Alas, It breaks my heart Gabi’s recovery was not to be As hard as we had all prayed endlessly God chose from her earthly body, her soul to release Giving the ultimate recovery – one of everlasting peace Reminding us all Gabi was indeed a gift from above On loan here only temporarily for all to love Sometimes we forget that life is a gift to be treasured And the number of lives it touches cannot be measured And so too, this little angel with her sweet little smile Touched so many others, although for just a while. Much heartfelt gratitude I extend to the familyFor sharing one so beautiful – this angel named Gabi

I CARRY YOUR HEART
I carry your heart with me I carry it in my heart, I am never without it Anywhere I go you go my dear; And whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling. I fear no fate For you are my fate, my sweet, I want no world For beautiful you are my world, my true And it's you are whatever a moon has always meant, And whatever a sun will always sing is you. Here is the deepest secret nobody knows Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud And the sky of the sky of a tree called life; Which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide And this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart. I carry your heart, I carry it in my heart.

The Down Syndrome Creed
My face may be different but my feelings are the same. I laugh and I cry and take pride in my gains. I was sent here among you to teach you to love, as God in the heavens looks down from above. To Him, I'm no different His love knows no bounds; It's those here among you in the cities and towns, that judge me by standards that man has imparted, but this family I've chosen, will help me get started. For I'm one of the children so special and few, that came here to learn the same lessons as you. That love is acceptance, it must come from the heart; we all have the same purpose, though not the same start. The Lord gave me life to live and embrace, and I'll do it as you do, but at my own pace.
I had a dream the other night. It came to me so clear. I stood before the throne of God,afraid to come too near. God said to me, "I hear your prayers. There are answers you can't find. I brought you here to talk to me and help to ease your mind. "I said,"Well, yes, God, I am upset...About my special one. This punishment is awfully harsh...Whatever have I done?" God looked at me and shook his head, He said, "My Dear, you've got it wrong. I sent this special child to you because you are so strong. I searched and searched to try and find someone with a love so rare. Parents so unselfish they could give him that special care. I try to save my special gifts,like those you're speaking of,for a special kind of parents I call the 'Chosen Ones. 'Of all the ones to choose from,I know I've got it done...Parents who deserve my best,an honor you have won."
