Why is there so many children in foster care and adoption programs?

I've heard about it, possibly because I have a close relative who has a social worker job, and when I did childcare, I took care of a handful of children who were in the system or came from poor, neglectful households (from what I heard). Whatever happened to go good ol' parenting and having your own biological children? Yes I understand the reasons why children go into foster care or are set up for adoption. I understand for some people adoptions the only way they should have a kid. From the prospective of a birth parent, why don't more parents just suck it up, and do it. I mean if you are teen who got pregnant either get an abortion ( I know it's controversial) or suck it up and realize you need to take care of this human being. And for the parents who do drugs and commit other crimes, that lifestyle needs to stop once you have a child.
