Angel for Higher chronicles the joyfully inspirational journey of Robert Hendershot, a recovering alcoholic, and his son Trevor, who has Down syndrome, as they seek God's will for their lives.

The practical lessons God taught Robert in his recovery have 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 remain sober since August 24, 1997.

When Robert learned in the maternity hospital that Trevor was born with Down syndrome he was shocked, disappointed and angry with God, "I do not deserve a son like this!" The last twenty-six years of their life together have proved that Robert was right all along in that he really did not deserve a son like Trevor, but for the completely opposite reason.

During Trevor's early school years he was bullied, told he was worthless, and that the best job he could ever hope for would be folding towels in the basement of a hotel laundromat. Nevertheless, as a senior in high school the faculty drafted him onto the homecoming court, and then his classmates elected him Homecoming King in the greatest landslide in his school's history--he received more votes than the other four candidates combined.

After graduating Trevor was first hired by Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Angels in 2012, and then by the National Hockey League's Anaheim Ducks in 2013 to work as the Greeter in their respective Team Stores. Trevor's still known, admired, and ofter loved by hundreds of thousands of sports fans, fellow employees and professional athletes.

Robert and Trevor are in the process of forming a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, Angels for Higher, to help facilitate the "Trevorizing" of additional stadiums and arenas. Their mission is to encourage the hiring of individuals with Down syndrome, like Trevor, to work as greeters (and pro-life ambassadors) at sports venues across the USA, North America and ultimately around the world. Their vision is to transform the pro-life, special needs culture of the sports stadium at a time.

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine..." (Ephesians 3:20)

Robert Hendershot has been actively involved in the special needs community since May 4, 1990, and with 12-step recovery programs since August 24, 1997. He and his wife Melissa have been married since December 23, 1985, have been blessed with three sons, Trevor, Taylor and Tanner, and live in Irvine, California.
