The Story of Beautiful Girl by Rachel Simon

Please go out and get this book at once.
I haven't loved a book as much in a very long time. 


A meeting was held quite far from Earth!
It's time again for another birth.
Said the Angels to the LORD above,
This Special Child will need much love.
His progress may be very slow,
Accomplishments he may not show.
And he'll require extra care
From the folks he meets down there.
He may not run or laugh or play,
His thoughts may seem quite far away,
In many ways he won't adapt,
And he'll be known as handicapped.
So let's be careful where he's sent,
We want his life to be content.
Please LORD, find the parents who
Will do a special job for you.
They will not realize right away
The leading role they're asked to play,
But with this child sent from above
Comes stronger faith and richer love.
And soon they'll know the privilege given
In caring for their gift from Heaven.
Their precious charge, so meek and mild,
by Edna Massionilla

Good Morning Becky,

I was reading through the "my story" comments on Becky's {Farmgirl Paints} blog yesterday. I came across yours and your prayer requests. You had been on my heart that morning, and reading your comments I knew Jesus was nudging me to pray specifically for you. It was an honor to lift you up to Him the last couple days.

I wanted to stop by and encourage you in the hope that Jesus hears your heart and your friends' prayers on your behalf. He will see Kaishon through this hard time even though it is heartbreaking right now. Why are the school years so difficult? Hang in there, friend. He is becoming such a strong, wise man and will make it through this time. God is with him each second of the day.

Praying for you, Kaishon, your Daddy and your family. I hope you have a wonderful day and are filled with joy and strength. Love to you!

Rachel (A Cupcake for Moose)

Thanks for the book review. I knew if you liked it, I would too, so I actually bought it already on my Kindle.
I saw the comment above about praying for Kaishon and I have to tell you that he has been on my heart. You haven't posted anything about how things are going, but I pray for him often as God brings him to mind. I pray for you too, because I think this kind of thing is just as hard on the mom as the kid.
Kaishon is an amazing kid and God is right there with him. I;ve prayed for things to go away for my kids also, and sometimes God has said no. It's hard to trust that God knows best in those circumstances, but I know God loves Kaishon even more than you and He will take care of him.

This is Rachel Simon, and I'm the author of The Story of Beautiful Girl. I can't tell you how much your loving post about my book means to me. I would have been moved by it under any circumstances, but even more so because you are a mother who loves her child so deeply. Also, you posted it during Holy Week. Your words are a blessing to me. Thank you.
