Hey Anon,

One way to do it here on WikiTree would be to have your biological parents listed as your Mother and Father- this way any DNA connections to you would follow the appropriate lines.  Then create profiles for your adopted Mother and Father and siblings and link to them from your biography.

If you don't know who your bio parents are, you can still creat profiles for them as Unknown Unknown - then when you make those discoveries you can replace the Unknown Unknown with real names.

This is my two cents and others may have different ways that they may have done this as well.
