An undocumented immigrant will not be able to file in a passport application on behalf of his/her child. Only a US citizen can do this.

Identification documents of both the parents should also be submitted along with the application.
No one can adopt a child for someone else. Since you are a minor, your parents would be adopting a child for whom they would be legally responsible.

If you really think you want a child yourself, you might have no idea how much work, sacrifice, money, and responsibility that entails.

Adoption is usually used to establish a legally accepted parent-child or custodial relationship.

Can a boyfriend adopt the baby if the girlfriend gave up parental rights as a minor if the child is still not adopted?
I'm 16 and i live in minnesota. how do i go about being adopted by a family i'd already have lined up to adopt me?
No, not unless they were related in some way and the minors parents were dead. I have known of cases where older brothers/sisters have adopted younger children in the family when the parents died, but an unrelated 19 year old would have a hard time.

If child does not want to live with mom or dad so they live with a friend do the parents still have to pay child support?
No, not if the child lives where the parents dont agree. However, the friend can file as a foster parent to say that the parents abandoned the child which would either cause the parents to loose custody and/or the minor to become emancipated.. In the longrun if the government ends up supporting the child, then Yes you will end up paying the government back for supporting your child.

Once the court accepts the petition and terminates the biological parents rights, the person's wishing to adopt the minor child can begin the adoption procedures.
