Heaven's Very Special Child

Comment on Article

This poem is dedicated to parents who has a special child:

A meeting was held quite far from Earth.
"It's time again for another birth,"

said the angels to the Lord above.
"This special child will need much love,
His progress may seem very slow,
Accomplishments he may not show
And He'll require extra care

From the folks he meets way down there.
He may not run or laugh or play ;
His thoughts may seem quite far away.
In many ways he won't adapt,
And he'll be known as handicapped.
So let's be careful where he's sent,
We want his life to be content.

Please, Lord, find parents who
will do a special job for You.
They will not realize right away
The leading role they're asked to play
But with this child sent from above
Comes stronger faith and richer love.
And soon they'll know the privilege given
In caring for this gift from Heaven
Their precious charge, so meek and mild
Is Heaven's very special child
