Heaven's Special Child
By Edna Massimilla
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 will meet down there.
She may not run or laugh or play
Her thoughts may seem quite far away
In many ways she won't adapt
And she will be known as handicapped.
So let's be careful where she is 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'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 gift from Heaven
Their precious charge, so meek and mild,
Is Heaven's very special child."
