You heard it - there are 2.7 million children nationwide being cared for by their grandparents and other relatives. Even more grandparents are supporting their grandchildren by providing day care, transportation, and even financial support. Thousands of grandparents fight every day to hold onto healthy relationships with their grandchildren as parents relationships change.
