I am also the owner of Rachel Fawdry Books and author of the Missing You book series. Missing You books are the only children’s books that bring families together when they are apart. My stories do something very unique in the book industry in that they help parents feel better about being away from their children when they can’t be at home to spend time with them due to work or distance.
As a mother whose husband used to work 12 hour day and night shifts in the nursing field, I know firsthand the concerns and guilt that parents feel when they can’t spend as much time with their children as they want. I know that working parents deal with three main problems:
- Miss spending time with your children: Supporting your family is important to you, but sometimes that means you have to work long hours during times when your children are home and you miss spending time with them.
- Afraid you aren’t a big part of your children’s lives: It is hard knowing that a tradeoff of working is that you can’t participate in everyday moments with your children. The Missing You series has an engaging narrative about every day events that will make you feel like you are there for your children, participating in those activities with them.
- Feel guilty that you are not home: No parent wants to leave their children for extended periods of time. You want to be there, but sometimes it just can’t happen. The Missing You series tells children how much they are loved and missed, making you as a parent feel a little better knowing that your children can be reminded how miss them.
With this book series, my husband feels better leaving for work knowing that our son will be reminded how much he is loved and missed. No other book offers that to children and their families. I promise that:
You Will Feel Good When You’re Not There,
Your Child Will Know You Care,
You Will Be Remembered
My unwavering promise is at the heart of every Missing You children’s book. Every child should be able to know they are missed and loved by their parents, and these books will bring you and your children closer together despite the distance.
