A first Father's Day, 2 years in the making 

Daniel Acevedo of Selden waited two years to celebrate his first Father’s Day. He and his wife Gina-Marie tried to get pregnant for two years before their daughter Amelia was born. Although Daniel Acevedo will be working this Father's Day, he was able to take off for three months between March and June thanks to New York State’s paid family leave, so he spent all day every day with Amelia during that time.
