Teen Starts Business to Help with Legal Fees so Stepfather Can Adopt Him: A young man in Cayce, South Carolina, who is only 14 years old, has launched a lawn care business in order to contribute to the financial support necessary for his stepfather to adopt him and complete their family legally.
Not too much time passed before the couple began discussing the possibility of Eric adopting Tyce and his brother, as well as the hire of a lawyer who intended to conduct the adoption for free.
On the other hand, any additional legal fees they incurred would set them back thousands of dollars. In spite of the difficulties involved, the stepsister and the brothers desired to finalize the adoption process.
“This is important because Eric teaches me respect, independence, and what a man is supposed to be,” Tyce said, adding, “Eric is who I’d want to live with if anything ever happens to my mom”:
According to the website of the Adoption Network, nearly 100 million American households are currently home to an adopted member of the nuclear family.
According to the website, “6 in 10 Americans have had personal experience with adoption.” This means that the individual themselves, a member of their family, or a close friend had either been adopted, had adopted a child, or had placed a child for adoption at some point in their lives.
Tyce made the decision to contribute to the expenses, and as a result, Marcy presented him with a lawnmower in the month of May. The following month, the young man created an online advertisement for Tyce & Company Lawn Service:
Photos of the young man toiling away at his job were posted on the social media page of the company.
Tyce has been responsible for approximately 16 yards up to this point, and when it comes to setting his rates, he prefers to negotiate with his clients directly. Since then, he has amassed $400 in earnings.
While this was going on, Eric and Marcy’s plan was to foot the majority of the bill for the adoption.
When users of social media heard the story, they were overcome with emotion. One user commented, “I actually cried reading this.” It’s way too sugary.”
“An incredible remembrance of a wonderful father and a man. Love it!” one more person chimed in.
