no sure on mother, We are perm legal guardians 12/19/2016 and no support from any of the parents.

Practically, you could leave things status quo since you have power and authority to act as de facto parents. Formally, you can ask the court to approve adoption which on notice to parents and without objection and with consent of the children should be granted. It would be recommended having a family lawyer expedite the application to the court.
