Representatives for Dusten Brown and the Capobiancos are discussing the custody dispute over Baby Veronica.

The adoptive family members of Baby Veronica are hoping now that they are on Oklahoma soil they can see their daughter.

"We just feel like the situation has gotten to a point that everybody involved needs some peace back in their life," said Jessica Munday, a spokesperson for the Capobianco family.

The couple walked on stage Wednesday, worn out from months of fighting to get custody of Baby Veronica.

"We need these families to come together and to at least start the conversation to amend the hurt and pain and suffering that both sides have dealt with so Veronica can have the best possible life moving forward," said Munday.

She said attorneys on both sides are working to get both families to come together to work out a solution for everyone, even Veronica’s biological mother.

"Her voice gets lost in all this, she's still very much a part of this environment," Munday told FOX23's Dontaye Carter.
"She wants to see her too and she wants to be able to have an ongoing relationship with her and we have to move past this legal circus."

Only FOX23 cameras were rolling as Dusten Brown, Veronica’s biological father, turned himself into authorities Monday in Sequoyah County.

He didn't say much then, but Wednesday released this statement saying:

"The South Carolina court's determination of this issue was based upon facts as they existed almost two years ago. We are fully in favor of a present-day determination of Veronica’s best interest to be made by a court in the state where Veronica has lived for the past 19 months."
