Melanie and Matt Capobianco stand side by side before a news conference on James Island, S.C., on Monday, Aug. 12, 2013. The couple, who are trying to adopt a Cherokee girl, on Monday called on federal law enforcement to help them bring the child to South Carolina, saying they'll take the matter into their own hands if necessary. Courts in South Carolina have finalized the couple's adoption, although the child has been in Oklahoma since 2011 being raised by her biological father because of his Cherokee heritage.
