"Heaven's Very Special Child".

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 be very slow,
Accomplishment she may not show
And she'll require extra care
From the people she meets down there.

She may not run or laugh or play,
Her thoughts might seem quite far away,
In many ways she won't adapt
And she'll be known as handicapped.

So let's be careful where she's sent,
We want her life to be content.
Please, Lord, find the parents who
Will do this 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 their gift from heaven;
Their precious charge so meek and mild
Is "Heaven's Very Special Child".
