Marrying an adopted girl

Q: My question is regarding marrying a girl that has been adopted at the age of 5 days but the girl doesn't know about her real father. All the documents supporting her parentage is of her adopted father. So please let me know what Shariah says about marrying her?

A: It is permissible to marry her.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
