OUR OPINION: Kinship families should get more state support

I love how morally superior these Our Opinion articles are, and sometimes I agree with them but...
Children from disrupted households fare well when cared for by grandparents and other relatives, but bake sales don't raise enough money to cover expenses.

I agree that kinship caregivers need more support.  They are saving the state a ton of money in foster care costs.  I also think that the families who are at risk need more support so that these kinds of disruptions in a child's life can be avoided in the first place.

Of course, our Governor would just call it welfare and tell these people to get a better job.
