No. You may need to serve the mother through "publication." You will have to get the Court's permission to do so. I strongly recommend that you consult an attorney.

No. And if you are thinking of doing an adoption without a lawyer, even most attorneys lack the knowledge to do one, so hire a good adoption lawyer.
A court may approve other means of service, although mail is not one of them.
