    Your parents will have to put you up for adoption or abandon you.

    Your parents or guardian will need to put you up for adoption.

    I will say this, since you are old enough to write this, most likely it will be very hard to be adopted, most people want to adopt babies and very small children, most older young people merely stay in foster homes or facilities and no home is found

    Apart from your parents putting you up for Adoption like the others have suggested , your parents could also be found unfit to be your parents by CPS ( Child protection Services ) or whatever your state / country child protection service is called which would lead to you being taken out of their care, made a ward of the state or equivalent in your state / country then placed into foster care or adoption.

    Though I do have to ask.

    Why are you wanting to get Adopted.

    Hope this helps.

    Calling CPS on your parents or guardians is a double edged sword, not a decision to be made unless you are being physically beaten or locked in closets.
    You will have no choices at all once placed in foster care, not about with whom, not about adoption, nothing.
    Foster children are not always loved or treated in ways you hope for. Some parents just want the small amount of money they get. Don't expect a computer, or phone, or ipod, or allowance. Don't expect anything.

    YOU can't do anything other than reporting your parents to children's services for abuse. If you do an investigation will be made as to your allegations of abuse. If they are found to be valid, you will be removed from the home and placed in foster care. Whether you will be eligible for adoption will depend on age and area.
