Project Report | Jun 6, 2022
The Graduate

By Cindy Chapman | Aunt Cindy

Sammy against all odds
Sammy against all odds

Sammy is graduating High School next week. My amazing nephew. He could have been forever lost in the Foster care system. I thank God for the remarkable opportunity my Sister Linda Conforti, a nurse, and her life-altering organization, Angels in Waiting, provided for Sammy and thousands of other little souls -who need a safe harbor to weather the storm life has thrown at them. Sensing the power of unquestioning love through the skilled hands of a dedicated nurse, they call Mommy. 

I remember as a baby; his Healthcare Team didn't have much hope for Sammy. Claiming he will deeply struggle his whole life. As a baby, we welcomed Sammy into our family with no limitations, challenges -yes, limitations -no. 

Sammy thrived in his world, addressing his challenges head-on and overcoming his bleak prognoses and challenges. Sammy is a bright, evolved, hard-working, sweet soul! As he graduates from High School, I marvel at Sammy's other milestones. He graduated from a bleak life-treating birth at 23-weeks gestational age, navigated through his mother's drug addiction, countless surgeries, painful medical procedures, and numerous Code Blues. Sammy graduated from the words of medical experts that gave him a dismal cognitive and medical prognosis. He even graduated from the cruel, judgemental eyes of others, the struggles of schooling in a system unsympathetic to his challenges and learning method.

How I wish I could attend all the other graduations of extraordinary souls, Angels In Waiting charity helped usher onto the graduation ceremony stages! 

So many success stories just from my sister's; Linda Conforti's home... Imagine the ripple effect of hundreds of other Nurses opening their homes and hearts to these medically fragile foster care babies, children, and youths. A domino effect that is truly amazing to witness! Love equals more Love. Charity equals more Charity. Hope equals more Hope.
