    WHERE IS SKY METALWALA?

    MISSING SINCE 6 NOVEMBER 2011 when his mother ALLEGEDLY left him in a locked car.
    She has been uncooperative with law enforcement and has seemingly moved on with her life.

I could hear in her message to him that she was obviously exasperated with life in New Jersey and it seemed like the father wasn't hearing her. After all, she met a model in Milan and was studying fashion and ends up teaching elementary school in the NJ suburbs. But the father was mostly responsible for the boy and just to snatch him like that to Brazil and then cut him off entirely when you find a new substitute dad is just beyond cruel. I am currently happily married to my baby's father, but I cannot imagine that things would ever change that I would cut off contact between them for any reason (other than abuse). The children are the ones who suffer here.
    Glad someone agrees with me!!

    You are right on! In fact, David has audio (from recorded phone conversations) where his wife said he was a great husband and the most wonderful father she could ask for her son. However, she wanted him out of her life so that she could return home to her rich family. Afterall, she was in America and had no nannies, chauffers, etc. Not to mention, she had to work (gasp!)

    I will never understand how someone feels they have the power to steal something as precious as a child from their loved ones.

    BREAKING NEWS: A huge Win, a panel of eight judges has just ruled unanimously that the case will be heard in the Federal court in Brazil, NOT in the Rio state court.


    http://bringseanhome.org/wordpress/

    ETA: http://insidedateline.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2009/02/11/1790785.aspx

    It was day 1,694. When he boarded a plane heading for Brazil on Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2009, that’s how many days it had been since David Goldman last saw his son, Sean.

    Isn't it amazing how this guy has been fighting for this for years? Constantly being thwarted, but suddenly when the Dateline and the mainstream media picked up, then the Brazilian courts started paying attention to those snarky things called law and enforcement of those laws. Ridiculous! How the American government was up in arms about this years ago is scary! I know we have wars and all, but this really is a travesty.

    I hope he can bring Sean home to live with him and his family. What the mother did was so wrong!

    There is a man who posts on the blog (www.bringseanhome.org) who is facing the same thing. His Brazilian wife kidnapped his 2 children and went to Brazil in August 2006. Unreal!

    His post from today is below:

    #tweinsteinon 12 Feb 2009 at 6:29 pm
    1. As many of you already know, my two children have been illegally retained in Brazil since August, 2006. I had all but given up hope on the Brazilian legal system, but recently, my spirits have been renewed. I am concerned however, that the Senators who presented the resolution did not include, as Congressman Chris Smith had, a reference to the other 42 cases(potentially 60-80 children) of United States children illegally in Brazil.
      Please reference this fact whenever you contact your respective senator or congressman.
      Thank You,
      Timothy Weinstein

We're all very hopeful that this trip will mark a turning point in this case and at the very least we are praying that David will be permitted to see his son.

    It gets better, but we have to go back to last Friday night; U.S. Congressman Chris Smith of New Jersey’s 4th Congressional District saw the NBC Dateline story and contacted David for a meeting. The Congressman promised to do all he could to help. David does not live in the 4th Congressional district but Congressman Smith is well known in New Jersey as a stand up guy who will go the extra mile for people. Congressman Smith is with David in Brazil right now and will be with him every step of the way! The added benefit is that the US Embassy will be providing a diplomatic security detail.

    On Wednesday February 4th in the House of Representatives, Congressman Smith, a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, entered House resolution 125 regarding Sean’s abduction. A transcript of H. RES 125 is online at http://bringseanhome.org/hr125.html.

    IT IS VITAL that additional members of the House become co-sponsors of the resolution for it to have full impact. There is no reason why your Congressman should not sign up. Please email, write, telephone or fax your Congressman/woman and ask them to become a co-sponsor. Find their contact information at http://www.house.gov.

    --------------------------------
    Please contact your Congressman/woman and ask them to co-sponsor House Resolution 125....show your support for returning this child home to his Daddy! Prayers for David, Sean and Congressman Chris Smith of NJ's 4th Congressional District!!!

    We need to keep the pressure on. Brazil's President Lula will be in Washington DC visiting with President Obama on March 17th.

    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has publicly endorsed this resolution.

    Here is what we’ve been telling/writing House members, regarding: House Resolution 125:

It calls on the Central Authority of Brazil to immediately discharge all its duties under the Hague Convention by facilitating and supporting Federal judicial proceedings as a matter of extreme urgency to obtain the immediate return of Sean Goldman to his father, David Goldman.

    David Goldman will be a live guest on the Today Show with Meredith Vieira on Monday morning, Feb 16 at approximately 7:30am EST. We hope you will tune in for the interview. This is David’s first television appearance since returning from Brazil last week.

    http://bringseanhome.org/wordpress/

    David arrived home from Brazil last Thursday (Feb 12) and immediately hopped on an Amtrak train for the three-hour trip to Washington DC. David met with Congressman Chris Smith and other high level officials in the US government. David also had a meeting with Brazilian Ambassador Antonio Patriota. The important take-away from the meeting with the Ambassador was a reassurance that the Brazilian Government wants to do the right thing, follow their treaty obligations, and reunite Sean and David on US soil. The Ambassador pointed out that the Brazilian federal government has filed the amended Hague application for the immediate return of Sean to David in the US and cited this as evidence of the Brazilian Government’s position in this case.

    (The above is a snippet from the blog...more info at the link above...this blog was posted 15 Feb 2009.)

    Also, there is also a demonstration being planned for Washington DC on Tuesday March 17 at Lafayette Park, across from the White House, to coincide with President Lula’s meeting with President Obama. It is fully expected that the topic of the Sean Goldman abduction case to be on the agenda for that meeting. For more information on the rally and to RSVP, please visit the Event on the HELP BRING SEAN GOLDMAN HOME Facebook Group at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=49656442761.


    Again, please contact your Congressman/woman and ask that he/she Co-Sponsor House Resolution 125 introduced by Congressman Chris Smith of New Jersey. It calls on the Central Authority of Brazil to immediately discharge all its duties under the Hague Convention by facilitating and supporting Federal judicial proceedings as a matter of extreme urgency to obtain the immediate return of Sean Goldman to his father, David Goldman.

    Not sure if it's on here. He got to see his son. I didn't realize his wife died? OH how horrible for that child. I hope it gets resolved soon and he can bring him back home. What a horrible tragedy.

    Thanks Patty! He got to see his son last Monday and Tuesday. He explained the visitation on the Today Show this week. He said Monday's visit was great - the psychologist left them alone to bond but she supervised from a distance (in the morning). In the afternoon, they changed psychologist's - this time a man - and he actually jumped in the pool when he got in with Sean. The Tuesday visit didn't go quite as well because David said it appeared that Sean was kept up late that night and was a bit more reserved (did the family say things to the child? possibly). He said that the psychologist on the 2nd day was inches away from them. He said there was no privacy and that it just didn't go as well on that day.

    Yes, Bruna, Sean's mom died in August 2008, only 8 hours after giving birth to her daughter who she had with Joao Paulo Lins e Silva (the guy who is fighting David for Sean). JPLeS is also a family attorney in Brazil who has helped others regain custody of their child based on the Hague Treaty. Ex: JPLeS assisted a Canadian man regain custody of his daughter after she was kidnapped by her Brazilian mother. The mother claimed she took the child because the father was an alcoholic and an abuser (supposedly proven in court). The child was returned to her father in Canada. Ironic, isn't it?

    Prayers for David and Sean. I can't imagine the pain that they are both enduring.

    Thank you for the synopsis Bree. With all that goes on in the world, this was yet another new one for me. It's just astounding to me that he does not have that child back from the moment his ex-wife died.

    Legally, he should have had the child back within 6 weeks of him being abducted (according to the Hague), but they failed to comply.

    Now that the mother is deceased, I'm baffled as to why he is still going through this mess. Lord only knows what the child has been told. He needs his Daddy though. He asked his Dad last week why he had never come to see him. His Dad said that it was hard not to tell him the entire truth, but he told him that the courts was the problem (paraphrasing).
