After a bruising two-year custody battle that gained national attention, 4-year-old Veronica is back on James Island with her adoptive parents, who are asking for privacy as they work on building a new life together.
“We’re just trying to get back to normal – or at least a new normal,” Melanie Capobianco said Wednesday when a Post and Courier reporter stopped by her home.
Television crews had camped outside Matt and Melanie Capobianco’s home in the Ocean Friends Neighborhood after the couple got Veronica back from her biological father in Oklahoma on Sept. 23. But after several days passed with no sign of the newly reunited family, the media packed up and left.
The couple’s spokeswoman and attorneys wouldn’t say where they had gone after leaving Oklahoma, as rumors swirled that they had decamped to Texas or Disneyland to bond and wait for the frenzy surrounding the case to die down.
