Heaven's Very Special Child

I was reading different blogs, and I found this on --Of course, I thought it was just perfect, since this is pretty much my view on special needs children. It's great to find a kindred spirit.

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."

His progress may be very slow,
Accomplishment 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 right away
The leading role they're asked to play.
But with this child sent form above
Comes stronger faith and richer love.

And soon they'll know the privilege given
In caring for their gift from Heaven.
There precious charge so meek and mild
