Sarah Clevenger's Profile

About

Hi! We are Eric and Sarah Clevenger. We have been married since 2007, but together for much longer than that. We have always known that we wanted to have a family someday thinking that, like most people, when the time was right we would just get pregnant. Some things don't always work out the way you had hoped and this was one of them for us. After four years of trying to get pregnant we were faced with a decision.

After making that initial decision, then came the task of finding the right agency. That actually also came pretty easy. We talked to several people about the pros and cons of an open adoption vs. closed adoption, overseas adoption vs. domestic adoption. In the end we have decided to do a domestic open adoption through Independent Adoption Center (IAC). Everything about this non-profit organization is exactly what we were looking for.

Now, the final task before we can start the adoption process is funding. We are starting this Etsy shop as a way to partially fund our first and, hopefully, one or two more adoptions.
