This week’s episode is extra special because it combines all sorts of things we love: our friends, theatre, husbands, building a business, following your heart, and starting a family. Without further ado, we give you: Kyle Dean Massey and Taylor Frey! Today, we discuss their journey from the stage to founding Elevate, a remarkable full-service egg donor agency.
Kyle and Taylor’s desire to help other couples become parents actually came from their own struggles as two gay men in this heteronormative business. The surrogacy process is long and emotional regardless, but there are certain challenges unique to same sex couples. Instead of accepting those challenges and subtle hints that parents should look a certain way, Kyle and Taylor saw a way to make things better. They followed their hearts and created a beautiful, inclusive solution for everyone traveling the same path behind them. It’s great to see their teamwork, their support, and love for one grow right along with this awesome business.
Like Kyle and Taylor, we feel that becoming a parent is one of greatest gifts life can offer. We’re going through the process of becoming dads right now, in fact! It’s been a dream for a long time, and we’re closer to that dream than ever before, but it still takes a team to make that dream a reality. In Elevate’s case, every single member of the team has been through IVF or has donated or has been a surrogate, which is incredibly unique and comforting. In more ways than one, Kyle and Taylor are building families. What an incredible gift to share with the world!
This week’s SPOTLIGHT ON LOVE come to us from our listener Emmett:
I have been in a long distance relationship for three years, and Covid is making it harder than ever to visit each other. Any tips on how to still build our relationship?
Kyle Dean Massey and Taylor Frey are a couple that loves change and movement. When they wanted to talk about having children on date #2, they let it happen. When their careers took them on this unexpected journey, they embraced it and didn’t look back. We think that this is such a rare and inspiring gift for a couple to process. How about you? When have you been faced with the option to take a new path? We’d love to hear your stories!
