Default Heavens Very Special Child

I thought I had posted this poem on here at Christmas time last year, but I cant find the thread for it. Your post Leann made me think of it. I received this poem from my father at Christmas in a beautiful frame:

A meeting was held quite far from Earth
It was 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
accomplishments she may not show
And she'll require extra care
from the folks she meets down there
She may not run or laugh or play
Her thoughts may seem quite far away
So many times she will be labeled
different, helpless and disabled
So lets be careful where she's sent
We want her 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 are 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
