If the child didn't gel with the family or didn't attach to the parents. Is it ever okay to give back an adopted child?

Yes apparently children are like pets from the pet store. So it's totally fine to just toss a fucking child away when they're not immediately part of the family.8

In most cases where adopted children have been given back, it has been due to severe psychological disorders where the child became a physical danger to the parents and/or other family members. I've read some pretty horrendous cases where the children have been really physically abusive especially to the younger children in the household. I've heard of sexual abuse cases where the child, usually an older child, was molesting and or raping family members. I've heard of children burning down houses and killing pets. You name it.
If that were a biological child, obviously you would have no where to give them up to, as in an adoption agency, but for your safety or that of the rest of the family, a parent may send them to a mental facility or even jail if warranted. I don't think it's any different giving up the adopted child or a troubled biological child to an authority that can handle them. There literally comes a point where you are not equipt in either situation to handle the needs of that child. It's a tough choice, but if they are hurting and abusing others, you can no more allow the rest of your family to suffer than to allow that child to further cause their suffering. In those cases, I whole heartedly believe that it is okay.1
