please, call me mom

Found this in a listing for a waiting child:

“Parental rights will be terminated upon identification of a permanent resource.”

permanent resource? you mean me? parents? mom? dad?

Everyone is SO careful about getting the references correct for a “birth mom who is making an adoption plan....”

I don't like being referred to as a “permanent resource.”

Please, call me mom.

We encountered the same situation, sort of. In our case though we were a "permanent plan"

How about the term "family"? They could even put the "adoptive" in there if they wanted. But no, "Permanent plan"
