“(a) Upon the filing of a petition for adoption or guardianship, the court shall send a notice of the filing to each person whose parental rights have not previously been terminated and who, pursuant to Rule 9-102, has consented to the adoption or guardianship but has requested notice of the filing of the petition. If the person has also requested notice of further proceedings concerning the adoption or guardianship, the court shall send notice of any hearing to be held prior to the entry of a judgment terminating that person's parental rights and of the entry of any judgment terminating those parental rights.
“(b) Notice under this Rule shall be sent by first class mail to the address given on the consent form unless the person has, in writing, provided a new address.
“(c) The sending of notice pursuant to this Rule does not affect the consent signed by the person or give the person any standing to participate in the action.
