Love This


I just found this poem on another blog. It is so great.  It is equally true for my severely disabled child as it is for my typically developing child. I'm so glad I happened upon it this morning.

I Still would have chosen you - By Terri Banish.

If before you were born,
I could have gone to heaven and saw all the beautiful souls,
I still would have chosen you... ... ...
If God had told me, "This soul would one day need extra care and needs", I still would have chosen you
If He had told me, "This soul may make your heart bleed", I still would have chosen you
If He had told me, "This soul would make you question the depth of your faith", I still would have chosen you
If He had told me, "This soul would make tears flow from your eyes that could fill a river", I still would have chosen you
If He had told me, "This soul may one day make you witness overbearing suffering", I still would have chosen you
If He had told me, "All that you know to be normal would drastically change", I still would have chosen you
Of course, even though I would have chosen you, I know it was God who chose me for you.




The kids in all their morning glory this morning!
