There is no way to do that without going to court. Also, do not just move yourself over to the house of the person who wants to adopt you because your mother could charge them with harboring a runaway. If your mother wants to let them adopt you, and they want to adopt you, they'll have to file adoption papers in court and your mother will have to consent.
