Each of us hears once or twice in our life
Of a miracle that is wrought
When a couple in their middle years
Have a baby they’ve long sought.
A woman in her forties—
Or growing very near—
Learns she is expecting
A longed-for child this year.
Everyone she knows is pleased,
But none so much as she,
To know at last she’ll be a mom
When she thought she’d never be.
The long-delayed “stork” blessing
Will be cherished all the more
By its ecstatic parents
When they bring it in the door
For they understand that God controls
The timing of their joy
And chose the perfect moment
To send their little girl or boy.
