How to add two sets of parents: for adoptions and for "undocumented events revealed by DNA.

+3 votes
Is there a way to add birth-parents to a family tree without displacing adopting-parents?  Similarly, when DNA reveals an "undocumented event" for an ancestor, how do we add the missing "sperm donor" as an "extra parent"?  If we can only have one set of parents within the WikeTree data structure, do you prefer the genetic parents, or adopted parents?   Are we all-in on DNA now?
