Elyce & Seith

Dear Expectant Mother,

We would like to begin by telling you how much we admire your strength and courage, for those are the attributes that it must take to be able to make and follow-through with such a difficult decision. It is selfless and brave.

If you choose us as an adoptive family, we will make sure that your child is raised in a happy, nurturing, supportive, protective environment. We will give your child a great education, a spiritual foundation, and make sure that your child knows their past, and have the confidence to navigate their future. But most importantly, we will love your child with all our heart.

Beyond our responsibility to house, clothe, feed and educate, we believe our job as parents is to give children a safe space to discover themselves. We want to cultivate this little person into the best possible version of themselves – who God has designed them to be. It will be our honor.

Warmly,

Elyce and Seith


About Us

contact

We are a loving, happy, very social couple. We met in 2006 when Elyce helped Seith get a job on the television show she was working on. Our first date was at an Ethiopian restaurant, where Seith ordered for Elyce, doro wat and honey wine. Seith still works in television as a director, and his hobbies are reading, photography, and yoga, while his interests are movies, art, politics, and music. Elyce no longer works in television, but is currently getting a masters degree in crea-tive writing and her hobbies are reading (she is a part of a book club), writing, exercising, while her interests include politics, music, and bringing awareness to important social causes through her writing.


Our Home

contact

Our home is a 4-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath home with a patio out back that is enclosed with an electrical gate. There is also a nice front porch with a swing. Our neighborhood is home to one of the best and most diverse charter schools in the city, literally a five-minute walk away. The neighborhood is largely diverse, both socio-economically and racially, which we love!


Our Family Traditions

contact

Both of us came from very close families independently, and we have brought that into our unit-ed family. We are a loving, silly couple. There is a lot of laughter in our home. We moved back to the South, to be closer to both sides of our family. One tradition we started early in our marriage was to spend Christmas in our home, but alternate Thanksgiving each year between the dif-ferent sides of the family. And usually, the other side will come with. It’s great, festive fun, full of good times, great food, and vivid moments. We are also a vey spiritual family. We pray eve-ry morning, before we get on a plane, and whenever else we want or need guidance. We intend to expose our children to our faith and share our beliefs with them.


What Led Us To Adoption

contact

After we had our first child, we very much wanted a second. But after a few years without a successful pregnancy, we began to discuss adoption as another option to grow our family. This was not the first time we had talked about adoption. Before we got married, Seith told Elyce that at some point, he would like to adopt. His Dad is not his biological father, but the man that raised him since he was three. Like his Dad, Seith always wanted to give the gift of fatherhood to someone to whom he was not genetically linked. Now to be frank, we always planned to have a few biological children and then adopt, but ultimately, we have decided that adoption would not only allow us to expand our family at this time, but also help a child that needs a family.
