How do I edit my profile to show my adoption details, without abandoning my adopted family

I have finally started the process of searching into my adopted roots, mainly at the encouragement of my adopted mother.  Although I was always aware of my adopted background, I have never really been interested, but my "Real" mother is encouraging me to search out my biological background.  I have today got bare details from the UK giving my CNAB, LNAB and my mother's name.  How is the best way to display these?

I will eventually get a DNA test but as yet, searches of Wikitree, Ancestry and FamilySearch have not given me anything definite, just lots of potential hits.

How wonderful of your 'mother' to encourage you to search for your biological family!!

You basically have two options - have your adoptive parents in your tree, flagged as "Non-Biological", and discuss/link your biological parents in your profile, or the opposite (biological parents in tree and discuss adoptive parents in profile).
