First i would like to congratulate you on being a good man, and second I'm pretty sure the bio father would have to sign over his rights in order for you to adopt. I do know that in some states there are abandonment laws so if a bio parent hadn't had any contact with the children after a certain amount of time they automatically lose their parental rights. Look a little more into the laws from where you live to know exactly what you would have to do in order to adopt ! Also, have you tried to contact the bio father to ask him for yourself? Maybe he would give up his rights willingly if he doesn't want to be a father; tell him the least he can do for the child is to let him have a real father since he obviously never was . Good luck honey , and you'll make an excellent daddy!
