Robin made her way back after 5 months of been off after she had a bone marrow transplant.
Roberts’ return was billed as a very special edition of GMA, and it included a welcome back message from President Obama and wife Michelle, whom Roberts is scheduled to interview in the next few days: “Good morning America and welcome back Robin,” Obama said.
“Robin,” Michelle Obama added, “we just want you to know that the whole Obama family — we’ve been thinking about you and praying for you and rooting for you every step of the way.”
Roberts, looking fit, seemed thrilled to be back.
“I keep pinching myself and I realize this is real. This is actually happening, and I don’t have my froggy slippers on, or do I?” she joked. “Faith, family and friends have brought me to this moment and I am so full of gratitude. There are so many people I want to thank throughout the morning, my doctors and nurses and family and colleagues and people who have sat in this chair and those who have blazed the trail before me.
“As my mother said, we all have something and everyone’s story has purpose and meaning and value and I share this morning, this day of celebration with everyone.”
Well done lady! You’re an inspiration to everyone.
