my son Christopher
"It's time again for another birth."
Said the angels of 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 much extra care,
From all the folks he meets down there.
He may not laugh or run or play,
His thoughts may seem quite far away.
In many ways he won't adapt,
And he'll be known as 'handicapped'.
So lets 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 will not realize right away,
The leading role they're asked to play.
But with this child from up above,
Comes stronger faith and richer love.
And soon they'll know the priviledge given,
In caring for this gift from Heaven.
Thier precious child so meek and mild
Is "Heavens very Special Child"
