Ian Mackintosh was the chair of the panel who convened to advise Steve and Becky McDonald if their application to be adoption parents had been successful. Their application was unsuccessful as the panel had issues with it being too soon after Becky’s miscarriage, concerns over the stability of their relationship and a negative reference from Becky’s half-sister Kylie Turner. Becky however blamed panel member Jade Greyson who had given her a cigarette outside the offices where the hearing took place and, for good measure, threatened the members to watch their backs in the future.
