About the Book

When a little girl's daddy is not a part of her life, everything changes. He isn't there to take her to school or bring her home. He isn't there to play with her or help her look for lost toys. He doesn't tuck her in at night or tell her bedtime stories.


Though the little girl misses her daddy very much, she is learning that he loves her the best way he knows how. What's more, she knows that God is her true Father and He will always keep her safe and loved no matter what.


Growing Up without My Daddy shares a story of being fatherless through the perspective of a little girl growing up in a big world without feeling the unconditional love and security of a father. This children's book seeks to help parents guide their little girls through healing the hurt and pain of growing up without their fathers so that they will aspire to become loving and confident young women. 


This book speaks to the heart of every little girl who had to grow up without the attention of a loving and caring father. Angela Adley has opened her own heart and shared from her truth with honesty and love. This book offers hope to every little girl who simply wanted her daddy's love.
