He claims that he was taken away from his birth parents when he was only 9 months old and adopted into his current family some months later. Raber never really felt a part of the Amish lifestyle, maybe because he knew he was adopted.

But recently in March 2021, Jeremiah made his appearance again on television and managed to track down his biological relatives with the help of a man named Dennis who claimed to be his father. Although after the DNA test it was revealed that Dennis is not the father but his biological father is named Larry who is his mother’s brother-in-law. Raber also traveled to Michigan to meet his other cousins and know more about Larry.
