adoptive vs. birth family

Classification: Query
I have a relative who was adopted. She later found her birth family (siblings). I think the adoption was informal. She listed her birth-parents on her marriage certificate but considered her adoptive parents as her family. She became close to her birth siblings however. I don't know how to handle this on a family tree. Who do I list as her parents? Can I list both? Or is it strictly "blood relations"?
