adoptive

Adoptive means that whatever is being discussed got it’s status through adoption. For example, an adoptive parent, adopted his or her child rather than being biologically responsible for the child’s existence. One’s adoptive country is the country that person has become a citizen of as a result of immigration rather than by being born in that country or by being born to citizens of that country.

This is embarrassing. I can’t think of a single witty or pithy thing to say about adoptive, as is my wont in this project. Sorry about that. All of the posts here can’t be winners. Hopefully we’ll get to a good one soon.
