Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.

Yes, since he is an adult, as long as he is mentally competent, if he consents to being adopted, there is nothing that would legally prevent you from entering into an adult adoption to make him legally your son in the same standing as a biological child.

.

This would sever his legal relationship with his bio parents and would make you his legal parent.
