Ok I have a question but it will be best answered if I tell my story I believe so here it is...

When I was 4 months pregnant I left my sons biological father. At 8 months pregnant I started a dating new guy. My son was born in May 2009 (he is now 25 months) and my boyfriend has raised him since the day he was born. The biological father has only seen my son the day AFTER he was born and has never once come back around. He completely abandoned him!! He didnt sign the birth certificate, my son has my maiden name. And I never asked for child support for many of my own reasons. So daddy, which is my boyfriend, would like to adopt my son! We are planning on getting married and immediately starting the adoption process then. However, I have briefly talked to a lawyer and he informed me that all I really had to do was have my boyfriend sign the b.c. and that it should go through. Something about that just doesnt sound legal to me, so I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this enough to give me some help. I can answer any questions and would love feedback. Thanks
