My girlfriend has a daughter that is almost 4 years old. I've had her since she was 2.She finally got full legal and physical custody of her and the father hasn't been around for about 3 years. I'm the only dad she has ever known, now we have a son together and she is getting older and soon she will figure out the last name issue. I would love to adopt her and make her my daughter legally. Is it possible to adopt her with out getting married to my girlfriend? I don't want to marry her because of the adoption issue I want to marry her when we have money for a wedding, but I love this little girl so much I just want her to know me as daddy till she has to know the truth. Is it possible to adopt her and what do I need to do?
