Closing Thoughts
In this series finale, the Extreme Team didn't just help build a house, they helped restore a neighborhood. Life has come back to Joplin and it will continue to come back. Every one of the 12,000 volunteers that helped with the build took a piece of yarn to string along a giant map. It started from wherever that person came from and ended in Joplin. It's a gift for the entire city.

The fact that seven houses were built in seven days proves that anything is possible when people work together. That's been a theme in just about every episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Welcome home, Joplin families and thank you, EM: HE, for nine amazing, emotional, inspiring seasons. Homes were built, love was spread and lives were changed.
