Angels In Waiting

AIW is dedicated to recruiting qualified nurses to provide loving homes, nursing care, and other needed services for medically fragile foster care infants and children. We help facilitate the child's move from hospitals, group homes and institutions into private residences under the care of Registered and Licensed Vocational Nurses as their foster parents. We provide two essential ingredients for these children to heal - loving home environments and individualized nursing care.

Kids seek homes for the holidays

Three Little Angels In Waiting

Kids seek homes for the holidays
This year, tens of thousands of foster children in California will face the holidays in hopeful anticipation of a foster or adoptive parent. The holidays are an emotionally taxing time for these children who have lost their biological parents as well as the comfort and security of home. Without a foster or adoptive parent, foster kids can expect to spend the holiday season with other children in a group facility. Angels in Waiting’s goal is to find foster children homes for the holidays so they can experience what every child deserves: the warmth, love and kindness of the holiday season. We will feature children in need of holiday homes over the course of the season. While our ultimate goal is to find holiday homes that can turn into forever homes for these beautiful children—for those unable to foster, your generous donation to Angels in Waiting (AIW) will help us locate foster parents for our holiday angels.  Introducing Octavia, Omega and Omari~

Octavia, born in 2007 is a very girlie girl. She enjoys playing with dolls, coloring and princesses. She also likes watching television, and playing with her brothers. Octavia likes the outdoors and enjoys going to school. She gets along well with other children, and is easily redirected when her behavior calls for it. She has good eating habits and enjoys attention. Omega, born in 2008 is a little boy with a lot of energy. He enjoys playing with his siblings, playing outside, and with toy cars. Omega also enjoys watching television and playing video games. He has good eating habits and eats everything! Omega does have medical necessities and is currently in treatment for sickle cell anemia. He is very playful and loves to laugh. Omari, born in 2010 is the epitome of boy! He likes playing all sorts of sports and games especially outdoors. He enjoys playing with his brother and sister and other children his age. He is known to be a very curious and alert child. He has a good appetite and lots of energy. Octavia, Omega, and Omari are sweet children who are in need of a loving and nurturing home. They are a joy to be around and would be a wonderful addition to a family. Local families preferred. Go to http://heartgalleryla.org/ or call 1-888-811-1121 to foster these children.


If you are unable to foster, please consider making a donation to AIW. Your donation will support the operating costs necessary to find a home for these beautiful children to enjoy the holidays together. Currently Octavia, Omega and Omari face the possibility of being placed in separate homes. Because of Omega’s treatable medical needs, it may be harder to find a family that will care for him and his two siblings. Separation is a blow these siblings simply should not have to experience, especially during the holidays. Thank you for your consideration in fostering or spreading the word about these kids and thank you for making a donation to support the work of AIW, which will enable more foster children in California to find loving homes for the holidays.

Finding Forever Homes for Our Little Angels

Angels In Waiting
Angels In Waiting

Angels in Waiting (AIW) continues to serve medically fragile foster infants and children through its’ partnership with the Department of Children and Family Services. Over the last year, we have learned of hundreds of beautiful angels in waiting seeking forever homes within Los Angeles County. With your contribution, we can reach more nurse foster providers to give these medically fragile children loving homes in which they can thrive.

Meet two of our angels…

Jeramy

A miracle child, never gives up no matter how many bad days he has. He has endured so much in his short life and still always greets you with a smile; a very sweet smile that can brighten your day.  He is non-verbal but his body language speaks a thousand words and his energy will transmit to everyone around him.  You will want to talk to him, listen to music with him and even dance with him. He loves attention and will glow with excitement; his body moves rhythmically to the beat of songs!  

His favorite toys are those that have multi-bright colors and blinking noises.  Although his is limited in his hand movements and mobility, he knows how to maneuver a toy and pull it up to his ear to listen to the sounds, with intent interest. Jeramy also enjoys watching television and “zones” out when his favorite characters are on! 

Jeramy is diagnosed with Rett Syndrome, Shaken Baby Syndrome, Seizure Disorder, Mental Retardation, Global Developmental Delays, Gastro esophageal Reflux, Abnormal intestinal motility, TPN dependent, Chronic Lung Disease, and Mild Obstructive Sleep Apnea.  Yes, Jeramy does need a lot of help and 24-hour care.  However, he has made a strong comeback from a near-death health condition and is making progress every day.  All medical services are in place to help him thrive to the best that he could.

Jeramy is a beautiful child inside and out; and he will be a joy to add to any family. He is of Latino descent and was born in 2007.   With patience and unconditional love and care, your family can help him grow to the fullest.  Please contact Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services at 1-888-811-1121 for more information.

 

Samajai,

Samajai is waiting for his forever home. Despite his multiple medical challenges, a radiance of hope can always be felt through his facial expressions. His determination and will to share his inner joy is wonderful to see. Samajai is alert and he responds when spoken to. He smiles often. He can sit independently and pull himself up to stand. He is a loving little guy that loves to socialize and be around others.

Born in February of 2012, Samajai is dealing with many medical issues which include diagnoses of IUGR (Intrauterine Growth Restriction), Microcephaly, Goblenahr Syndrome, ear anomaly, hypospadias, ventricle septal defect, cleft palate and rib/sternum anomaly. He uses a tracheostomy and is G-tube dependent.

Like everyone else, this little one deserves a chance to have a family that will understand his needs and provide him with unconditional TLC. Is this your family?

If you are interested to learn more about fostering or adopting these angels, please contact Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services at 1-888-811-1121. If you are unable to adopt or foster, please consider making a charitable contribution to Angels in Waiting so we may reach nurses willing to provide loving homes for these children.
