Children with disabilities are a special gift. They have a love to share like no other! If we are open with our minds and our hearts, we can learn so much from them. God always knows what He is doing. We just have to remember that!
The first time I saw your blue eyes
I said a prayer of hope,
With all your disabilities
I needed strength to cope!
I asked God why you were this way
So different from the rest,
I just can’t figure out why me
Is this some kind of test?
But then they put you in my arms
I held you to my heart,
At once I knew I was complete
You were my missing part!
God sent me you to fill my life
With love I never knew,
This endless love would now be mine
Because of special you!
Oh yes, our struggles will be great
We’ll shed so many tears,
But crying sometimes helps our souls
To cleanse away our fears!
I know we’ll get through all of this
And help the world to see,
The dis does not apply to you
Your pure ability!
So now I’ll say a second prayer
To thank Him for your birth,
I’m humbled He chose me to share
His Angel here on earth!

It is so easy to judge someone by what we see. It is also so wrong to do this. If you want to know what someone is about, and who they really are, take the time to get to know them. Every book is deeper than its cover! We just need to take the time to read!
So what if I am in a chair
Does that make me a freak?
I’m just the same as all of you
It’s happiness I seek!
Do you think that I’m less than you
Because I cannot walk?
Don’t judge me by what your eyes see
Let’s sit and have a talk!
When you see me, do you feel sad
And want to show me pity?
Please do not judge me, I am great
I’m smart and kind and witty!
Can you not look me in the eye
Because I cause you fear?
Get over it and realize this
It’s hate from you I hear!
Why do you want to stare at me
And make me feel so odd?
You should remember this one thing
We both came from our God!
He chose to make me who I am
And I am proud of me,
This chair will not get in the way
Of all I plan to be!
So if you can’t get past my chair
I’ll tell you what to do,
Please step aside, I’m moving on
I’m rolling right past you!
