* Happens in ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'', where, during the New Power story arc, [[spoiler:Taranee]] finds out she's been adopted, as her parents had to give her up when she was a baby when [[spoiler:[[ItMakesSenseInContext magic summoned a meteor from the sky to burn evil vines trying to kill her, burning up the home in the process]]]]. Her adopted parents had planned to tell her later and kept track of where her birth parents are so she could meet them, but [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming she made clear she considers them her real parents]].

* An odd case was referenced in one episode of ''Series/{{Cheers}}''. To account for [[CoolOldGuy Coach]]'s absence towards the end of season 3 ([[AuthorExistenceFailure his actor had died before the end of the season]], he would be explained away as being somehwere. One of these cases was being at a family reunion- and everybody aside from him in the photo is African-American. Turns out, he was mailed an invite to one of their gatherings by accident, and felt it would be rude not to go. Hence, he showed up at more of their family functions, and was considering holding the reunion at his house that year (the family called him "Uncle Whitey").

[[spoiler:She tries to reconcile with her birth mother only to learn AnAesop about how her "real family" is the one who raised her.]]
