Yes, Im sure he can. Just check with the court system in your county about the procedure. If you are of the state's age of majority, you would not be eligible to be adopted. You can however, have your name changed to that of the person who raised you and also have your birth certificate amended to reflect the change.

Why is Oedipus scared of merope?

He isn't afraid of her, per se. However, it had been predicted by an oracle that Oedipus would kill his father and marry his mother. He had been adopted by Polybus and Merope of Corinth, but he viewed them as his father and mother. He went on to fulfill that prophecy by unknowingly killing his biological father, Laius of Thebes, and solving the riddle of the Sphinx to marry his biological mother Jocasta.
