Legal Question in Family Law in Michigan

I'm a 19 year old single mom, I'm going to college, working, and taking care of my baby. The baby's daddy wants to fight for joint custody of the baby while he left to college and he is in the baby's life only whe he can. He is living his dream without worries about the baby and his mother is a contro freak and is advising him to do this. I also want to peruse my dream and going to the Air Force but I have to give full custody of my baby and would like to give it to my mother. No one else, what can I do?
