    Terry White A Stepfather is the replacement husband of your mother who may choose to adopt the children of a biological father who has died. If the biologicial father is alive and your mother remarries or enters a common-law relationship you cannot become a stepchild as you have a living father. In effect only one father can exist any time. The term Stepfather or Step mother is often used incorrectly in these circumstances.
