Poem, A Very Special Child
This poem is written for children that are much more handicapped then most Trisomy X girls are.

But I like the thought that everything has its purpose so much that I want to share it anyway.

A VERY SPECIAL CHILD

A meeting was held quite far from this earth:
“It’s time again for another birth"
said the angel to the Lord above,
“This special child will need much love.

Her progress may seem very slow,
Accomplishment she may not show
and she'll require special care
from the folks she'll meet down there.

She may not run or laugh or play,
her thoughts may seem quite far away,
in many ways she won't adapt
and she'll be known as handicapped.

So let's be carefull 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're asked to play.
But with this cheld sent from above
comes stronger faith and richer love.

And soon they'll know the privilege given
in caring for this child from heaven.
This precious child, so meek and mild,
is heaven's “very special child”.
