custody after death

If custodial parent dies is there any way a step parent can retain custody of kids? Custody was taken away from biological mom on terms of inappropriate conduct, mental health, attempted suicide, and risky lifestyle. Biological mom was awarded by father every other weekend and she rarely keeps in touch with the kids.

If my husband died would there be any chance in me retaining custody in his stead so the kids would not have to leave their home, school, family, and friends while still allowing Biological mom visitation?
