Through The Hearts & Hands of Nurses ~ LA

By Linda West-Conforti RN | CEO/ Founder

Through The Hearts & Hands Of Nurses
Through The Hearts & Hands Of Nurses

On July 10th 2015, Los Angeles County of Children and Family Services requested a second contract with Angels In Waiting to recruit more Nurse-Foster Providers. The agency enthusiastically complemented AIW’s ability to recruit more than 22 nurses when the agencies contract only requested 10 Nurse-Foster Providers.

Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services “Recruitment Team” is a pleasure to work with, they are truly a dedicated team of professionals trying to save as many medically fragile foster care infant and children as they can through the hearts and hands of local nurses. Everyday, our recruitment team is faced with a rapidly growing population of medically fragile foster care infants and children. This is due to a rise in illicit drug usage and profound physical abuse. All of these angels in waiting need to find a home and a nurse foster Mommy or Daddy to care for them.

Sadly, most of the foster care population are premature infants who were delivered very early due maternal drug use. A crisis many of our local Neo-natal Intensive Care Units are experiencing due to the rise in the combined use of Meth and Black Tar Heroin creating a profound healthcare crisis of unseen proportions. In the past several months, AIW helped place many medically fragile infants, that are on methadone or similar potent synthetic pharmaceuticals to mitigate heartrending illicit-drug withdrawals, these painful withdraws only complicates these preemies underlying medical conditions that qualify these innocent souls as medically fragile.

Angels In Waiting would like to commend Los Angels Department of Children and Family Services for “Stepping-up once again” and requesting AIW’s help in recruiting more Nurse-Foster Providers for their growing medically fragile foster care population. Nurse-Foster Providers is a cost-effective and a healthier alternative than placing innocent infants and children into group homes, institutional care settings, or into homes with less educated and poorly supported foster parents.

Thank You, Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services “Recruitment Team” for reaching out to AIW once again to help your medically fragile foster care population in finding loving homes, and a good chance for being adopted, through the hearts and hands of Nurse-Foster Providers. For I have seen first hand the miracles that occur through the hearts and hands of our Nurse-Foster Providers.
