Birmingham Mom Collective :: Introducing Sarah


Hey hey new friends! My name is Sarah and I am so excited to introduce myself to you today!


My husband and I moved to Birmingham, Alabama from Seattle, Washington 7 years ago (but this is home now).

I absolutely love the community vibe Alabama brings and I think it is a great place to be a mom because community is fairly easy to find if you are persistent and committed. 


I’m “Mama” & “Mommy” to Rylie, Emmaline, Paisley and Spencer (that’s four kiddos five-years-old and younger). We are also in the process of adopting so I like to say I am pregnant in my heart.

I have always wanted to be a mom, and even though there are hard days (right now it’s navigating and talking through big emotions with my girls and keeping up with my always-moving & getting into everything son),  I love the simple fun I get to have with them.  We love being outside, reading, playing games, being with friends and slow days with our crew.


I am so excited to be a contributing writer for the Birmingham Mom Collective because I believe more moms are moving to the south and are in need of a fresh community.

As for what you can expect from me, in addition to sharing some of my passions with you, I believe adoption is a topic a lot of people have questions about but it’s hard to find someone who publicly shares their journey—with all its joys, struggles and realities.

Community is a beautiful gift, and I am honored to pour into you in any way I can.

If you would like to follow me personally or keep up with our adoption journey, you can follow me on Instagram – @sarahmshaver – or join our Facebook Group.
