"It's time again for another Birth"
Said the Angels 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 folks he meets, way down there
He may not run, 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 a special job for you
They will not realize right away
The leading role they're asked to play
So with this child sent from above
Comes stronger faith and richer love
And soon they'll know the privilege given
In caring for this gift from Heaven
This special child so meek and mild
Is "Heaven's Very Special Child".
November 17, I will be wearing purple in honor of my children...of whom all were born early between 34-36 weeks...and my twins who were born at 23 weeks gestation. I miss my Nicholas with every breath I take...but am so grateful to God and Nick for watching over Kenny whom I am sure has his twin as his guardian angel. This picture was taken the first time I held Kenny...over a month after their births. I was so scared to hold him for fear that he too would get sick and die. He looked right at me (I was a crying mess) as if to tell me that everything would be alright.
Even after long days like today...doctor, specialists and therapies...colds, medicines and feeds...I feel truly blessed. Yes, I get frustrated, scared, lonely and sad at times but I know I can handle it. Gods got my back on this!
