Marriage emancipates You !!

You must be at least 18yrs old in most states to adopt a child.
You also have to prove you can support yourself without help from anyone. I know grown adults struggling to do let alone 16yr olds.
You can't work full time either at 16 so you will not make a lot of money at all.
The fact you are just 16yrs old & trying to have a child makes you look very irresponsible.
Just because you are emancipated does not make you an adult in the eyes of the law. People tried to tell you this here -

You STILL have to be over 18.
