Abandoned Baby Adoption Act of 1990 - Amends part E (Foster Care and Adoption Assistance) of title IV of the Social Security Act to require States to place abandoned babies with preadoptive parents within 30 days of obtaining custody of such babies and to find new preadoptive parents for such babies if the initial preadoptive parents do not petition the courts of the State within 90 days of receiving such babies for an expedited hearing to become their permanent adoptive parents. Treats such babies as children with special needs, thus qualifying their adoptive parents for adoption assistance.
