Heaven's Very Special Child

This poem is such a touching one...I pray everyday that we as a family can give and will continue to give our girls exactly what they need. I know our God has BLESSED us with precious angels, and we want to make sure they grow and develop into the perfect woman in which they were created to be. We want them to know of the love our Heavenly father can give them...

Please if you think of it today and in the future....lift our family up in prayer...we have been given such a order, unlike many parents, with Heaven's very special child(ren) and we take it very seriously...pray that we will continue to do everything we can for our girls!

Heaven's 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.

Her progress may seem very slow.

Accomplishments she may not show,

And she'll require extra care

From the folks she meets down there.

She may not run, or laugh, or play-

Her thoughts may seem quite far away.

So many times she will be labeled

'different', helpless', and 'disabled'.

So let's be careful where she's sent.

We want her life to be content.

Please, Lord, find the parents who

Will do a special job for You.

They will not realize right away

The leading role they are 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 their gift from Heaven.

Their precious charge, so meek and mild

Is Heaven's Very Special Child".
