Why we need adalah here?

Is the meaning the same without it?

"Adalah" is used here to, for lack of a better word, describe the object. "Adalah" is not necessary but in this case you point it out. "She IS my mother".

I don't get it, why couldn't this be translated as he is my mother? Why to enforce traditional gender roles of childbirth duo! :@
