    I want to get adopted
    So my real mother is not in this country and my father abandoned me last year. Since then I had to take of myself because my father is not and my brother does not have enough money to support me. So I want to get adopted by a new family who would love and care for me

    Unless you are under 5, and in the foster care system, your odds of getting adopted are pretty low.

    Families looking to adopt want an infant or small child, not a teenager or adult.

    If you are under 18 and in the US, you should be in the foster care system, and have a family to live with.

    If you are an adult, then you need to do a couple of things. First, you need to recognize that the person who should take care of you is YOU. Second, you create your own family by making a circle of close friends. Love isn't conditional on shared blood.

    Agreed, if you are not a child. ( and obvious, since you are using internet) it is not likely to be adopted. If in the US, and your family does not care for you, then you would be placed in a foster care system.
