Can a 20-year-old be adopted by the man who raised her and has been a father to her all her life?

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.
