I am someone who is quite interested in adoption myself. I think adoption is often a great solution. People assume the alternative is the birth parents raise the child. I knew a kid who was in a state run institution (for reasons I am unsure). It was one of the saddest situation I have ever seen. Some adoptions go badly, but so do some birth families. Neither has monopoly on abuse and neglect. I have seen horrific situations where no one was adopted. I think adoption can be good or bad as are birth families good or bad.
That being said I think it would be better to focus on adoption later. Right now you are having a baby, I would focus on that baby and really think about adoption when that child gets a little older.
