having

Postby Jededly » Fri Jul 12, 2013 2:55 pm

Hello!
Could you tell me please if one could use "having" in the next sentences?
1)Having no free time, he had to go without saying "goodbye". (Because he was having no free time, he had to go without saying "goodbye")
2)Having no native sisters, she was the self-centered child. (Because she did not have any native sisters she was the self-centered child.)
3) Because she was not having the ticket she was not allowed to come in.
Thanks.
