Thank you for your question.

There is no such document that would be fully binding. However what she (or you) can do is file for a guardianship petition requesting that the guardianship and custody be transferred over. To get this petition contact the local courthouse and ask to speak to the clerk on duty. Then make sure that the other parent (if there is one) does not contest, file the petition, and make sure that both parties (you and the real parent) appear in court to finalize the transfer.

Good luck.
