Question about adoption

So in Reform Judaism, if a couple who are both Jewish adopt a child (as a 3 day old infant), give that child a baby naming and Jewish name, is that child Jewish? The child was eventually bar mitzvah, but afterwards did not lead a particularly Jewish life, attending synagogue only occasionally.

If it matters: At the time of adoption they were told that the child was born Jewish, but later in life the child discovered that their birth parents were not, in fact, Jewish.
