Magi, 15, couldn't help but notice a lot of stray dogs running around the city. She spent her money on dog food and brought several puppies home, much to her parents' dismay. They finally let her keep a curly haired dog she named Lilo.
"It's just comforting to have an animal to help me out. She's a real blessing for me," she said.
Magi also discovered a talent for distance running. She belongs to a local track club and has won several races. "And I want to go to the Olympics," she said.
But which country would she represent? That's hard, she said, noting she was born in Argentina, grew up in the U.S., and Chile "saved us when we were sad."
The Correas said they don't know what's still in store for them.
"I think everything has a purpose in life," Correa said. "It's like a movie. We're in the middle of the movie. We don't know the end."
