In our third episode, Circle Surrogacy & Egg Donation President, Sam Hyde, hosts our amazing guest, Brian Rosenberg! Brian is the founder of Gays With Kids which is a continuously growing community of dads, families and industry experts. They provide education, anecdotes and advice for wherever you might be in your journey to fatherhood. 

They chat about Brian's experience growing up during a tumultuous time for gay men surrounding the AIDs crisis, his own HIV status, meeting his husband, and becoming a dad. It's an emotionally charged episode with a beautifully happy ending. You won't want to miss it. 

Brian mentions the clinic partner, RMA CT and Dr. Mark Leondires. RMA CT has recently rebranded and is now called Illume Fertility. You can find more information on Illume here: https://www.illumefertility.com/
