New Weighted Vest

Grant received his new weighted vest!  He outgrew the weight of the other vest and needed a heavier one.

A local church ministry called Wrapped in Love sews weighted items for children with sensory needs (click here to read more about the benefits of weighted items for sensory integration). Sometimes the ministry sews a vest from scratch but often they use a vest (either provided by a parent or purchased from a consignment store/sale) and modify it with pockets of weight pellets following a specific formula that takes the child's weight into account. What a blessing!

A great example of people using their talents to help others!


  1. What a cool ministry! We just tried a weighted vest for the first time today but we didn't have a whole lot of success with it so far. Glad it works for you guys!!!

  2. He looks so cute and like he likes it. God is good at meeting our needs.

  3. I love the song Blessings by Laura Story. God has been teaching me this very thing. Thank you!
