Poem - Heaven's Very Special Child

I am always looking for quotes or poems to help me understand and get through difficult situations in life. One of the situations I look for understanding is when a child is born with a disability or syndrome for which there is no cure.  My friend whose children both have MPS - the San Fillipo Syndrome sent this beautiful poem to us as she is trying to raise awareness and funds to save her children's life.  If you can help, please visit, the website for TEAM BROWNE at to donate your time or money.  


A meeting was held quite far from earth.  
It's time again for another birth.  Said the angel 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 folks 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 this special job for you.  

They may not realize 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 priviledge given, in caring for this child from heaven. 
Their precious child so meek, so mild, is heaven's very special child.
