Fact of the Day: Hawaii to Indonesia

After his mother divorced his father, Barack Obama later had a stepfather. His stepdad was Lolo Soetoro who met his mother through the University of Hawaii. Soetoro eventually returned to Indonesia, and the future president spent a good bit of his childhood there as a result. Through his mother's 2nd marriage, he also has a sister, Maya Soetoro.

no that's his mom's father. She eventually divorced her 2nd husband as well, so there's really not that many pictures of them all together.
