Adoption. Provides that if the birth parents revoke an entrustment agreement or a consent to adoption any party may request a hearing to determine the best interests of the child. In addition, there will be no legal presumption in favor of the birth parents in a hearing to determine the best interests of a child if the child (i) has been placed for purposes of adoption and (ii) has been continuously in the custody of the adoptive parents, child-placing agency or local board of social services for over 25 days. The bill also provides that it is a Class 5 felony for anyone to knowingly and intentionally provide false or misleading information which is material to an adoption placement.
