My son is 12 , his biological father chose to stop seeing him when he was 6 years old. I tried for a few years to find him but never had any luck. I finally realized that it's not my job to make him a parent.
I have since married an awesome man, loves my son and treats him like his own.
My or I should say our son even calls him Dad. We thought about adoption but then we don't think his bio-father should get out of his responsibility financially.
My son has said from time to time that he would like to have the same last name as all of us and that got me thinking...I have tried to contact his bio-fathers family and they don't show any interest in our son. So I have been doing some research. As far as I can tell I have to go in fill out the papers and petition the court .
Does anyone here have any experience with this, or been in a similar situation? If so I would love any input...
