PLEASE CHECK BACK EACH DAY FOR NEW DESIGNS AND UPDATES AS TO AVAILABILITY!
A few posts back I announced the launch of PROJECT T.L.C. which is a faith based ministry started by 3 of us moms who have adopted children from Crimea. Our first initiative is to help bring much needed feminine and basic hygiene supplies to the very institution where Reagan was adopted from. This institution is run by a director whom is most skeptical about adoption and for whom we asked you all to pray to change her heart. Your prayers worked and she allowed the first ever adoption from her facility and it was for our sweet Reagan.
Well, our fundraising for this project has been set at a goal of $2,000. Madelaine and I, as well as our very good friend Dana, have been busy sewing stylish weighted lap blankets in hopes of raising the money needed in order to help the young girls at this institution in Belogorsk. As a mom of a daughter with Down syndrome and autism as well as a son who has severe sensory issues, I know just how much these blankets can help. When we started researching lap blankets the price overwhelmed us and the choice of design left us feeling blah. The weighted lap blankets help our children who have spent their childhood in an environment that was void of any loving touch or stimulation. They can be taken with a child to school, in the car, and to various activities. The cute designs do not bring attention to your child that a typical weighted blanket does because it looks like a small quilt rather than an industrial made product. The weight from the blanket helps to calm a child because it gives them a sense of where their body is in space. For our children who have been with us from birth, endured all of the loving a cute baby receives from any and everyone who crosses their path, and naturally was caressed and spoke to in a loving way this is not a big problem but for our children who never were held other than to occasionally change a diaper or move to another spot something as simple as touch can be painful. It was that way for our sweet Carrington when we first brought her home but thanks to her blanket and our persistence (loving) she now wants to be held all the time.
Once you have ordered your blanket we will fill it with the poly plastic beads and within two business days will ship it to you. Not only will your child have a handcrafted weighted lap blanket but you will have helped Project T.L.C. to Remember the 99! This is the title of our first project. If you have not read about our ministry please visit: http://www.hiskidstoo.org/about-us/our-mission/project-tlc. It is our pleasure to be working side by side with a fabulous Christian organization entitled His Kids Too! Together our ministries hope to eradicate the need for the term orphan. Won't you please join us in helping to remember all the children who have been left behind; the ones we were not able to bring into our homes but who have permanently took up residence in our hearts? For further information on how you may be able to help please feel free to email at ProjectTLC@cox.net.

I am by no means a professional photographer but I wanted to be able to show the front of the blanket and what material is on the back. I did this by folding over a corner or turning up an end. Each blanket is made from donated material so there may not be more than one of a particular design giving you the privalege of being the owner of a Project T.L.C. original:) To order a blanket please leave me a message in the comment box with your contact information and which blanket you are interested in. If that blanket has been sold I will take it off of the post and new ones will show up. You may send payment through Paypal to email@example.com. The blankets will make wonderful gifts as well. If you are sending a blanket to someone as a gift please be sure to let me know that shipping address.
