Nationwide, more than 600,000 infants and children live in foster care. The number of foster care preemies has tripled in the last 20 years. Many of these infants who have suffered abuse and neglect have fallen through the cracks of our fractured child welfare system. Increased teen pregnancies and epidemic drug use by pregnant women have resulted in an escalating number of Foster Care Preemies and infants who are medically fragile. We need highly skilled Nurses to bring them into their homes.
Our mission is to move medically fragile foster care preemies, infants, and children into private residences under the care of Registered and Licensed Vocational Nurses as their foster parents. Angels In Waiting authored Assembly Bill-1133, which became California State Law in 2014, This Law is insuring, medically fragile foster care infants and children go into the homes of nurses, before going to group homes and institutional care settings. Our goal is to implement this program Nationwide.
Due to the growth of illicit drug use among pregnant women, there will always be a need for our innovative nursing program and compassionate highly trained nurses willing to embrace our medically fragile foster care population, by providing them with a loving, safe and nurturing home environment. As the founder of our charity of nurses, I have seen first-hand: The healing powers of nurses and witness miracles occurring through the Hearts & Hands of our noble Nurse-Foster parents!
