I don’t know who wrote this poem. It was clipped from a newspaper but I really liked it.
A meeting was held quite far from earth
“It’s time again for another birt,”
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’ll require extra care
From the folks he meets way 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 riht away
The leading role they’re asked to play
But with this child sent from above
Come 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.
