Adoption.org states that when a child is adopted, the original birth certificate is stored away with a state file of the adoption record. A new birth certificate is then issued identifying the adoptive parents. This is the same process even for stepchildren who have been adopted. The adoption certificate serves as a temporary document given to the adoptive parents, which remains in place until the new birth certificate has been received, according to Adoption.org.
