My daughter is 6 years old. Her father has never been in the picture physically or financially. My wife and I got married and now are wanted to have her adopt my daughter. We were told that in order to do so, we needed to put an order of publication searching for her father. If he does not come forward in 2 weeks of that publication, then my partner has the right to adopt my daughter... is this true? And if so, what steps do I as her mother need to take to make this happen...We do not want her father to have a change of heart and walk into her life after 6 years of disappearance...any advice would help. thanks.
