No, he doesn't need to adopt them

The K-1 visa might be best for you as it has a derivative visa for your kids

But the Cr-1 will be cheaper for you and your kids in the long run

However, if you only met in 2009 you do not qualify for any type of visa at the moment has you have to have physically met or seen each other in the past 2 years of filing. You mention only 1 meeting in 2009

Good luck
