I am desperately needing some good advice from someone who might have some experience, my sister had her first baby last July, and I have had her since she was 3 days old. My sister knows who the dad is, but did not list him on the birth certificate, he came to see the baby in the hospital but has not been around since. My sister is Bipolar, and drinks all the time. She goes weeks without calling and only sees the baby if I'm at our moms house. My husband and I have two older children, but our whole family loves this baby girl and would love to adopt her. My sister has said she would let us adopt her, but we don't know what to do about the dad. We have added the baby to our insurance bc my sister has no job and no way to pay any dr bills for the baby. She had to sign a legal guardianship for us to add her to our insurance, but it was just one we printed at the library and had notarized. Does anyone have any suggestions of what we can do?
