There has been a lot of talk recently about the thousands of unaccompanied minors crossing into the United States. 

The magnitude of the influx of these migrants makes it easy to forget that with each individual child comes a unique story of why they left and what happens when they try to make it to America.

Reporter Kate Linthicum spent time with one family who traveled from Honduras to the United States and she recently told their compelling story in the LA Times.

The two sisters in the story, Katheryn, 13, and Dayana, 9, are among more than 60,000 unaccompanied children, mostly from Central America, who have been apprehended at the border over the last 10 months, she reports.
