Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu is joining Republican Senator Chuck Grassley in a national television appearance to promote better foster care for children.
The two senators will appear Friday on the Dr. Phil show to discuss foster care and adoption.
The show will shed light on what life is like for children in foster care, and the issues they deal with even after they are placed in permanent homes.
Landrieu says Friday's show gives youths involved in the foster care system a chance to air their experiences and suggest ways to improve the system.
