Abhilasha Jeyarajah, till recently known as Baby 81, gets a final check from the doctors before he is handed over to his parents.
Mother Jenita is free to take her boy after three weeks of legal wrangles, culminating in DNA tests, sparked by doubts over the boy's identity.
Outside the hospital, relatives gather to greet Abhilasha in the cultural tradition. Nine couples had wanted to take the boy after he was found in tsunami debris.
At four months old, Abhilasha is unlikely to remember any of the media attention.
Father Murugupillai rushes to the nearest coconut vendor to organise an offering to the gods who he says reunited the family.
The Jeyarajahs take photographers back to the place where their nightmare began in the eastern town of Kalmunai.
