Hello there:

 

if the biological father is known, the biological father will have to be informed of the adoption, even though his name is XXXXX XXXXX the birth certificate. Also, as part of the adoption process, your grandson will have to be evaluated by a court investigator to make sure that he can give the child a good home. Other than that, everything else is just getting approval by the court.

 

Let me know if I may be of further assistance. Thank you.
