— -- Fifteen children from one large Ebola-hit extended family in Liberia have spent the last 33 days under quarantine at a care center.

They finally received the belated holiday gift they had anxiously awaited and went home to ring in the New Year with their loved ones.

Watch the video above as ABC News went along for the ride and the reunion.

The kids were taken away from their close-knit houses and put under observation as possible Ebola cases after their grandmother passed away from the deadly disease -- which, for eight of the children claimed their mother, as well.

They were held almost two weeks longer than the standard 21-day quarantine period, meaning they missed spending Christmas at home.
