Nurses Clocking In At Home & Saving Medically Fragile Foster Care Infants and Children


Miracles occur through the hearts and hands of nurses…

Angels in Waiting (AIW) is a nonprofit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) charity created by nurses who are addressing the needs of America's growing population of medically fragile foster care infants and children.

The Need

Every year in the United States, tens of thousands of infants and children are abandoned by or taken away from drug addicted mothers. Medically fragile infants are born each day to mothers addicted to illicit street drugs, alcohol, and pharmaceuticals. Often premature, these infants face staggering medical complications when they are born; they start life in pain and discomfort with no loving family or home. In most cases, medically fragile newborns experience lengthy stays in neonatal intensive care units following delivery. After discharge, these infants and children often require critical and complex medical care delivered at home throughout the day. Without a foster home that can adequately manage their care, these fragile infants are placed in medical facilities, institutional care settings and group homes. Approximately 10% will perish from failure to thrive due to the lack of regular, nurturing, loving and stimulating contact that infants need to maintain their will to live.

AIW’s Mission Statement 

AIW's mission is to help the rising population of America’s drug exposed, medically fragile foster care infants, children, and youths. These are America's most vulnerable and underserved population. If they can be fostered by dedicated nurses, they can be assured of growing up in the loving homes, hearts, and hands of nurse providers.
