Daddy and Mommy knew something was missing in our family
We said, “We need a little girl to love.”
So we prayed and prayed,
Asking God to send us an angel from above
“And not just any little girl, Lord.
We want a baby as precious as can be.
We want to give her hugs and kisses,
And make sure that she’s happy.”
“I have a very special baby girl,” God said to us.
But she will need more care than other babies do.
Her skin will be very different,
And her ears and eyes too.
She will need lots of understanding and time from you
Sometimes she might be very sick.
But the laughter and joy she has to share
Are truly heaven-sent.
I need to find parents for this special girl whom I can trust.”
We said, “Please God, choose us!”
We told him, “We have so much love to give
And happiness to share.
We know this perfect child
Is the one we have been praying for.”
“Bless us with this child,” we implored.
“We trust your plan for her, oh Lord.”
God smiled and said he would grant us this great blessing.
Your condition at birth was just as he said.
But we have faith in his plan
And the journey on which we’re being led
On the day you were born
And every day since,
We have thanked God
For our very special gift.
