A person can relinquish parental rights volutarily by filing a petition in the proper court if the information contained allows such actions in accordance with state TPR requirements. Or the court for reasons prescribed in state statutes can permanently terminate parental rights. Both procedures have to be done according to the proper legal procedures simply signing a paper proclaiming such an action is not considered legally acceptable under the laws of the state.

Not until the parental rights of the biological father have been terminated.There are a couple ways to do that:The bio father gives his consent and voluntarily surrenders his parental rights.You go to court and can get them to involuntarily terminate his parental rights; this one is much more difficult: if the bio father has abandoned the child, isn't paying child support, is in jail or is a danger to the child (or something similar), you may have a case, but if he's visiting and paying support you will have to go with the first option.
