بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1353/1085/B=1433)

It is lawful to adopt a child. But one shall not become real relative merely by adoption. When he would grow up he would become mahram and it shall be necessary for your aunt to observe purdah from him. Thus, before he is a grownup she can nourish him.
