Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️ 🌹 😍
To celebrate today, a few of our people are sharing moments about how Facebook has showed up, supported them and shipped love.
Says Ben, "The call came in on February 13th, 2014. The county urgently needed a foster family to care for a three-month-old. With less than a day’s notice, our foster son Owen joined our family on Valentine's Day, 2014. A quick Facebook post, and all our co-workers and neighbors swooped in with a crib, diapers, and everything else we needed!
The next day, visiting the Facebook office, everything was smiles and giggles when Sheryl Sandberg (@sherylsandberg) bounced Owen on her knee — then she rushed us to a nearby Mother's Room to change him. A learning experience for sure!
Thanks to Facebook’s parental leave policy, I spent Owen’s first few months caring for him part-time at home. Now, on Valentine's Day 2017, we are so thankful to be Owen's adoptive Forever Family. Best. Valentine's. Gift. Ever." #ValentinesDay #ShipLove #FacebookLife #FBFamily #ConnectTheWorld
