There is very little information given by you to enable me to give you a proper response. However, you should know that having a written document is not the only condition to make an adoption valid. I am assuming you are a Hindu. The Hindu Adoptions and Maintainance Act 1956 lays down the essentials of a valid adoption. Your case has to be analysed in the perspective of this entire piece of legislation, that is the Hindu Adoptions and Maintiance Act. I suggest to purchase a bare act (50 rupees or so) and read it.
