Overview

Through great grief can come great joy.

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.

    exceptional Dale Evans book

    I first read this book when I was 12 years old. I was inspired and blessed then to read it. I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs Evans and discussing the book at age 13. I lost the book through the years and have been looking for a copy. Now I am 46 years old and have read it again..and I feel the same inspiration and blessing I did so many years ago..this is a must read book..seeing how God works through the love of a child..simply amazing

    Moving

    I grew up with a sister like this angel and these children are truly angels. You may not know it until their time comes to go to God then you do. My sister passed out her love and caring to everyone one of in the family right up to the end. Even thou shes gone shes still teaching us.

    wonderful little book

    I grew up watching movies and television shows with Roy Rogers and Dale Evans--back in the days when most, or at least many, celebrities understood that they were role models for children and tried to live the part. This little book is truly a tear-jerker but is a great insight into the heart of someone who loved a disabled child. Even those of us who have never had to deal with such a situation can appreciate the pathos invested in Dale Evans Rogers's words.

    Very Touching

    After having lost my fifteen-day old son, a friend let me borrow her copy. I read it in an hour and so did my husband. We were so moved by the book that we ordered a copy for ourselves immediately. The manner in which it is written is excellent and makes it an appropriate book for anyone dealing with the loss of a child. My seven-year-old daughter will read it when we receive our copy. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has lost a child and to anyone who knows someone who has lost a child.
