Sanmerna project manager Stephen Josephs was with the family when the two arrived at the Norman Manley International Airport on Thursday.

He said Adrianna is to return to the USA for additional reconstructive surgery in June / August.

He appealed for Jamaicans at home and abroad to continue supporting the Laing family.

Meantime, the girls father has expressed appreciation to all who have been helping.
