Welcoming Our Piece of Heaven

Sissy knew you before we did
She longed for you in her dreams
She began to voice her need for you
And so the thought of you came true
Your uniquely made heart
Led us to your particular being
You joined us in this world early
You melted our hearts immediately
Our preconceived notions of trisomy 21
were replaced by who you truly are
What I would give to show you this world
is as willing to love the way you do
We awaken each day
to open the hearts and minds of those
who are yet to learn the teachings of
the pieces of Heaven with an extra chromosome
Our voices will be heard
Our goal is to make the places that bring you joy the safest of all
To keep you laughing as you slide and swing,
to bring you comfort that friends will be near
Your path to your future will be filled
with droves of those you cheer
May God lead you to help those who fear my sweet dear
