Supreme Court agrees to hear the case of Baby Veronica

Posted: Updated:

In January 2013, one year after Veronica was taken to Oklahoma with her biological father, the U.S. supreme court agrees to hear the case involving the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA).

The case, Adoptive Couple V. Baby Girl will be heard at 10 a.m. April 16, 2013.

In this video Matt and Melanie Capobianco (adoptive couple) said their priority is bringing Veronica back to Charleston to live with them but hope they can help other families fighting ICWA in order to gain custody of their children.
