31 for 21 Blog Challenge: DAY NINETEEN: A Poem
This poem really touched my heart <3
When you were but a tiny speck
deep within my womb
something happened to your cells
as life began to bloom
a chromosomal anomaly
is what the doctors say
but you are EXACTLY what I asked for
each night as I would pray
"Dear Lord, send me a happy child
who will not grow up too fast,"
for I love the joys of childhood
and I wanted that to last.
'Send me a child who sleeps all night
and doesn't often cry,
a little boy with endless love
and a willingness to try."
That little extra chromosome
that number 21
gave me all I ever wanted
YOU - my precious son
