I want to manipulate my font

I want to change the O in my font to be a circle and not an oval. Is there any way to do this? Its a tall skinny hand written font (YWFT Hannah) so I can't just pull the corners and make it round. I didn't know if there was a way to nudge it? I have both PS, which I'm more comfortable with, and illustrator. Thanks!

It is not a good idea usually to stretch a font, however, if you convert that "O" by itself to a Smart Object in Photoshop, then you can change it's shape in other ways. You can stretch it, make it round, skew it etc.

There are many websites out there that offer free fonts, 1001freefonts.com is one of them, and you may be able to find a better font.

I am trying to get it to be like the O in this ad. Are you suggesting I just find a more circular O and just replace the one letter?

Yes; that would be best.

It will show if it's stretched, and will look weird. In this 365 font project I'm working on I combine all sorts of fonts: http://acorner.net/365fontedition
