Is the brother under age 18?  Were his parents' rights terminated?  Some states have "adult adoption" procedures that may not establish a parent/child relationship.  I haven't see what the court orders say in cases like that.

Her brother is under 18 (13 year old), younger than her  and I read his adoption paper it mention his parents right have been terminated.
