Is this the proper way to identify an adopted son?

Fred Duso and his wife Martha (Friend) Duso adopted Sam Sanders prior to having children of their own.  Neither is a biological parent, so I ticked the non-biological circle and added the comment in the biography that Sam was their adopted son.  They are not birth parents, they are only social parents.

Some time in the future someone might discover Sam's birth parents and add them as biological parents, either through source documents or DNA results.I don't know if Sanders was his LNAB, but it probably was.

A second cousin was adopted right from the hospital in about 1910.  I knew she had been adopted, but when I found the birth record it showed both her parents (the ones I knew) as birth parents.  Actually the birth of a stillborn son recorded a few weeks before to the same parents is pretty conclusive evidence that Cousin Collera was adopted, and that agrees with family legend.  Anyway  LNAB may never be found for adoptees in some years and locations.
