I've learned a ton about adoption language over the past few years. Even as an adoptive parent I still find myself about to say "put up for adoption" rather than "make an adoption plan" sometimes. It's hard because certain words, concepts and phrases are engrained in us for so long. I try to be really understanding when people use the wrong words.
