(a) In a direct placement, a parent or guardian must personally select a prospective
adoptive parent, but a parent or guardian may obtain assistance from another person
or entity, or an adoption facilitator, in locating or evaluating a prospective adoptive
parent, subject to the limitations of Article 10 of this Chapter.
(b) Information about a prospective adoptive parent shall be provided to a prospective
placing parent or guardian by the prospective adoptive parent, the prospective adoptive
parent's attorney, or a person or entity assisting the parent or guardian. Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, this information shall include
the preplacement assessment prepared pursuant to Part 3 of this Article, and may include
additional information requested by the parent or guardian. The agency preparing the preplacement assessment may redact from the preplacement
assessment the information described in G.S. 48-3-303(c)(12).
