Heaven's Very Special Child

A special friend sent me this poem, which is so fitting for our family. This week I have needed much encouragement, and this reminded me that I am here for a very special reason. God's plan is perfect in every way.
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.
His progress may be very slow,
Accomplishment he may not show.
And he'll require extra care
From the folks he meets 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 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."
