Heaven's Very Special Child

I read this poem on a friend of mine's blog. It is such a beautiful poem and means so much to me. It reminds me of how blessed I am to be the mother of my two beautiful, special children and of how much trust he has for us for him to leave them in our care.Because of my children my testimony and faith has grown so much. Some of my friends will understand how I feel. They have been entrusted with very special children also. They are such great examples to me of perfect mothers.

A meeting was held quite far from Earth.
It was time again for another birth.
Said the Angels to the Lord above-
"This special child will need much love.
"Her progress may be very slow,
"Accomplishment 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 fro heaven.
"Their precious charge, so meek and mild
"Is heaven's very special child."
