MAYWOOD, Ill. -- It's a happy holiday homecoming for a family from suburban Berkeley.

Triplets who were born six weeks premature and underweight, were released from the hospital today.

They left Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood Thursday morning, just in time to celebrate their first Christmas.

Finn, Kyle and Ava Santiago were born Dec. 6. They have been in the neonatal ICU ever since.

Doctors say unlike many triplets who suffer lifelong physical and mental disabilities, the Santiago babies are completely healthy.

Their parents say they couldn't be more grateful.
