Child's best interest over biological father

Since the death of my sister, over a year ago, her two daughters have been living with me and my husband. My sister was never married to the father nor did they live together. The father has never been apart of their lives and showed no interest in the children before or after the death of their mother. The children have been in my care for over a year. The father was o.k with the kids living with us until i asked him to help financially support them. At this time no one have any custody, guardianship or adoption papers on the children. The only paper I have on the children is a sworn affadavit, that i needed to get them in school, which states they live with me. The kids are stable, happy and is doing above average in school. The biological father is single, in the military and stationed on a ship. Would the courts grant my husband and I custody over the bioligical father? Please advise
