Heaven’s Very Special Child
A meeting was held quite far from earth "Its 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 may require extra care
from the folk he`ll meet down there."
"He may not run or laugh or play; His thoughts may seem far away;
In many ways he won`t adapt,
And he`ll be known as handicapped
"So lets 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 part 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 child from heaven; Their precious charge so meek and mild,
Is Heaven Very Special Child."
The Special Child
The special child, the child not yet born spoke with the Father,
Lord, “how will I survive in the world?
I will not be like other children.
My walk may be slower, my speech harder to understand.
I may look different, what is to become of me?”
The Lord replied to the child: “My precious one,
Have no fear, I will send you people who are exceptional,
Who will love you because you are special,
Not in spite of it.
Though your path in life will be difficult,
Your rewards will be greater.
You have been blessed with special abilities to love And those whose lives you will touch will be blessed.
You are special.”
