I think Orphan Black is a great example of a mix of a found/real/cloney-ish family. With deep connections, trust and conflicts in between. With people, who are biologically related, who are clones, who are foster family, who are found and friends. And with Sarahs ability to have a daughter, despite being a clone, as a main point throughout the show and them defending her daughter as one of the things that brings and holds everybody else together, when there is conflict between them.
