The seven siblings are huge fans of their hometown team, the Houston Rockets. When the team heard the kids were coming on the show, they sent along a special gift—each child received a goodie bag filled with Houston Rockets gear! And, the team has arranged for a limo to pick them up and take them to the team's pre-season opener, where they'll be able to watch the game in one of the luxury suites and meet the team!

"We're very happy to have you safely back here in Houston," says Patrick Ewing in a special message. "Oprah, make sure you give them all a big hug from me. I have big arms. And, kids, I'm looking forward to meeting you after the game."

Also, since the children missed so much school while they were in Nigeria, the Sylvan Learning Center is providing each child with a year of free tutoring!
