    I enlarged this saying...and it is still on my 3yr old sons, dresser...It has been there since he was born..I love this saying!..As the mother of a special needs baby, It brought me great strength and peace...I hope it does the same for all of you:
    The child, yet unborn, spoke with the Father.

    "Lord, How will I survive in the world? I will not be like other children. My walk may be slower, my speech hard to understand. I may look different. What is to become of me?"

    The Lord replied to the child,

    "My precious one, have no fear. I will give you exceptional parents. They will love you because you are special, not in spite of it. Though your path through life will be difficult, your reward will be greater. You have been blessed with a special ability to love, and those whose lives you touch will be blessed....because you are special."

My daughter when she was younger used to say that our "Special Guy" had to be and angel from God because he was special, he was always happy, he loves everyone and most of all because he's BLOND!!!! ;) Thanks again for the beautiful words!

    Thanks for sharing. That is really nice.
    I really needed that after just getting off an airplane where we had to explain over and over to DD that it was OK for the flight attendants to be working when the fasten seatbelts light was on because of turbulance.
