Jason Perkins' answer I think you are asking how a step father can become the child's father if the biological father is not in the picture. I would recommend that you hire an attorney and look into seeing if the biological father would be open to the step father adopting the child.
Peter D. Mlynek's answer If a patent is expired, then whatever is in the patent is generally considered in public domain, meaning, that anyone should be able to use it. There may be some weird exception to this, but that is the whole idea behind patents: the inventor discloses the invention to the society, and return the society lets him go after infringers for a limited time. Once the time expires, it belongs to the society.
