Adults all over the country are attempting to expand their families by adopting a young person from a foster home. The process can be difficult and time consuming, but the end result brings joy to so many lives. It is a progression that is celebrated every November as National Adoption Month. This years’ theme is “Answering the Call – You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent. There are thousands of teens in foster care who would love to put up with you.”

Barack Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” The announcement was greeted with mixed reactions; some argued that the President has done nothing to earn this prestigious honor, and others felt that he was the most deserving candidate.
The selection of Obama has stirred a lot of conversation. Many people have suggested that he hasn’t done anything to promote peace, and some have claimed that his actions have actually extended the length of one war and helped start another. People who feel he was the right choice think that he has opened the door to bring about international peace and generated a new feeling of hope that has been absent from the world for far too long.
