Senator Susan Collins is to be commended for her foresight and vision to see a problem and address it before it becomes an unmanageable catastrophe. First of all, grandparents, and let's not forget aunts and uncles, who are willing, loving and capable of taking care of these children should receive all the support they need. It's a far better solution than foster care as it better promotes continuity with familial relationships. These families should also receive the same financial support and resources as foster families do. Our children are our greatest resource and should be treated as such.
