HEAVEN'S SPECIAL CHILD

A good friend of mine in WV (thanks Nancy!) sent this beautiful poem to me. Thanks everyone for the encouragement after yesterday's event. I love how much you adore my lil' guy! :) He definitely has won the hearts of many!!!


Heaven's Special Child

A meeting was held quite far from earth.
"It's time for another birth"
Said the Angels to the Lord above,
"This special child will need much love.
His progress may seem slow,
Accomplishments he may not show,
And he'll require extra care,
From folks he meets way down there."

"He may not run, 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 parent who
Will do this special job for you."

"They may not realize it right away,
The special role they're asked to play,
But this child sent from above,
Comes a richer much stronger love."

"Soon his parent will know the privilege given,
In caring for this gift from heaven,
Their precious gift meek and mild,
He is Heaven's Special Child."

That is a great poem! It is so true. Max has made so many accomplishments that some children will never have the chance to make.
He is strong and he is beautiful inside and out! ((hugs to both of you))
