My daughter is 2.5 years old, her biological father has not made contact since I told him I was pregnant. I was 2 months pregnant. I've been married to my husband three years come October, and he wants to adopt her. Is it possible to do without contacting the biological father? I don't want this to be a hassle at all for my husband, he's such an amazing father and deserves to have that right, I mean he's the only dad she's ever known!

You need to check with an attorney for laws in your area. It is not about personal preference. File, get the adoption done, regardless and then go on being a wonderful famil.

In addition to what Ev said, the BD can give up his rights if he wants to. Just because he hasn't been in contact doesn't mean won't.
I would suggest talking to a lawyer and making sure you go about it the legal way.
I also agree with telling her that Dad isn't her real Dad. She has every right to know.
