        Amends the  Juvenile  Court  Act  of  1987.   Provides  that  the      
   biological  and  adoptive parents of a minor who is the subject of an       
   abuse, neglect, or dependency petition may enter into  an  agreement

   necessary to serve the best interests of the child and if the adoptive      
   and biological parents agree or exceptional circumstances arise  after
