Every Child Deserves a Champion

Every Child Deserves a Champion ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year

What happens when a child has a champion? In Bob Danzig’s case, he went from being a foster care child to being the head of the Hearst Newspaper Group and vice president of the Hearst Corporation. When Bob was twelve years old, Mae Morse, the foster care professional moving him from his fourth foster home to his fifth, told him, “You are worthwhile.” For the first time in his life, Bob felt a sense of self-worth. And, from that moment on, those words were tattooed on his spirit, staying with him his entire life.
Rather than muscles of steel, or the ability to leap over tall buildings in a single bound, most of the champions in life are individuals whose strength is their kindness—their compassion for the well-being of others. This book is a testimonial to all those who have experienced positive life changes because someone chose to champion them or because they championed someone else. It is also Bob Danzig’s hope that Every Child Deserves a Champion encourages others to embrace every opportunity to be a champion, regardless of age, as each of us always has some of the child within us.
