I took care of both of my parents while working full-time, and as a single parent. I understand the struggle in trying to maintain the balance. It was tough.
I took care of my mother and father before their passing for up to a year. I did it for love of them both while also raising a family.
It breaks my heart to see women have to struggle and worry so much in a time in life that should be happy. We should be allowed to take care of our families and not be punished for it.

I support strong public policy on paid family leave so that everyone has the time to be with their family when they are needed most, and so that nobody is left out.
