As the Family Abduction community looked on and many left-behind victim parents were no doubt thinking, when will it by my turn — David Goldman was finally reunified with his son Sean Goldman at the U.S. Embassy in Brazil. Despite efforts by the U.S. Embassy to make this the reunification a private a discreet event, the Brazilian families and their attorney Sergio Tostes opted to bring the boy the U.S. Embassy with the swarms of media in front.
Clearly the right thing to do would have been to make this reunification as private as possible, and both step father and family law lawyer Joao Paulo Lins e Silva and his attorney Sergio Tostes should have known better — that said, their true motives using this child as a pawn for their personal notoriety may have been further outed today by their actions. There is absolutely no justification for their actions. If they truly cared about 9 year old Sean, they would tried to make the reunification as easy as posssible. Remember Elian Gonzalez and his Cuban father, they were reunified on a military base in the United States without the media.
Nevertheless, David Goldman will fly home with Sean today for that, we will take this time to celebrate this event with him and his son. Representative Chris Smith and Senator Lautenberg of New Jersey should be thanked along with the many other people that helped David Goldman. What a great Christmas this will be for David Goldman with his son Sean. Being reunified with the kidnapped child for Christmas is the dream of every single left-behind victim parent, for David Goldman that dream is most likely become the single greatest moment in his life — them moment he finally hugged his son and became the rightful custodial parent.
