Did any U.S. presidents have adopted kids and what were their names?

Yes, several U.S. presidents have adopted kids.

Including Martha Washington’s children that George Washington adopted, there were two others:

Andrew Jackson and Ronald Reagan.

Unlike the trend with celebrities today, adopting kids back then wasn’t in vogue.

We highly doubt the kids adopted by these Presidents were Chinese or of ethnic decent.

  1. Andrew Jackson’s adopted son was indeed ethnic. He was American Indian and was rescued by Jackson after a battle.
