In Your arms I'll always be :)
Many years ago there was a newly married couple
Who had to go through so much of trouble
After five years a ray of hope shone through dark clouds
When they were expecting a small one to come out loud.
Small long head shot through to this world
A blue baby with no tears like a pearl
The doctor gave a good smack to the bum
Little eyes started crying for her mom.
This beautiful baby girl was oh so fragile and had to handle with care
Her heart was weak with holes that needed to be repaired
Her hands and feet were so small and under weight
She was like a tender flower so for her strength they stayed.
Doctors diagnose her with trisomy X
Which caused her heart and mental stress
As she grew, parents prepared for the operation
Her heart was sewn but too slow in communication.
She was late to walk and used to push her bum on the floor
But she was clever with words of her own as she explored
Though the world around her was overwhelming for her
She was creative as a good day dreamer.
She was clumsy and lethargic which didn't make any sense
How hard she fought to make things right in her defense
Everything was futile as she couldn't change
Slow to express as she felt oh so lonely and strange.
Emotionally imbalanced she, thought that she was going crazy
Hyper sensitivity that made her scared searched for safety
Almost until the day she tried to take her life away
God who loved her saw and sent an angel on her way.
"Jesus loves you", the angel who stopped her said
" He'll never leave you nor forsake" a voice near to the bed
Since then she cried out to Him whenever she felt lonely and scared
Heavenly Father's love calmed her down and His comfort shared.
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." - Psalms 139:14
"Before I formed you in your mother's womb I chose you. Before you were born I set you apart. I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations." - Jeremiah 1:5
"It was you who formed my internal organs, fashioning me within my mother's womb." - Psalm 139:13
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." - Jeremiah 29:11
"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people to be his very own and to proclaim the wonderful deeds of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." - 1 Peter 2:9
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” - Matthew 11:28-30
Her continuous time of the month got out of order
So it was an early 'Bye bye, baby bye bye for her'
She lived by God's grace with love so great
Encouraged others to live by unwavering faith.
She had a challenging childhood and teen life
Due to birth defects memory was the greatest strife
Since the time she was surrounded by God's perfect love
She realized that she has a plan and purpose somehow.
As she thought about others before her needs
She prayed for women who desired to give birth to their families
Even if her womb was removed for treatment sake
She wasn't jealous as she embraced life which was no mistake.
So the Father God who loved her sent someone special
An unexpected blessing who was understanding, kind and gentle
To take care of her as a companion in holy matrimony
To share and care as well as to build her very own family.
The beauty that you are bringing to my soul :)
Trisomy X is also known as Triplo-X, triple X, XXX syndrome, 47,XXX aneuploidy. Females with triple X syndrome have three X chromosomes instead of two, but only two chromosomes are functioning and the other one is dead.
In Sri Lanka only five are found with this syndrome as far as I heard. Those who are with this, happens to be affected in different ways, though not handicapped they tend to be average in many ways. Lack of physical energy, taller than the normal and under weight.
It is also called 'SUPER WOMAN SYNDROME' but I don't understand what so super about that since those who go through it are unable to become pregnant. They can have a normal married life without children of their own unless the couple adopt someone else's child as their own.

The best medicine for those who go through this is loads of attention, loving care and understanding her with patience as the Father God designed her, before she was even in her mother's womb, He planned her size, the color of her eyes, the color of her skin, everything about her! When God created her, He made her exactly the way He planned.
True love and acceptance do wonders :)
