If you're serious, then I think it would be a good idea for you to start reading up on adoption as much as you can. Read various perspectives: from adoptive parents, from birthparents, from adoptees, both the pros and the cons, so you can get a feel for whether this is the right direction for you. As you said, at twenty you're nowhere near ready to adopt (for various reasons), but it never hurts to start learning about something that interests you.

If a child is in a group home or some other facility in the US, social services has custody, and ya gotta, like, get 'em to cooperate with the adoption. You can also become an approved foster parent through social services, and foster-to-adopt a child that way, for free. (Hint, hint.)

Usually you must have a wife/husband, a good income and proof that you have the time and space for a child before you are allowed to adopt one. If you can't offer a good amount of time, can't afford schooling or (if in a country where health care is paid for) health care then you should wait before adopting
