Interview with Focus on the Family
"Shining a Positive Light on Down Syndrome"
Robert, Trevor and Melissa were invited out to Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs to record a radio interview that was broadcast on World Down Syndrome Day, March 21, 2017. Focus, a Christian ministry with an audience of millions across the United States and around the world, has been dedicated to helping families thrive since its founding in 1977. Focus provides help and resources for couples to build healthy marriages that reflect God's design, and for parents to raise their children according to morals and values grounded in biblical principles.
During their interview Robert shared how the practical lessons God taught him in his recovery helped him to be a better father to Trevor, and vice versa, the spiritual lessons God taught him as Trevor's dad have helped him to stay sober for over twenty years. The discussion also covered Robert and Trevor's book Angel for Higher, their ministry 'Angels for Higher' and their vision to transform the pro-life, special needs culture of the world...one sports stadium at a time.
Focus on the Family President Jim Daly has stated, "Trevor's life is a powerful testimony to the inestimable worth of every human being and a reminder that God creates all of us with a divine purpose to fulfill. It's clear the Lord is working through your family in incredible ways, and I look forward to learning how He continues to impact lives as you share your story. It was a privilege to air this compelling discussion in conjunction with World Down Syndrome Day.”
