At the ripe old age of three-and-a-half, Baby Veronica will now make her third transition to a new home. At birth, her biological mother placed her for adoption with adoptive parents, Matt and Melanie Capobianco, who live in South Carolina. When Baby Veronica was twenty-seven months, however, a court ordered that she be taken from the Capobiancos and given to her biological father, whose rights, the court said, had not been adequately protected in the adoption process. And now, almost two years later, she will be returned to the Capobiancos, who took their fight for her all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
