For those that were curious how things were going and were not following the Team Griffin Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/jointeamgriffin), we are nearing completion of the rough portion of the construction of the addition. Outstanding issues left include windows and doors being installed, insulation, and siding. After those we move to the drywall, flooring, painting, and bathrooms. We are estimating being all done sometime in February or possibly into March. We are very excited and can't wait to finally have the house that all of you have given to us! =)

You bet Melissa! I had created a Facebook page to keep people updated on Griffer related items here - https://www.facebook.com/jointeamgriffin. We have been looking at buying houses but have had not a lot of luck between finding one that meets our needs, is within school districts that keep Griffin in the same program, and staying near Krissy's parents. That said we are still looking, but we have also started looking into expansion of the existing house. We are working with an architect to come up with plans and costs to see how that could work. We are pretty excited and between the two options we are pretty confident we will a concrete plan soon! =)

I spent about four hours going back through 5600 posts and donations as I missed a lot of them, especially early on as they flew by. I wanted to see every single name and message. I saw posts from all over the US, but also from many nations including England, Scotland, Ireland, Japan, Afghanistan, Peru, Australia, Canada, Norway, France, the Netherlands, and of course the Chive Nation! The variety of people was just as diverse including 'Bill F@#%ing Murray, a ninja, and Captain Morgan, lol! I also saw people who donated more than once, children who opened their piggy banks, a girl who sent in her birthday money, parents of special needs children, a disabled veteran, and those who were in tight financial situations. I saw brave men and women from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. I even saw two Mounties from our neighbors to the north. And last and certainly not least, I saw people inspired by Griffin to also donate to the Chive Charity and that was fantastic. All these touched us, made us laugh, made us cry, and gave us joy and excitement for the next grantee who's life is changed by the folks at the Chive, the Chive Charity, and the Chivers! Thank you all!!!

Wow. I just read your story and I'm completely blown away. I admire your strength and courage . My prayers go out to your family and that little precious baby boy. But I do believe that God make no mistakes and that your son is made exactly the way the lord wanted him to be. I'm on this site for help with my wedding but when I saw your page, I realized that there are more serious matters going on out here. Wish I had money to donate to you because I would happily do it. I'm happy that you guys reached your goal and even more. May God bless your path of success. :-)

For those who don't understand what TheChive is, this is a perfect example. It's not just the hilarious pictures, videos and eye candy. There are no true words to explain what a Chiver/Chivette is, but this page explains it all. I've never been prouder to call myself part of the ChiveNation.

Good job Chivers. 5.5x a goal is a good way to say 'we don't DO goals'.

Will come back when I find my bank card. I can just see that expanded house now. The little guy deserves to have "no boundries". Oh, and while you are at it, make sure that you don't forget his brother and sister.
