The Bevins started the process of trying to adopt a young girl from Kentucky's child-welfare system. They had their fingerprints taken, three times and opened their home to an inspection. The state ultimately rejected their application because, the Bevins said, they had five children and officials worried the girl wouldn't get enough attention. (Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin via AP)
