Adoption Parties (officially called Adoption Activity Days) were re-introduced by the British Association for Adopting and Fostering (BAAF) two years ago and have divided opinion ever since.
Tonight a daring Channel 4 documentary sheds real light on the process by following brothers Connor, seven, and Daniel, five, as they attend events in the hope of finding a lasting family.
Today we're joined by their foster parents Katy and Paddy, who have mixed feelings about the events. Alongside them is the journalist Kate Hilpern - herself an adoptee - who's fully behind the parties and sees them as a vehicle to help find children the families they desire.
Finding Mum and Dad is on Channel 4, 15 Jan at 10pm
