Yes, my AS is the 5th child from my cousin. All 5 have been adopted by family. My parents adopted #3 And #4. We were having a hard time conceiving so When my parents were asked to take #5, they suggested me And my dh do instead.

 My husband's parents did fostering for a while.

I have an aunt and uncle on my mom's side who adopted 2 boys.

I had an aunt and uncle on my dad's side who adopted 2 boys and 1 girl.

No I am the first living person in my family to adopt.  My great grandfather was adopted by his step dad but that is the extent of that.  My aunt gave up 2 of her kids and we got to see how open adoption worked but the parents cut off contact with us.
