“Millie comes from a really hard place. The first two years of her life she was raised in an orphanage, and she comes from hard. Millie’s behaviors are really fear-based, and those behaviors look extreme. There’s a saying that scared children look crazy. She’s not crazy.”
In this video, Marna Pacheco, a member of the Winona Lake, Ind., Grace Brethren Church (Bruce Barlow, lead pastor), tells the story of her daughter, Millie, who was adopted from China when she was two years old. Pacheco shares how her daughter’s special needs inspired her to start Capeable Sensory Products along with her Fort Wayne, Ind., business partner, Susan Hickok. Capeable sells weighted garments to help people with autism or sensory issues.
