Someone gave this poem to me a long time ago, and I just wanted to share it tonight!


Heaven's Very Special Child

In Loving Memory Of Curtis L. Hendley
Submitted by Leana M. Hendley

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 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 the Parents who
Will do a special job for You.
They will not realize it 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.

I am a 46 yr old woman from Australia living with Cerebral Palsy.

I can remember this poem hanging on the wall in the Waiting Room, of my old school. This was way back in the 70's, in Perth, Western Australia. My Mum, drew a lot of Inspiration from this poem. It goes to show; that a good poem will always transcend time and touch the hearts of many people!!

Thanks for the post. 2009 has been difficult so far. It helps to remember that God is looking out for us.
