yes and no. yes being you can be left out of the will the the chose of the person who wrote the will. no being if he/she leaves money of property to you or if he/she leaves money or property to the family of which you were adopted since being adopted means he/she was your legal parental guardian in every way by law. the part I'm not sure about is when an adopted minor, under 18, from and single guardian receives an allowance of money from set deceased guardian that they can't touch till they become an adult because once with the single guardian is gone the sole member of the immediate family is the adopted child who on his 18 birthday is an adult and no longer a dependent of set deceased guardian. the point is in wills make sure they use your full legal name.
