1. The decision of the biological parents of the child to place the child for adoption.

2. The identity of the individuals or family that will adopt the child, or the method by which they will be selected.

3. Whether the adoption will be a closed adoption, a semi-open adoption or an open adoption.

4. Details of the planned involvement of individuals that will be involved as part of the adoption plan, such as biological parents, adoptive parents and extended family members, including how they will be involved with each other before and after the delivery.
