Jessop’s Journal: How an ABC4 Utah News story reunites birth mother with adopted son

Jessop's Journal

Everyone has a story. Stories have power. They help us understand each other. As I write this, the world needs some stories that impact you in a good way…a smile, a tear of joy. I decided to look back at a story that I did that had an amazing thing happen after the story aired.

I invite you to watch each episode of Jessop’s Journal at and share these stories with your friends and neighbors. Your feedback is always welcome.

Here are this week’s Internet Treasure Hunt questions:

  • What was the name of the ABC4 News series that this original story aired?
  • What is the name of the little boy we are talking about?
  • One of the underwriters has pivoted from making vodka to making what?

With another entry into Jessop‘s Journal, I’m Doug Jessop, ABC4 News.

Jessop’s Journal is something special when it comes to broadcast news. I have the honor of being able to do longer in-depth interviews you don’t normally see with people from all walks of life.
