Heavens Very Special Child

by Edna Massionilla December 1981 The Optomist- newsletter for PROUD Parents Regional Outreach for Understanding Down's Inc.

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 seem very slow,
Accomplishments he may not show.
And he'll require extra care
From the folk he meets down there.

He may not run or laugh or play
His thougths may seem very 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 this special job for you.

They may not realise right away
This leading roll 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 child from heaven
Their precious child so meek, so mild
Is Heavens special Child
