@Shanna777:  The best thing for you to do is research all your state laws. They vary so much just by state it is hard to tell. I have done adoptions (as a social worker) in Arizona and here you can contact a local agenecy to do a homestudy on the family and He would have to get licensed to adopt. But Cali may be differet. Contact an adoption agency and see if they have any advice. They may be able to help you. Good luck!

It looks like you have to seek to terminate the absent father’s parental rights (this would not require his signature as far as I can tell) but it would be best to go to the local law library and ask them for advice on books on the subject specific to California law.
