[Taiwanese law question] Does adoption legitimate an illegitimate child under Taiwanese law?

This is a strictly legal question. I'd ideally like a citation to a legal source (Taiwanese or American) of any kind (statute, regulation, law review article, case law, anything).

I want to know if the adoption of a child born to unmarried parents legitimates that child under the law of Taiwan. All of the events take place in Taiwan.

If the answer is "it depends," if the adoptive father is also the biological father, and he is married to a woman who is not the biological mother (both at the time of birth and at the time of adoption) then is the child legitimated by law?

I'm not sure it answers the question exactly, but have you read the CIVIL CODE PART IV: FAMILY on the Ministry of Justice's website? It covers adoption and what is considered legitimate/illegitimate.
