On a cold, January night of 2012 we made our way to the DFW Airport . There was a very special little boy coming home and meeting his family for the very first time. A few months earlier we received an email stating, "Because of your images we are now adopting a little boy from Ukraine who is 5 years old.". We were shocked and elated. Tears were shed, praises sang and a beautiful friendship was formed.
This was the beginning of The Archibald Project. After we released our images of Archie's homecoming, Justin and Amanda Sadler wept through our photos, clicked on some links and saw a little boy's face a half a world away. The Lord spoke to them, "This is your son. Go get him." The next few months were filled with paperwork, prayers and determined spirits to bring their son home! A few short months after receiving Amanda's first email we were corresponding with them from Ukraine and then meeting Justin and sweet Brody at the airport for their homecoming. We cannot express the love we have for this family and can't wait to share their documentary with you soon! But until then, take a look at these images filled with smiles and laughter and most importantly, sacrificial love.
