Bring Us Home

After nearly three years in Japan, we have decided to return home. There are several factors leading to this decision. The most prominent of those being that I would personally like to get a better handle/diagnosis on my depression. We have also recently found out that we are pregnant again. Baby Griffin #2 on the way. We just feel like for this second one, it would be nice to have a support system of family and friends to help. 

How your contribution will help us. 

1) Michelle and Olivia's plane ticket is already bought. However, we still need to purchase mine. These tickets can range anywhere from $700 to $1500/

2) We will have about 10 boxes of our belongings that we will need to ship back to the states. We will try to take back as much as we can by suitcases. 

3) Overall just getting settled back into America. 

We know that you work hard for your money. We have no expectations. However, if you want to be a part of bringing this journey to a close, even $5 makes a difference and is one step closer to bringing us home. We would really appreciate ya'lls support and look forward to seeing each of you soon.
