JAMES ISLAND, SC -

Just a day after 4-year-old Veronica was transferred back to her adoptive parents, a spokesperson for the Capobiancos released a picture of the family.

The picture was taken on Monday, but the location of where that picture was taken has not been released.

The Capobiancos are on their way back to South Carolina after leaving Oklahoma Monday evening. The Charleston County Sheriffs Office is not saying when the Capobiancos will be back or if they will immediately return to their James Island home.

An attorney with the case says this is the closest to the end in the fight for baby Veronica that we've seen so far.

Charges are still pending for Dusten Brown in South Carolina, and he has a court date coming up to fight extradition to our state. However, the attorney says neither that hearing or any of the other appeals still pending would immediately stop this current transfer, although it could reverse Oklahoma's decision.  Dusten Brown issued no statement to the media.

At the adoptive couple's home on James island there has not been any sign of them returning with the child. Neighbors have symbolically left up purple ribbons, the color ribbon used in the "Save Veronica" efforts which began when she left Charleston almost two years ago.

Jessica Munday, the spokesperson for the family, released this statement from the Capobiancos Tuesday afternoon

Nearly 21 months ago, we vowed to do everything legally possible to reunite our family. While we are overjoyed to bring Veronica home, we sympathize with the Brown family during this difficult time. Despite our differences, and everything that has happened over the last several months, we all love Veronica and want what is best for her. We are grateful that the visits we've enjoyed with our daughter allowed us to reconnect as a family and ease her transition home. We are all doing well and our focus now is on healing and getting our life back to normal. While we recognize there are many who have taken a strong interest in Veronica's case, we ask for privacy during this precious time with our daughter. We are eternally grateful for the overwhelming outpouring of prayers and support for our family.
