Since childhood, Rami Aizic knew he always wanted to be a father and just assumed that one day he would meet a woman, fall in love, and it would all fall into place.

Then he realized he was gay.

Robin Share wanted to be a mother, but she did not have a partner, so when a friend introduced them and they hit it off, they began making plans to have a baby together.

At StoryCorps, Rami and Robin talk about their journey to become parents to their now 14-year-old daughter.
