Out of the Shadow - I Can and I Will

Book Cover

The incredible biography of Darol Rodrock, who rose out of the foster system to found one of the most successful development companies in the Midwest.

Abuse, poverty and loneliness raised Darol Rodrock. Shuffled in and out of orphanages and foster homes, Darol remembers vividly what it was like to a child in need – nowhere to go, and no one to call for help. He was a child left behind.

Years later, this abandoned boy grew up to be an ambitious businessman and passionate philanthropist founding one of the most successful residential development companies in the Midwest. His story is the constant reminder that through perseverance, anything is possible – “I Can and I Will.”

Praise for the Book

book review

“Hearing Darol talk to the students in our foundation’s program, it’s obvious he has not only a remarkable story, but an incredible heart for people. Every time I hear Darol speak or spend time with him, I’m inspired to give more of myself to others. Now we’re all blessed with the opportunity to read his inspirational story.”
