Adoption fees

My name is eric and I'm a two time survivor of cancer. I first got sick in 2004 and again in 2006 I lost my chance to have kids but life saw things differently. In 2013 after moving to Oregon with my wife we got the chance of a lifetime her sister was calling to see if we wanted to adopt the child she was pregnant with as to why she did this I'll keep that private. Of course we said yes and never looked back we've had him for almost four years now and he's the most amazing person ever. Being a dad is an amazing feeling and I'm sure my wife would say being a mother is awesome especially when you thought you'd never get the chance.. we've tried to seek legal help but to no avail as our money we had saved was basically taken by someone claiming to be able to do all the needed paperwork. Well that didn't work out very well and now my son has started preschool and I had to register him with a last name that isn't mine or my wife's ...he's my son no matter what I'm sorry for the long story but basically I need help obtaining a lawyer and I think the amount listed is what it'll take. Anything left over will be donated to the next person asking for the same help I am . Please help show my son that a community of ppl came together to make this possible. Thank you so much for just reading this
