Peter Reece Tony Porter
Occupation: Adoption Agency Official
As a representative of the adoption agency, Peter Reece put potential adoptive parents, Steph and Max Hoyland, through their paces. After several interviews, they were accepted onto the programme and it wasn’t long before they were called in for an interview with Kayla Thomas, a heavily pregnant homeless girl who wanted them to take her child. Although all seemed to be going well, it was several weeks after Kayla had given birth, to baby Ashley, that the adoption services discovered that the Hoyland family had broken several rules, allowing Kayla to live with them both before and after the birth. Peter visited Max and Steph and told them that they were being permanently removed from the list of adoptive parents.
