Almost Daddy:

The Forgotten Story

Ben had plans. He had dreams. Yet in a moment, and a moment beyond his control, fatherhood was lost…and Ben was adrift. A ship without a rudder being pushed by an unknown wind….he was almost daddy. This is an invitation to walk this path with Ben. The journey from original pain to healing is a winding, twisting road that no one should walk alone. Perhaps healing can be found and relationship restored with God. Because alone, healing rarely comes.

Almost Daddy:

A Men’s Guide to Healing After Abortion

Almost Daddy: A Men’s Guide to Healing After Abortion takes the time-tested principles of the 12 Steps and applies them to Post Abortion Recovery. Each chapter talks through one of the steps and ends with a related testimony from a post-abortive man.
This guide is not meant to be the beginning to end of a recovery journey. It is, rather, a tool for the tool kit, a piece of the puzzle and a step along the path to restoration.

Finding Forgiveness

The Search for Meaning in the Midst of Grief

Forgiveness is linked to gratitude; both are essential to a life of peace and purpose. Forgiveness, however, can be hard to find in any of it’s many forms. As Curtis, Billy and Jimmy explore the age-old question of “why bad things happen to good people” they will each have to search for the forgiveness they need to give and receive. In that process they will each have to find gratitude as well.

Greg captures the heart and mind of the man who becomes a father, only to find himself with empty arms. As a society, we make men feel that they have no voice in the matter of abortion. Walking this journey of pain and heartbreak that turns into healing with purpose is an option for every man with abortion in his past. Greg does a wonderful job of drawing us into the process of recovery and finding peace. I would hand this book to any man who confesses his loss. I would invite them to seek healing, and this could be the very tool to open a walled-up heart that fears the reality of the pain. Thanks, Greg, for allowing your story to be one that unlocks the path to healing!

I am the Director of Hearts Restored of Clarity of SC IN and will use this at our 7 centers!

The story of Ben in “Almost Daddy” is an odyssey on many levels. Through a character many men (and women) can relate to in one aspect or another, Ben’s journey takes us through the pain of a young life. Pain from the “what if’s” that haunt us, to failed relationship woes, to betrayal, and the pain of the all-too-common uncharted drifting through a life without true purpose or meaning causes.

But the pain is a crucible — Ben discovers love, life, and purpose in his life. And especially — my biggest takeaway — how to forgive yourself.


Best book I have read in the past 30 years!!

Find a Brother

Men have been diminished. There's no denying this. And it's taken decades to get to the point we're at today. Andy where is that? Well, we have a mental health crisis in the male community. Every day in the US 132 men commit suicide. And the rate of suicide is highest...

Why I Write

Why I Write

By the time I was in high school I knew I wanted to write books. Even then there were a few authors whose stories had touched me deeply. I thought that, if I could tell a compelling story that communicated a deep truth, I could be a positive influence in the world. ...

The Clinic Steps

The Clinic Steps

The first abortion loss I experienced was over 30 years ago. The pathway from then to now, as far as recovery goes, has been well documented in this space…so I won’t go into that again.  But we talk about recovery as being a journey and not a destination. For that...
