Well you can call your grandparents mama and papa thats wut i do and im 19. But i Guess you can try to be adopted but you are 17 and there are few people who will take in a 17 year old. Sorry..

Best Of Luck!
I hope you find someone!

I think there are underlying issues which you need to address in order to move on, if you are 17 you are nearly an adult , but that doesn't mean that you don't want someone to love you. Maybe there is share accommodation where you can live with people your own age. You will always have your mum and dad there is no doubt there, weather you love them right now is up to you. Also there could be some older people out there willing to take you in maybe have a look at getting involved in some church activities.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

hm. this is tough. are you really 17? if thats true, i would find an older couple (like oldold) because that way, when they pass, they know that their child would be able to take care of themselves. i wouldn't look for a younger couple because they are probably looking for a baby. I'm sorry. I was adopted too. I've never met my real parents. i don't even know if they're alive. if you ever need someone to talk to, i'm here.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

don't give up hope when i am older i want to adopt a teen. im sure there is someone out there is looking for a teen to become part of there family. best of luck i hope you find the perfect family. sorry you had such a ruff beginning but i can assure you that you can still become what you want to be and that someone out there loves you.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

if you really need to be adopted, then please go to your local DHS. this isnt something you do online. it's much too unsafe.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Don't listen to people who say adults cannot be adopted, I have a friends whos ex in laws adopted her at 50, so she could inherit their estate instead of their own biological kids who never helped them with anything. Why don't you go to the social services department where you live and ask what hey can do for you?

Adopted Jane
When in doubt read their profile and their Q&A

About me: well....im looking for someone to adopt me....i have no parents...living wit the grandparents...im a 17 female....i LOVE to listen to music....do it pretty much alllllllllllll the time....anything you wanna kno bout me juss ask....lol

And whilst there check out their Q and A's cause the above isnt true either

Seriously NOT worth it !

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Don't worry about your age. People can still be legally adopted even after the age of 18. But the government won't see you parent as having to be legally responsible of you.

Remember, whether it happens or not, you can make your own family as an adult, through friends and their families.
