Sara Stevenson Kelley (American; born 1950-05-14) is a former leader of The Family International and a nanny of Ricky "Davidito" Rodriguez (see The Story of Davidito). She is wife to Alfred Strickland Kelley and mother of Davida Kelley, Mary Dear, and three other children.
Pseudonyms she has used include: Prisca Kelley, Sara Davidito, Sara Stevens, Sara Stevenson and Sharon
Sara Kelley was the primary author of ‘The Story of Davidito’ book, a compilation of letters in which she recorded the early development of the cult leaders’ heir Ricky Rodriguez, a.k.a. Davidito. This book was published with the intention that it be used as a childcare manual, setting the example on how to raise a child. It was sent to communes across the cult, worldwide. In ‘The Story of Davidito’, Sara Kelley published instructions on how to look after children including the detailed, explicit sexual grooming that she and others subjected Ricky Rodriguez to from birth. This book had a direct impact on the widespread sexual abuse that followed within the cult for a number of years. Sara was also involved in the sustained physical and psychological abuse of Merry Jolene Berg, a.k.a Mene.
Sara Kelley has lived under many pseudonyms in the past decades. She was most recently exposed, on 7th April 2018, as living incognito in Esterillos Oeste, Costa Rica under the pseudonyms Sara Stevens and Sara Stevenson. At the time of exposure she was working with vulnerable women and children, in the role of National Director for charity organization ‘Seeds of Hope - Costa Rica’. Seeds of Hope denies all knowledge of Sara’s real identity and past, and we have no evidence to suggest otherwise. Sara Kelley fled Costa Rica on 8th April 2018. Local authorities have opened an investigation.
