How record adoptions in Reunion

How record adoptions in Reunion

I've just learned that a relative in my file was raised by his uncle.

1. William was born to Julia Clabeau out of wedlock; birth father listed as Joseph Humbert on baptism record.

2. He was raised by Julia's brother Philip Clabeau, and William took the Clabeau surname.

How do I record this in Reunion. I don't see any help for "adoptions" in the Reunion help files.

Thanks!

Enter Williams' information under his birth parents.

Then under the uncle's name click children, add male child from index. In that window find William and drag him from the index to the family card. Go back to the uncles family card and under the edit menu, click children. In that window under status, click adopted.

I hope this helps.
