Can I adopt/have kids in NJ if I receive SSDI?

I am young, mobile and married. My spouse is employed 40hrs FT. I was confirmed as unable to work due to PTSD by family abuse, and ADHD. My spouse helps me with the activities of daily life which I struggle with (personal hygiene, meal prep, shopping, cleaning the house, etc) whenever he's not at work. We have a small dog (lab) we both take care of, and I think we have enough income & room for addition to the family.

I've always wanted to be a parent, and my spouse has paternal instincts and is ready to be a dad. I know when he is at work, I wold have the child full time, to cloth, feed, send to school, and make sure they have a safe and secure place to live. With my spouse being home 120+ hrs out of the 168 hrs in a week, I think we could make it work. We would raise our kids better than how I was raised.

The problm is that I think Social Security may think I will be unfit to be a parent, because I am not mentally capable of doing work. I am worried
