Blair Underwood, known to millions as a star of television
and film, has delivered brilliant performances as a lawyer
in L.A. Law and as a love interest in Sex and the City;
currently, he is the voice of the title character in Nick
at Nite's Fatherhood. But his proudest accomplishment is
being a loving husband and father of three children who
keep him in touch with the true meaning of life -- not
fame, but family.
When Blair Underwood's young son told him the dream he had
about "the last night before there are no more mornings and
no more nights," Underwood asked him, "Who told you that?"
His son replied, "God told me when he made me, but I only
had one ear at the time, so I could only hear a little."
Through conversations with family and friends, Underwood
discovered how very often people have children who say
things that have "left them with their jaws on the floor."
As a consequence, he and Donyell Kennedy-McCullough created
a Website as a destination for others to share their
profound moments with children. The response from people
all over the world was tremendous and led to the creation
of Before I Got Here, a collection of the best of the
conversations and stories from people's responses to the
Website, revealing just how brilliant and spiritually in
tune our children can be.
Before I Got Here makes you smile in the tradition of Art
Linkletter's and Bill Cosby's Kids Say the Darndest Things,
and inspires -- with the wonderful photographs of children
taken by coauthor Donyell Kennedy-McCullough.
