My mother sent me this poem when my daughter was diagnosed with multiple disabilities..Jt has really helped me thru 27 years so far!!! "Heavens very 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 down there.He may nor 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 parentswho, 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 privilage given, In caring for this gift from heaven.Their precious charge, so meek and mild IS HEAVENS VERY SPECIAL CHILD...
