Bring Sean Home

Campaign to return kidnapped minor Sean Goldman to the United States -

I was watching Dateline last night and I saw the story of David Goldman and his fight to regain custody of his son Sean.  His wife kidnapped Sean and returned to her family in Brazil.  He has spent the last four years trying to see his son and to regain custody. Brazil and the United States recognizes the Hague Treaty which makes it illegal for parents to kidnap children across borders. Brazilian courts have treated this as a simple custody case whereby the mother retains custody after a divorce. She filed for divorce in the Brazil court system. The Brazilian courts continue to keep Sean and his father apart even though his mother has since passed away. The courts have awarded custody to Sean’s stepfather versus following the Hague Treaty and international law. I am livid that our government is not doing more to pressure the Brazilian government to return this child. Please visit David’s site for more information:

Please take the time to look at Mr. Goldman’s site :
