The fourth season's concluding episode of Sort Your Life Out caused a lot of emotional reactions among viewers on Tuesday night, as Stacey Solomon and her crew assisted a household in organizing and tidying up their living space, which was packed with sentimental possessions.

Stacey Solomon, along with her colleagues Dilly Carter, Iwan Carrington, and Rob Bent, commenced the task of sifting through an accumulation of memories spanning over six decades.

The couple shared that when they got married 44 years back, they expected to have children immediately, but soon comprehended that 'things were not working out.'

"I still can't believe we made it through that period," confessed Shirley. They detailed that the process of adopting their daughters, Sarah and Katherine, was a lengthy eight-year journey before the girls finally became part of their family.

Shirley expressed that it took quite some time for her to start a family, which is why it is difficult for her to let go of their belongings and memories. She conveyed that having her two children was such a blessing that she feels hesitant to give up anything related to them.

During the conversation with Stacey, the couple shared their desire to become foster parents once they retire. Stacey could empathize with them since she too, mentioned that her spouse Joe Swash, whose mother was also a foster parent, wants to do the same once their children grow up and move out.

Dilly, an expert on organising homes, also recounted a personal tale during the touching episode. She revealed to Sarah and Katherine that she was adopted.

Dilly expressed that having her own child Nellie was a significant moment for her as she saw Nellie as her only blood relative. Dilly felt like she had no other family in the country or in her life.

Katherine and Sarah shared with Dilly that discussing adoption in an honest and open way helped to restore a part of themselves. Sarah expressed that accepting the adoption and going through the process had a positive impact on her well-being and gave her a sense of healing.

People were highly impressed with the emotional moments when Shirley and Martin discussed the adoption of their daughters, Sarah and Katherine, and their next goal of fostering kids in their residence.

Soon after they had moved everything from their home into a large storage unit, the family discovered quite a hefty number of expired food items (189 to be exact), as well as 124 used towels, and 306 stuffed animals, in addition to countless other possessions.

Dilly, an expert in organising homes, also discussed an emotional moment during the episode. She recounted to Sarah and Katherine how she came to be adopted.

Dilly added that she is unable to conceive any more children and is therefore considering adopting a child. She hopes this will bring her journey as a parent full circle.

During the ultimate presentation, Stacey showcased the renovation of the additional bedroom while also sharing that the crew consulted with specialists to ensure the room was made into a hospitable environment for foster kids.

Shirley spoke to Stacey after observing the room and expressed her desire to provide additional support to children in dire situations. She stated that the possibility of doing so would be incredibly fulfilling and meaningful to her.

Katherine, the daughter, was also overwhelmed with feelings as she expressed gratitude to the team towards the end of the episode, describing her parents as completely deserving of the honor.

'By granting us existence that may have been inaccessible otherwise, and adorning their abode with such aesthetic appeal, your efforts have been instrumental. We are truly grateful.'

Stacey expressed to them that their family is truly amazing and deserves to create joyful moments that they will cherish.

The pair also disclosed to Stacey that they have a desire to care for children as foster parents during their golden years.

Stacey connected with the concept as she described that her spouse Joe Swash, who had been fostered by his own mother, also shared the same intentions.
