I have always loved him and I want to adopt him

Dear Abby: I am thinking about asking my step-daughter “Gwen” (37 years old with a husband and three children) if she would like to adopt me. I married her mother when Gwen was 2. We divorced at the age of 8 or 9, so we had been out of touch for about 25 years.

Gwen really dislikes her father. Her mother and I have connected things together so much that we have gone on many holidays together. Gwen has been with both.

We have a special bond that first time I met him. He was a terror, and his mother, grandmother and the rest of the family had originally abandoned him. But we clicked. I was patient with him, and we became close.
