Exodus 2, Was it customary to adopt children?

Question: Was it customary in the old testament to adopt children? I find it unusual that Pharaoh did not question his daughter on who the father was. I realize God had his hand upon the whole situation I was just curious. Answer: I do not know that it was customary to adopt children, but your question brings up an interesting point about this woman. Pharaoh Amenemhet III had a daughter named Sobekneferu who had no children. It is likely that she was at the river to pray to their god of fertility, and that is when she found Moses. -PJ
