Punctuation is your friend. A notary is useless. Your cousin can certainly allow the baby to live with anyone she chooses. If you are interested in adopting the baby, you really, really, need to consult an attorney to guide you through the process.

In any future posts, please make an effort to use something that resembles proper capitalization and punctuation.  Doing so will make it easier for others to read and understand what you write.

I assume you mean the person your cousin assumes is the father.  Unless she and this man are married, there's no way for paternity to be established until the child is born (at least no practical way).  Of course, maybe this man was your cousin's only sexual partner, but anyway.

A notary would be about as useful as a paleontologist.  If you're looking to adopt the child, then you should consult with a local attorney who handles adoptions.  If you're not looking to adopt, then you'll have to contact the local social services agency.
