"Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts -- off the air nearly five months after a bone-marrow transplant -- will return to the show Feb. 20, she and ABC announced Thursday.

Here's her personal note, just posted:

Hallelujah! After seeing my doctor again this week I now know when I can return to the anchor chair. Feb. 20, which will be exactly five months since my bone marrow transplant. I'm excited to rejoin my wonderful 'GMA' family. I'm also looking forward to thanking YOU . . . for your many prayers and well wishes. Your compassion has been an enormous source of comfort to me and my family. I'm heading to the beach for the next week to reflect and give thanks for my many blessings. Light Love Power Presence . . . XO
