From the Back Cover
In the 1950s, doctors often advised parents of disabled babies to put them away in institutions or homes. But when entertainers Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Rogers discovered their new baby, Robin, had Down Syndrome, they were determined to take her home and give her their love.
It wasn't easy. Through countless surgeries and sleepless nights, the Rogers found themselves exhausted and worried-until they began to notice a change in their lives. Somehow the unexplainable and unexpected was happening-Robin was helping Roy and Dale draw closer to God and to each other. Robin's brief life also persuaded them to do all they could to help others in similar circumstances.
Told from Robin's point of view in heaven, Angel Unaware is a touching story that has inspired millions of readers around the world. Whether you are a parent of a special needs child or have experienced the loss of a loved one, Robin's story will bring you the peace and understanding you need in difficult times.

Such a touching reminder for all of us that life is divine and should never be taken for granted.
It's an unbelievable story. Roy and Dale had children by previous marriages, but little Robin was the only child they had together, and she had Down's Syndrome. The whole family adored the little girl. The story is written first person as though the little girl was telling it, and as if she were actually an angel sent down to be with the Rogers family and to teach them more about love and bring them closer to God. It revealed the extraordinary writing talent that Dale Evans--already an extremely multi-talented person. In the story, Robin herself is talking to the Lord about all the wonderful things that they did for the Rogers family. I get misty-eyed just remembering this story its beautiful message. In fact, I've gotten choked up a couple of times while writing this review.
Robin didn't live long. But the good that came through her brief life still ministers to others.
Roy Rogers always had a burden and love for children with disabilities. Perhaps he always did (he was a good man) but I'm sure that the experience with Robin deepened it. Roy and Dale would later adopt a disabled little boy named Sandy -- which is a story in itself.
If you can possibly get a chance to read this, please do so! You won't be the same after reading it.
