Every year, tens of thousands of infants are abandoned by or taken away from drug addicted mothers. Many are born premature, end up as wards of the state in neo-natal intensive care units, and eventually, the foster care system. They are hard to place and often end up warehoused in group homes or institutions and forgotten. The “lucky” ones get placed in foster homes with caretakers who are ill-equipped to deal with a child with extreme medical needs. Approximately 15% of them perish from a combination of medical problems that don’t receive the necessary attention and a lack of love and connection to other human beings resulting in a condition known as “failure to thrive,” which makes them give up the will to live.

Angels in Waiting was founded by National Nurse of the Year nominee, Linda West-Conforti to address this dire need. After being alarmed by the number of meth and opioid addicted babies coming through our local maternity wards. Linda, fostered and then adopted two of those infants, and started the non-profit to match nurses as foster parents with medically fragile foster care infants and children. The program has been an unqualified success, with 85% of our infants and children ending up adopted- permanent members of the nurses’ families.

In 2014, Angels in Waiting created State Law Chapter # 490: This state law requires that, when determining the placement of a foster child who is medically fragile, “Priority Consideration” will be given to placement with a foster parent who is an independent nurse provider. 

AIW. does an incredible amount on a shoestring budget, but they could do so much more with additional funding. There are so many medically fragile foster care infants and children in need of competent loving care through the hearts and hands of America's nurses.
