Angels In Waiting third quarter report. 


On May 10th Angels In Waiting was once again featured on "The Doctors" television show.  The show highlighted the work that AIW had done to help heal the trauma at Sandyhook.  The AB Bill 1133 that is currently before the California state legislature was also touched upon in the initial filming.  AIW greatly appreciates the  exposure that this show has generated and the potentiality of working with the Dr. Phil Foundation in the future.   

AB Bill  1133

The initial voting by the Assembly Floor produced an unanimous 71-0 approval of this bill that will generate the funds necessary to treat the destitute foster care infants and children whose lives have been impacted by drugs, abuse and genetic anomalies.  Linda West-Conforti will be traveling to Sacramento at the beginning of June to witness the final Senate vote on AB1133.  
Sammy, "the miracle baby," who overcame death four times and who has survived to become an intelligent ten-year old will be accompanying Linda.  Sammy is a sterling example of how the unique, specialized care that Angels In Waiting offers can turn a premature tragedy of a drug-addicted mother into a well-adjusted thriving child. We are also focusing on setting up funds for these children that will cover special education needs and eventually higher education.  


The  senior producers of the Hallmark station show, "Home And Family," have expressed  interest in featuring AIW on  a segment that should film in late June or early July.  We understand that this show has an audience of ninety million viewers and will be a marvelous opportunity for AIW in terms of introducing our organization and the Nurse-Foster Parent program to a large segment of the population.  

As the longest day of the year, the summer solstice, approaches, we wish all our benefactors illumination and tranquality.

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 California Billions 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.

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, December6th 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.

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:


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