ELIAN IS BLESSED BY PRIEST AND CHEERING UNCLE AT MIAMI HOME.
Father Francisco Santana (L) blesses Cuban boy Elian Gonzalez (C) after returning to his Miami home as his great uncle Delfin Gonzalez (R) and other wellwishers cheer their victory January 10. A Miami-Dade judge ruled today the 6-year-old, who is at the heart of an international custody battle, should stay in Miami until a March 6 hearing. Judge Rosa Rodriguez also gave Elian's Miami relatives interim custody. Elian was rescued at sea November 25 after clinging to an innertube for two days. The boy's mother, stepfather and 10 others died when the boat they were in sank as they attempted to reach the United States.
