How We Got Started
My name is Camille. Welcome to my site! I am a military wife and Mommy to two perfect little boys. Our youngest was diagnosed with PDD-NOS and SI when he was 3 ½ yrs old.
Receiving the diagnosis was a terrible blow to us. It seemed Autism was something that happened to other people’s children, not ours. Who would have thought it would actually be such a blessing!
The occupational therapist recommended a weighted vest for Sam. She gave me the names of a couple companies that sold them. I was shocked to find they came with a $120 price tag. At his rate of growth that would be two a year! A good number of us simply cannot afford that.
I spent a good many of my childhood hours sewing with my Mamo. She has a gift; she can look at something, create a pattern and make it. I dug my sewing machine out of the top of the closet, dusted it off and discovered I am blessed with the same gift. I made Sam a vest, then a couple for other children. Before I knew it a business was born. I have been making vests and more for over three years.
I always think of “Abilities not Disabilities” when I think of these children. It is my mission to help as many children as possible. I will not stop until we have recovered as many as possible. I will not stop until they all reach their own pinnacle.
