I am overjoyed to share the new venture I have been working on for several months!
But first the story of how it came about…Last year I started the journey to see what it would take to open my home to children on behalf of Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) Foster Care. Along the way, I found that I could not stop seeking knowledge and exploring some of the common characteristics of children from hard places. Specifically, sensory processing development. I continue to learn about altered brain development which impacts the way in which some process sensory data.
This is where I first learned about weighted products and what I believe to be undeniable benefit they provide so many children and adults. These products are not geared toward one type of person, but rather anyone who benefits from deep pressure addressing proprioceptive sensory input. This includes a huge audience of people that experience all sorts of issues. Some examples could be Autism, Sleep Disorders, Restless Leg Syndrome, Anxiety, Hyperactivity or just anyone who feels like they could use a hug.
I am committed to being a champion of these types of products, therefore launching The Home Stitch.
