Step Parent Adoption - Deceased Parent

My Step Son lost his birth mother at 11 weeks and my husband has decided it best that I adopt him now that we are recently married.

Given the birth mother is deceased, I am reading that this should be very cut and dry, however the Attorney is stating it is $1500 - $2000 to process!

I have looked at some of the online options such as and, has anyone used these or are they scams?

I realize given the rules of the forum, this may need to be answered in a private message.

I'm actually looking to adopt my 2 stepsons pro se. I have a similar situation where the birth mother is deceased and the father and I are currently married.
We found some 2013 Texas step parent adoption forms right here on this site and I've filled them out. I will go to our county court and find out what else I need then we intend to file.
