ''Fanfic/BringingMeToLife'', after being abandoned in the Matrix by his machine parents.



* It's hard to say if either is particularly happy, but in ''FanFic/DiariesOfAMadman'' Navarone clearly loves his adopted daughter and vice versa.
* ''FanFic/TheDifferentverse'': Coco, by the Apples. Spike, by Twilight after she hatched him. And Scootaloo, who's been raised by her aunt since she was a year old.



* ''FanFic/TheEquestrianWindMage'': A major sign of [[HeelFaceTurn how far Vaati has come]] is when, upon finding out how Scootaloo's [[AbusiveParents drunken asshole of a father has been treating her]] immediately takes her in as his ward. And after killing said drunken asshole (albeit in self-defense after the latter attacked him during a chewing out), he quickly adopts her, making her happier than she's ever been.



* In the ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' fic, ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8751000/1/Guardian-of-Light Guardian of Light]]'', the main character Helen, [[spoiler: Pitch's biological daughter,]] has been happily adopted by the Bennett family.



* Another ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' fic called ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8807521/1/Lullabies Lullabies]]'', written by the same author, has the two Bennett children, Jamie and Sophie, happily adopted by the Guardians after their mother dies in a fire.
* Stories in the ''FanFic/MoreThanMyFriend'' series of ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' fanfics are about Mac after being adopted by Frankie due to being orphaned. He considers her his older sister.



* At the end of the ''Film/StarTrek'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9694363/1/Safe-and-Sound Safe and Sound]]'', Lucille Harewood is adopted by Khan. Despite the fact that he got her father killed, gave her the augment abilities which caused a lot of trouble, she sees good in him after spending time with him and his crew.
* Fanfic/SavageSkies has Dawn Lightwing be adopted by Fluttershy. Interestingly, it's generally agreed that is more for emotional stability then actual childrearing, as Dawn is more than capable of living on his own but has a tough time reintegrating into Equestrian society.
