My stepson is 5 years old. My husband has had full and sole custody of him since he was 18 months old. When I picked him up from school today he said hi mom to me and it made me feel pretty good. His mom will never be involved in his life again she was a drug addict and is in prison now. She started doing drugs after my husband and her broke up. I'm now pregnant with our second child together.

After reading several replies here and having a talk with my husband we have decided that I will be adopting him. We put in for the adoption on Friday.

How long is bad sentence? A judge can deny the request if bm is against it.

If BM hasn't made contact with her child in the last year, you should be well on your way to being legally Mom. Good luck.

It's been about three years since she has had any contact with him.

Three years? Wow.

How long does the adoption take?

We're in the process now, hopefully not much longer.
