Bio mom help

Short story. I'm stepmom, have been fighting with husband to have bio mom sign son over to us. She's narcissistic and selfish. Recently I found photos from her two other daughters (12 & 15) smoking pot in the home, Mom of course "likes" the photos. My son comes home from her house rambunctious and acting severely neglecting. He screams if I walk 2 feet away and says bio-mom leaves him alone in the car. I don't want him to go back over there but I'm stuck, I don't want her out of his life but I don't want her to ruin him. He's 6, and no i did not birth him but I am Mom. 100% his mother. There is no talking to her because she is always the "victim". . . How do we proceed?

Get a lawyer. Also what Shawnn said about it. You can not force things on others nor force your husband to do anything either. If he is really concerned with this then he has to do this. You can voice your concerns to him all day and night but in the end he has to make that choice you want. Its said that kids end up in hard situations and when someone not related but by marriage tries to do something; they can not. Just be there for this boy. Hug and love him and keep him assured that you do care and love him. Let him know that you are doing what you can for him. But beyond can not do much else.

You cannot force anything. The most that can happen is your husband can request custody review, and supervised visitations for his son, but if she doesn't want to sign her parental rights away, you cannot force her to do so.
