  • 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
