As I understand it, Sean Goldman is a 9-year old boy whose mother took him to Brazil 5 years ago on the pretext of a vacation. While there, she divorced Sean’s father (David Goldman) and married another man. David continues to live with this other man, despite his mother’s death a year ago, and David’s so-far futile efforts to get his son back from a foreign country.
I’d like to hear the other side of the story. The way the American media are presenting it, it is quite obvious that this other man and the Brazilian gov’t are evil kidnappers. There’s gotta be more to the story, but I find nothing in Wikipedia nor in the Straight Dope. Any suggestions where I should look?
