Kate Crump, who was grieving the loss of her son, invited every mama she knew who had experienced the same loss to have dinner together and to share stories of their Angels. 

Kasie Ballard, a Bereavement Doula, had made Heidi Anderson the first Laken Sloth and Kate requested one. That evening, she brought one for Kate- the very first Ellett Deer. 

The Ellett Deer was passed around and everyone agreed that these Weighted Angels were something that loss families needed.


The non-profit was formed, with the mission to get these animals into the local hospitals so that no family had to leave with empty arms.

Now, Weighted Angels services 7 Virginia Peninsula Hospitals and help provide some comfort to approximately 120 grieving families.
