This is not just a story; it is in a way, a prayer too. For couples struggling with infertility, this book provides faith and courage to continue the journey when it’s tough. It may produce some insight about why creating a family sometimes takes longer than we expect. It allows couples to rest assured that the child God has chosen for them had been planned a long, long time ago. This book provides comfort during “the wait”. For women struggling with an unplanned pregnancy, this story provides a life giving option. It shows how God can take uncertainty and transform it into beauty, fear into comfort and confusion into peace, as He walks each step with them along the way. For children who have been adopted, this story shows how God places them into their parents’ hearts long before they arrive. Sometimes families are created through non-typical measures, but those families are created just as He had planned; with an immeasurable dose of love. This is our story. We know how it feels to fail time and time again at planning a family to only have our hearts broken repeatedly. Yet, after each failure we still had a nudging inside for a child. Our Sweet Baby James was there all along and we just had to be as patient as he was waiting for God’s plan to unfold. The birth mother in this story is our beloved birth mother. Although her image in this manuscript is fictional, the love that she had for James is a testament to true agape love. She was chosen for a monumental task that she lovingly accepted and we will always cherish her for the unselfish love she demonstrated. The story of Sweet Baby James is here to speak to your heart as he has ours. May it provide comfort and assurance for those who are walking a path that is difficult. Robert Frost famously stated, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” He was right. For us, it has made all the difference in the world! Make a difference in someone’s life. Provide the encouragement they need to take a difficult road, and remind them that this is a road that God had paved just for them. May God answer your prayers as He has answered ours.

Drawing on interviews, rare recordings, and newly discovered documents, acclaimed journalist David Browne “allows us to see—and to hear—the elusive moment when the '60s became the '70s in a completely fresh way” (Mark Harris, author of Pictures at a Revolution).

In 1970 a scraggly, antiheroic young man from North Carolina by way of Massachusetts began presenting a comforting new sound, a kind never heard before. Within a year, when young ears sought a new sound, there was "Fire and Rain" and "You've Got a Friend," and a new Southern California-fed branch of pop music. Taylor was its reluctant leader. Remarkably, Taylor has survived: his 2015 release, Before This World, edged out Taylor Swift and went to #1 on the charts. Today he is in better physical and probably mental condition than during the whirlwind when he influenced music so heavily, the decade when magazines and newspapers printed feverish stories about his gawky hunkiness, his love affair with Joni Mitchell, his glittery marriage to Carly Simon, his endlessly carried-out heroin habit, and sometimes even his music. Despite it all, Taylor has become the nearest thing to rock royalty in America. Based on fresh interviews with musicians, producers, record company people, and music journalists, as well as previously published interviews, reviews, and profiles, Sweet Dreams and Flying Machines is the definitive biography of an elusive superstar.

Nelson George and Alan Leeds have assembled the first comprehensive collection of writings about the late, great Godfather of Soul, creating a fascinating mosaic of the man and the musician. Known as the hardest-working man in show business, James Brown embodied rhythm and blues, funk and soul, and sensuality. His musical innovations in such indelible grooves as “Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine,” “I Got You (I Feel Good),” and “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag,” transformed American music. To appreciate Brown’s immeasurable influence, to chronicle his professional and personal triumphs and struggles, and to capture his essence, writers from four decades weigh in on the legendary Soul Brother Number One. What emerges is a tribute to a trailblazer—one that no dedicated fan or music history buff will want to be without.
