biographical information

Usually refers to information on prospective adoptive parents, including age, interests, reasons why they wish to adopt, hobbies and other information needed by the caseworker and/or the birthparents.

Some agencies ask prospective adoptive parents to write a special RESUME or profile that will be seen by birthparents considering adoption. Such a resume will usually include nonidentifying information, such as the individual's profession (if this information is nonidentifying), hobbies and so forth. (See also BACKGROUND INFORMATION.)
