Assembly Bill 1133

How Many Angels Must We Send Back to Heaven, And How Many Billions Of Dollars Must California Spend?

Angels In Waiting (AIW), a 501c3 charity created by nurses, has been granted AB 1133 carried by Assemblywoman, Holly Mitchell, District 54, which encompasses UCLA.  AB 1133, will implement AIW’s Nurse-Foster Parent Program throughout California. Our cost effective, innovative program literally has the potential to save the state of CaliforniaBillions of dollars and Countless Childhoods! Your support for our AB 1133 will help us get this viable bill into law. Together, we can make a very significant impact on this rapidly growing and increasingly tragic problem.  Plus, we will have the resources to recruit more qualified nurses, who have the homes and sensitive hearts necessary to provide the special nursing care and dedication needed to help California’s growing legions of medically- fragile, foster care infants and children so that they can thrive and succeed. During this year’s National Women’s Political Caucus in Sacramento, which two professors from UCLA and AIW’s team attended, we submitted our innovative and cost saving Nurse-Foster Parent program.  Many of the Legislators displayed a strong interest in carrying our AB Bill.  However, due to Holly Mitchell’s deep commitment to improving the foster care system and the fact that her district encompasses UCLA, we felt Assemblywoman, Holly Mitchell, would be the best fit for our Assembly Bill.

AIW Nurse-Foster Parent program offers a significant improvement in the delivery of healthcare to California’s high–risk, medically fragile foster care population, while offering substantial fiscal savings in comparison to institutionalized care settings, group homes or ill-educated, poorly supported foster care homes for the medically fragile. Please refer to the endorsement letter from Kern County Public Health Services.  

 

Conclusion:  The Future With Your  Support

In the years since its inception, AIW has helped find permanent homes for 180 infants and children and has recruited 40 plus nurses who have medically fragile children in their homes, with approximately 15 nurses currently obtaining instruction from DFCS and or Medi-Cal. However, the licensing of these nurses has been held up in the process due to the prolonged wait for CCL to licenses our Nurse-Foster Parent homes. AIW is launching a campaign to duplicate our “Nurse Foster Parent" program throughout Los Angeles County and then into all of the counties of California and onto the nation.  Together, “WE” have the ability to Save Countless Childhoods & Countless California Tax dollars, to the sum of Billions of dollars! AB 1133 will drastically reduce the hospital re-admission rate; and a preeminent saving in state funds will result from the fact that historically 90% of our nurses adopt the children that they have restored to health.

HEART OF WINTER 

Angels In waiting fourth quarter report
Heart Of The Matter

As we approach the darkest day of winter, December 21st, and become enveloped in this heart of darkness, the interplay between light and darkness becomes quite apparent.  This is indeed a time of renewal, but spiritual uplift cannot transpire without first going through a dark night of the soul.  It is quite true that the heart is a lonely hunter and must find its own way through a time when light diminishes but presages a period of new illumination.  Angels In Waiting finds itself in such a point in its arc through the year.  We have recently found ourselves uplifted by great potentiality, but in our Icarian flight we have also seen our hopes melted by a number of obstructions.  We do believe that we are on the verge of a number of exciting breakthroughs that will strongly impact a number of hearts and lives.
Doctors And Angels 

Angels In Waiting completed filming of "The Doctors' Show" in November.  The show will air on Thursday, December 6th at 2 PM Pacific Time on CBS.  The doctors on the show were quite receptive and very generous in their praise of the organization.  They completely opened their hearts to AIW as did the people who were involved in the technical aspects of the show.  We believe that the show will fill the wings of AIW and begin to give our organization the recognition that is essential in soaring to new levels of societal and financial receptivity.  
Singing From The Heart   
AIW also recorded a commercial last month that has several of the children singing.  The producers of the commercial have stated that they plan to make extensive usage of this commercial that could play on prime time television.  When this screening transpires, it will be excellent, additional exposure for our organization.  
Village Apothecary   
Our apothecary boutique in Lake Arrowhead Village continues to expand and has added new merchandise, including designer nurses scrubs that are becoming increasingly popular.  We are also creating an ever-increasing following among the local residents. 
The future will undoubtedly hold many exciting gifts for Angels In Waiting, and we thank again our "spirit of Christmas" benefactors for their marvelous generosity and holiday hearts.

Angels And Herbalism:

Angels In Waiting has focused over the summer months in expanding its herbalism-apothecary store in order to create a wider client base in our efforts to significantly increase the funds that will create a solid fiscal foundation for our organization.  We continue to analyze new products that will assist in strengthening the immune systems of our clients and in reducing inflammation.  We have also focused on the creation of a line of skin care products that utilize very rare and unique botanicals.  Our mail order business is also expanding, and we invite all the fine people at Global Giving to explore our many potent products. We have experienced very favorable receptivity from both residents of the area and travelers from most of the states and a large number of foreign countries.  They find our angelic apothecary-boutique to be charming and spiritually uplifting.   

Public Relations Expertise: 

This summer we have also been very fortunate to connect with a charming lady who is a recognized expert in marketing and promulgating start-up organizations to the next level of multifaceted success.  She is working to arrange high-end fundraisers and television time for Angels In Waiting.  AIW is quite excited about the potentiality to see our organization ride on the wings of newly envisioned opportunities.

CBS’s The Doctors:

We will keep you posted on our upcoming segment on CBS’s, “The Doctors,” Three of Angels In Waiting’s nurses and their adopted little angels will be spotlighted on The Doctors. We will keep you posted on the airdate once we are privy to the date our segment will be on-air. 

Nurses In Waiting:

We continue to have many inquiries from nurses who come into the shop and who are interested in taking in these medically fragile infants.  We are working to expedite the process through which they can become qualified to fulfill this extremely humanitarian undertaking. 

 

We salute all our wonderful donors.

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE HEALING POWERS OF A NURSE, BECAUSE MIRACLES DO OCCUR IN THE HANDS OF NURSES…

In an effort to create funds to sustain Angels In Waiting, an “Angels and Herbs” store was created in March in Lake Arrowhead Village, California.  Our non-profit status enabled us to obtain excellent terms on the lease, and we have been very impressed at the generosity of the Lake Arrowhead Village Management.  Residents of the area and vacationers have been very receptive to the mission of Angels In Waiting; Helping America’s underprivileged infants and children by utilizing Nurses to rescue our medically fragile foster care infant and children.

The store has also given us a considerably wider exposure to attract nurses into the organization.  The fact is, we are overjoyed with the number of quality nurses we have and continue to recruit from our Angels In Waiting storefront located in the beautiful Lake Arrowhead resort known as The Village. The theme of our store is  “Angels & Herbs”.  As soon as you cross the threshold of our entry, we offer a touching angelic experience, by displaying touching stories and photos of the children we have restored back to health, intermingled with magnificent statues of angels. Angels In Waiting, offers a wide array of angel gifts and angelic art.  We also offer a sound approach to the distribution of pharmaceutical grade herbs, nutritional supplements, vitamins, probiotics, teas and other Non-FDA regulated medications.  We specialize in offering a bio–herbal treatment plan including a weighted and/ or compression vest curriculum for autism children. We also provide Advocacy services, to help the child in school to be able to receive the necessary educational services in order for them to reach their highest potential.

Our store within its short time of operation has contributed considerably to the funds and exposure necessary to make AIW a successful and economically viable organization.     If any of our friends at Global Giving are vacationing in the Lake Arrowhead area, we would be thrilled if you would drop by the shop.  Our number is (909) 336-3058.  We also hope that you will pass on our web site to your friends and family:  www.angelsinwaitingUSA.org.

With the deepest of respect, and gratitude, Thank You, for your donations and dedication to our noble cause.

LUPERCALIA:  DAY OF THE WOLF
Valentine's day is a day of ribald revelry.  It is day when crystalline champagne flows through the soul and creates an effervescence of the spirit.  On this day legions of chocolate fountains pay homage to the great prophet Hershey, and untold millions of blood-red roses form a sanguine tapestry that celebrates the color of life. It is a day when lovers and lunatics come to crave the raging irrationality and forceful strength of love.  The word Valentine itself derives from the Latin Valentinus and means literally strength.  Valentine's day is strong meat, and the church's attempts to gloss over this fact have been futile.  From a recent historical perspective, it was also the day when a dozen hoods bumped off a dozen other hoods in The St. Valentine's Day Massacre.  The result was a dozen blood-red hoods.  In truth, this day was intentionally chosen to carry out this hit as a sacrifice to the entity whom gangsters and plutocrats worship as their one true, sociopathic deity.  
The truth about Valentine's day is that the name is quite apocryphal.  The church fabricated a story about a kindly priest named Valentinus in an attempt to expunge the original celebration, which was the Bacchanalian Lupercalia, The Day Of The Wolf.  The Lupercalia was part of the mythos encompassing the origin of Rome itself.  The legendary founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus, were said to have been born of the god Mars and the archetypal Vesta, the eternal virgin.  Vesta feared that Romulus and Remus would be murdered, so she put them in a basket on the Tiber.  The she-wolf, Reminus, found the infants and raised them.  Their feral survival marked the beginning of the eternal city, Rome.  The pre-spring rites of passion and catharsis came to be celebrated in honor of Romulus and Remus and the great wolf that raised them in the den of strength, the Valentinus.  The Lupercalia was a prelude to the dance of spring, and it was filled with numerous rituals of blood and terror; rites that would seem incomprehensibly barbaric to the modern eye.  However, they were attempting to purge their society of all the negative forces that plagued it, and such a titanic catharsis requires the invocation of The Great God Pan, god of primordial nature.  This celebration was originally a week long Rite Of Spring but was later reduced to the evening of February 14th and the day of the 15th.  
An element of this mythos that is particularly striking is the concept of a wolf raising human infants that had been abandoned by humanity.  They had been thrown to wolves, and these wolves nurtured them.  Over the ages there have been a number of fairly well-documented incidences of cast-off human children being raised by wolves.  Possibly humanity can learn something about its own humanity from these wolves that would take in the defective children of humanity.  In truth, the human race is tremendously indebted to these totem animals that taught our Paleolithic antecedents the art of the hunt and who showed them that passionate, primal nature was to be revered, which was the origin of the Great Lupercalia.  
The recent donations to Angels In Waiting have been quite sterling and have enabled our organization to keep the wolf from the door.
