Ty Little Miss , Couldn't tell you where her father is, But he never been in her life at all. I raised her by myself. Then married a great man and father to his kids and mine. But i will contact a lawyer and see what to do.

And since she is an older child, I would out right talk with her and see if she wants to be adopted.

I would contact a family lawyer in your area. I am sure they would know how to handle this situation. Good luck. Do you know who the father is? Because they still may need him to sign over his rights even if he is not on the birth certificate.
