Gia loves her daddy. When he comes home from work, he gives her big hugs, swings her in circles, and even calls her his princess!
When her daddy is called to serve his country in Iraq and Afghanistan, Gia talks to him on the computer, helps bake him cookie care packages, and waits for the day he can come home. But when her daddy finally returns from his war experiences with the wounds of a warrior, Gia and her family soon discover that even though life is different, everything is still alright.
When Daddy Comes Home shares a poignant story for children of a soldier's journey to and from war as the family who loves him learns to open their hearts to change in the most positive light.

My name is Gia and when my Daddy comes home after work, he gives me the biggest hugs in the whole wide world!
Daddy calls me his Princess!
I giggle when Daddy tickles me
He likes to swing me in a circle!
We take walks to the park with our dog, Chloe.
We play basketball, while Mommy cooks dinner.
We play music and dance when my cousins, Nate, Beau and Gracie come over to visit!
Daddy reads stories to me at bedtime.
Daddy walks me to the school bus each morning.
All of these things we did until my Daddy became a soldier, and went to Iraq and Afghanistan to help the people there.
