I can point you in the right place, but I'm afraid I can't push it through or anything like that. I'm just a passer-by with no actual power, just a bit of experience.
I should also point out that:
"More than one user can request an adoption together, but there must be clearly stated agreement as to what rights (administrator/bureaucrat) each person will get linked in the request."
So you can avoid having the single admin issue again.
