May they continue to get stronger and stronger so that they can travel home to Costa Rica soon.

No, they plan to stay right here. See the girls were considered one person when they arrived, but now that they're split, one of the girls is a U.S. Citizen and will become the anchor baby for the entire family! What a happy ending!

Where do you get your information? The media reports I have heard mention that they are part of a large group of siblings and are looking forward to returning home with their mother to the rest of the family in Costa Rica.
