You will need to create five roles for this tag: Adoptee, adopting father, adopting mother, birth mother, birth father.

These sentences work best if you have both birth parents or both adopting parents. You can create a dummy person if you don't. (Use a name tag with name An unknown person or an unknown person, depending on where it will print in the sentence.) I use the name the child was given at birth for the PRIMARY TMG name,and then create a Name-Ado tag (a custom name tag) for the name the child was given at adoption, and then use the Name-Ado name for each tag after that point.

You can put the name change into the memo field of the adoption tag..

For the ADOPTEE:

[:CR:][:TAB:][R:Adoptee] was adopted <[D]> <[L]>. <[R:adopting father] and [R:adopting mother] were the adopting parents. ><[R:birth mother] and [R:birth father] were[RS:Adoptee] birth parents. ><[M]>

For the ADOPTING FATHER:
[:CR:][:TAB:][R:adopting father] <and [R:adopting mother]> adopted [R:Adoptee] <[D]> <[L]>. <[M]>

Example of how it prints:

Bob Jones was adopted 23 Jan 1965 Rutherford County, TN. Robert Smith and Rebekah A. Smith were the adopting parents. James Jones and Sarah Allen were his birth parents. They changed his name to Robert Smith Jr. They picked him up at 7:00 am at the bus station and went out to a nice breakfast afterward.

Robert Smith and Rebekah A. Smith adopted Bob Jones 23 Jan 1965 Rutherford County, TN. They changed his name to Robert Smith Jr. They picked him up at 7:00 am at the bus station and went out to a nice breakfast afterward.

For the ADOPTING MOTHER:
