I have a gorgeous 2 and a half year old boy whos 'biological' dad (i hate saying real dad) never has had anything to do with him.
When Jack was born he saw him a few times, then pretty much gave up.
I am with a beautiful man, who i met when jack was 6 months, and we started calling him dad about 4 months ago.
My child has had my last name, but we have just decided to change his last name to my partners.
Im not sure how to do this legally, but for now (as we dont have to proove anything by birth certificate) we will just uses my partners on forms and at daycare. To us he is Jacks real dad.
i hope we never have to tell him! I know eveyone says to tell them when they are 11 or 12, and then some people say to wait, i guess you will just no when or if to tell them?
Anyways, sorry im rambaling!!, but i want to know how we can keep his bio father out of the picture for good. i am worried that everything will go well for a few years, and then he will turn up and want something to do with him. and that would break my partners heart. He loves jack as his own son.
There is no father listed on the birth certificate as he wouldnt sign it with JAck having my last name.
anyone know what to do?? or about adoption in QLD?
Thanks so much
