It seems like everyone is in a race to be the best -- the best parent, the best spouse, the best neighbor, the best PTA president. To become the best, people often lose sight of the things that really matter. Unfortunately, I've even seen this in my own life. As my husband worked toward a law degree, I pushed forward, day after day, trying my best to be a supportive wife -- the best homemaker, the best mom, the best neighbor, etc. But I often found myself burned out and discouraged. At times, I just couldn't do it.

If you are a childless couple yearning to be parents, adoption may be the perfect plan "B" for you. My husband and I were such a couple. From the beginning, our plan "A" included bringing children into the world. We were each raised in families that provided us with siblings, so we not only wanted a child, we wanted siblings for our children. As children, we loved our brothers and sisters. As adults, we love them even more.

Finding a doctor can be hard work when there are hundreds to choose from. A good family doctor, one you will see more than any other, is especially hard to find. He will see you for flu shots, yearly check-ups and all things in-between that arise. He is the one who will refer you to specialists and advise you on your overall health. Finding just the right doctor to fit your family's needs is extremely important. You need to feel comfortable with him, trust him and feel safe taking your health concerns to him. It took me a lot ...

I've come to know the sound all too well -- the unmistakable suction of the breast pump. In fact, my breast pump and I have spent so much time together there are times I think it's talking to me, and sometimes not saying very nice things! Perhaps some are familiar with that distinctive noise as well if they've been as unlucky as me with what I was told would be natural and wonderful.

Chances are your husband is not expecting a dozen red roses from you. However, he wouldn't mind hearing words of appreciation. Telling your husband how thankful you are for the things he has done or telling him how much you love him is a good start to making his day a better one.

We teach our children to walk, talk, chew 32 times, brush their teeth, pick up their clothes and be kind to others. We teach them to turn off the lights when they leave a room and not to play with matches. We teach them to drive cars and send out thank-you notes. The list is endless. We teach them so much more than the schools they attend. We prepare them for life.

As students flood the campuses of the country's elite colleges this fall, those schools remain, mostly, enclaves of privilege.
