Why does it reject efile when a dependent's relationship is adopted child?

A client adopted a child during 2020. When I tried to efile the return I received an error that "Adopted child" (one of the options in the dropdown for relationship) isn't a valid e-file relationship.

Don't discriminate. An adopted child is a legal child. So pick son or daughter.

For purposes of the tax program, "adopted child" means you are using an ATIN, rather than an SSN.
