    Answered . The easiest way to begin the process of the child’s stepmother adopting the child is to obtain consent from the child’s mother. However, if consent cannot be obtained the adoption by a stepparent is still possible but you will have to jump through more hoops to get to the ultimate goal. This is a situation I highly advise you seek the advice of an attorney or inquire whether legal aid may be able to assist you.

    Answered . Mr. Pulayya's answer is directly on point. The simplest way to commence the adoption is to obtain consent from the biological mother. If consent cannot be obtained, the adoption is still possible but much more involved and complicated.
