After spending the entirety of 2022 in the Russian jail, WNBA player Brittney Griner is finally back home. 

The United States agreed to a prisoner swap deal with Russia in order to bring Griner into America 

Griner was detained at the Russian Airport in month of February when she was found to be carrying cannabis oil. 

After a couple of hours to absorb her new realities Griner's family and friends issued the following statement. 

"We would like to express our sincere thanks to President Biden and the Biden administration for all the hard efforts they put into bringing Brittney to her home." the announcement from the Biden family read 

"We would like to offer our sincere thanks to Governor Richardson as well as Mickey Bergman of the Richardson Center for their hard work as well as their constant contact with us." 

We truly appreciate the thoughtful words, thoughts, and prayers - especially Paul and the family of Whelan who has been generous in their assistance to Brittney and our entire family during what we believe to be heartbreaking times
