You can add the adoptive father as another spouse for the actual mother. If you click edit on either father it allows you to chose non-biological for the father where it says edit family.

But doing this will not display the step father on the profile page of the adopted son. Place the birth father in the father field. Link to the adoptive father in the bio.
Oh, ok I get it now. In order to display the adoptive father, you'll have to remove the birth father and add the adoptive father and under edit family change it to non-biological.
That will make it look like the adopted father is the birth father when displaying pedigree charts. There may be other display ramifications as well. I use the mother and father fields for biological relations.

It wont let have both fathers, everytime it will cancel the other one out. It doesnt matter, non Biological or confirmed relationship.  it would be better for our profiles be linked through wiki and not in Bio because we bear the stepfathers last name.

I was born Belskey even though I have no DNA.  My WIKITREE ID is belskey-1 and it almost doest seem right for the first belskey on wikitree and I have 0% BELSKEY DNA. This is why I want to also connect with my step grandfather along with my dads birth father in my tree.
