Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Child Care Act of 1969. Adds requirements for approval of adoption-only homes by licensed child welfare agencies. Requires that, in approving an adoption-only home, if an adult resident has an arrest or conviction record, the licensed child welfare agency shall thoroughly investigate and evaluate the criminal history and the resident and shall not approve the home under specified circumstances. Amends the Adoption Act. Makes changes concerning the content of the Birth Parent Rights and Responsibilities-Private Form, including the right to provide medical, background, and family information to the child's prospective adoptive parents or their attorney through a voluntary Birth Parent Medical Information form. Provides that, prior to finalization of an adoption, any prospective adoptive parent in a private adoption who is not being provided with adoption services by a licensed child welfare agency, who is not adopting a related child, and who is not adopting a child who is a ward of the Department of Children and Family Services shall be provided an Adoptive Parent Rights and Responsibilities-Private Form. Adds additional requirements in cases of adoptions in which an Illinois licensed child welfare agency is not providing adoption services and the child who is the subject of the adoption is not a related child of the prospective adoptive parent and not under the custody or guardianship of the Department of Children and Family Services under the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Makes other changes.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
In provisions amending the Child Care Act of 1969, removes the telephone number for the Illinois Adoption Registry from provisions regarding forms of consent and surrender and adoptive parent rights and responsibilities.
