  • It's bullshit. The boy's mother kidnapped him, and did her best to erase this father from his son's life. He is being held by his STEPfather- a man that here in the US would be nothing more than a legal stranger. It's too bad the mother has passed on, because seeing her eventually brought back in handcuffs to face a trial for what she has done would be most appropriate.

    I am so saddened for this father. I hope, once he has his son back, he sues the shit out of the step father, and the Brazilian govt. And speaks out against them as often as possible.

    The fact that this has gone on long after mom is in the grave is disgusting.

  • Horrible story. What;''s best for the boy? What's best for his dad? Are they the same goal? Let's hope and pray there's a + outcome for ALL concerned.

  • I'm w/LiliM!!! It is outrageous! Shame on Brazil & the US for not getting this son back to his father shortly after the death of his kidknapping wife! Bet me her parents did have something to do with it. It also should be something to note when our kids get married...does their to be spouse have family in another country and could they possibly have this in their future if so?

  • The Brazilian government is not "in love" with the U.S. government. Over the past few months, the relationship has broken down. The B. gov does not want the U.S. gov coming into their country, nor do they want the U.S. gov telling them what to do. Therefore, they resent the pressure from the U.S. gov to hand the boy over to this man. It started with Clinton coming down and Obama voicing his opinion. The Brazilian judge that ruled against this case is "a little off." Good luck to this man and his desire to get his son back.
