The charity’s Chief Executive Margaret Moyes said, “Scottish Adoption has over 90 years of experience of working with vulnerable children and we know how important it is to find the best possible placement for each child. The number of children in need of adoption is increasing every year and there are not enough adoptive parents coming forward. LGBT people often come to adoption as the first choice for expanding their family, bringing love, commitment and resourcefulness."

These are just some of the feedback that have come from people who attended this years event.

"Our evening wasn't what we expected....it was better."
