18 alone and confused

I'm 18, and pregnant. I dated my best friend for about 3 months, and we broke up. About a week and a half after we broke up, i found out i was pregnant. By this time, we still were not on speaking terms. I told him i was pregnant, and he asked me to get an abortion. I simply said that it was against my personal beliefs and i couldn't do that. After i told him that, he called me selfish and stubborn. I know that I'm not selfish and stubborn for these reasons. We tried talking again about a month after i found out and we still could not get along. It has now been almost 2 moths since we have talked, and he has said countless of times, he wants nothing to do with this baby. I have never been one to be able to make decisions very easily, even the simplest of ones. I am torn between doing adoption, or keeping the baby. I would love more than anything to keeping my baby, but i know at the age of 18, financially i would never be able to do it, and i know i cant rely on my family for support. I also am aware that there are many families that would love to have a baby, and would do anything for one, however for some reason, i just don't think adoption is for me. Please, if you have any opinion at all on this, or have been through this as well, help me. I am young and confused and am open or anything that you would have to say.
