As enjoyable as it was to view the photos, it was also touching to read how the Paid Family Leave program made such an impact for New York families this year:

Summer in NYS

NYPFL has given me the awesome opportunity to spend countless hours of quality time with my son Salvatore (11 months old) enjoying Long Island's beautiful beaches!

Quality time on PFL

This is one of many pictures of my daughter and I bonding on leave. I am very grateful for PFL! My wife had a very difficult birth and complications after so having me home was such a big help. Don't know what we would've done without PFL!

Priceless moments!

We are so thankful for Paid Family Leave, giving us more time together during this period in our lives that is so very fleeting and precious.

Bonding with my little Bree

This photo was taken 3 days after I gave birth to my daughter Aubree Rose. Having family leave allowed me to bond with my daughter without having to worry about returning to work immediately. Very grateful.

Stay-tuned: Sheeja and her family will be featured in ShelterPoint's PFL educational campaign for 2019.  

In the interim we also wanted to share some honorable mentions in this video:

 

Thank you again to all who participated!  To keep all these wonderful photos accessible even after the contest ends, we have created a dedicated Facebook Album.  Check out the real faces of PFL!
