There’s no greater love than that of a mother’s for her children. They are willing to sacrifice everything in their power to provide their children with the best quality of life that they deserve. Racquel Johnson has always done this to ensure that her daughter Kaydence, born with special needs, lived her best life. When she unexpectedly passed away at such a young age, Racquel felt that the best way to immortalize her was through KMJ Love.
KMJ Love is an apparel company that creates clothes for children, especially for children with special needs. Racquel Johnson understands the struggles of finding a fun wardrobe for Kaydence as they always encountered a lack of clothing pieces that were appropriate for her distinctive situation. Finding the right clothes for children is a challenge in itself already, but the task grew harder with limited choices.
Motivated by the lack of clothing brands specializing in children with special needs, Racquel created KMJ Love. The apparel company provides a solution for parents with similar problems by creating a diverse and colorful wardrobe that allows their children to look fashionable and feel comfortable.
KMJ Love provides parents with choices for their children, including bibs, bodysuits, bonnets, onesies, socks, swaddle blankets and even accessories like sili-glow wristbands. Whether they’re only three months old or budding as toddlers, Racquel makes sure that her fellow parents have something to get for their children. Apart from providing parents with fashion choices, Racquel also ensures that the clothes their children wear are made of materials that are also functional. Each piece is made of pure cotton and provides convenience for children who need trachea and g-tubes. By doing so, KMJ Love educates families on how they can love and nurture their children with fashionable clothing choices that they will enjoy.
By creating KMJ Love, Racquel Johnson has become the first black woman to start a clothing line dedicated to families with special needs. The dedication that Racquel has shown is inspiring others who have either gone through the same ordeals or are currently experiencing them. Her journey has not been an easy one, but every time she feels ready to concede, Racquel remembers her brand’s reason and purpose. Upon reflecting, she has no choice but to step out with great confidence and remember that she is the definition of a strong woman.
KMJ is currently developing to create a special needs superhero comic book that is meant to inspire, motivate, and encourage children with special needs. Racquel hopes to empower children with special needs and their families to remain committed to one another as they brave life’s many challenges.
Racquel Johnson is looking to extend the products of KMJ Love to reach hospitals, children’s homes, and health facilities in the United States before taking her franchise worldwide. Racquel also hopes that popular clothing companies will grow interested in the movement as it is her dream to reach every household and go global with KMJ Love.
