Why did the locator spell work for Bonnie in season 2 when she used Jeremy's blood?

Bonnie said the spell requires the blood of someone biologically related. However, in a previous episode Stevan confessed to Elana that she is adopted and is not a Gilbert. So how would the spell work if Jeremy and Elana are not in fact biologically related?

Elena and Jeremy are not brother and sister, true. However, they are cousins.

Elena is the biological daughter of Isobel Flemming and John Gilbert. When Isobel was about to give birth, she went to Grayson's office for help (Grayson was John's brother). She fled after giving birth and Grayson and Miranda took Elena in. Two years later, Miranda gave birth to Jeremy.

Yep, they're cousins. That confused me at first until I thought about it for a second. Their fathers were brothers.
