The Spirit of Adoption


How does a letter written in 1944, in the second month of a baby boy’s life, explain to that little boy, when he reads it for the first time fifty-four years later, the reason why his life turned out the way it had?

Adopted in 1945, Jonathan was brought up in a Christian home, and finds that the purpose for his life is fulfilled through his relationship with his Heavenly Father. He learns that God chooses to use ordinary people in sometimes extraordinary ways. In 1998, Jonathan searches for his birth mother which leads him to the United States of America.

Jonathan discovers a long trail of ‘coincidences’ starting with his Grandfather Verrier (1915, aged 19) and continuing to the present day, connecting his life with his natural family. He retired from The Bible Society in 2011.
