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 so much love”,

His progress will seem very slow,
Accomplishments he may not show,
And he’ll require extra Care,
From the folks 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 right away,
The leading role they’re asked to play,
But with this child from above,
Comes stronger faith and richer love

And soon they’ll know the privilege given,
In caring for this gift of Heaven.
Their precious charge so meek and mild,
Is Heaven’s very special child.
