David Goldman Went to the Ends of Earth, Spent Every Penny. But Got His Son Back

Sean leaves Brazil
Finally the wheels are up and Sean Goldman is home. In case you’re living under a rock, here’s how everything went down this morning:

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Here are the highlights:

* The Brazilian family proved for the last time that the only interests they have in mind are their own, and don’t give a damn about Sean’s well-being, which could very well cost them any visitation rights they eventually ask for in New Jersey.

The US consulate offered a quiet hand over and the Brazilian family purposely flaunted Sean in front of the media. A representative from the consulate says the US government is very angry with the Brazilian family, as are David and his lawyers.

* The Brazilian family lawyer, Sergio Tostes, decided to put the last nail in the coffin that is his international career and screamed at Congressman Chris Smith, “You are a motherfucker!”

* David and Sean took a charter flight with NBC (NOT the US government, as Globo keeps inaccurately reporting) back to the U.S.

* According to the Brazilian media, the grandmother asked to get on the plane with Sean, but was resoundingly denied.

* The US Congress passed the trade bill yesterday after the Supreme Court decision in Brazil, and Brazil will receive the $2.75 billion in trade preferences this year.

* The media is reporting that David is taking Sean to Disney World for Christmas, where they will spend time bonding before heading to New Jersey.

And here is the most beautiful take off in history:

Finally, finally, we have justice.

I’m going to do one final post sometime in the next few days just about how it has affected me and some general observations, since this case has changed my life in ways I never imagined.

But to wrap things up:

The Brazilian family has not only managed to bring themselves a lifetime of punishment for committing crimes and violating human rights, but they managed to bring infinite amounts of shame on their entire country. They exposed the judicial system in all its flawed glory, its slowness and at times, its corruption.

They exposed Brazil for what it really is, a modern country that still clings to its feudal past, where a single family can manipulate an entire system. They almost even punished the whole country with economic repercussions, though luckily, the Brazilian government managed to intervene.

As we know, these people will never go to jail, and they will never pay for what they did (it’s possible they will have to pay David’s legal fees, though that could take a lifetime to accomplish). But they will spend the rest of their lives in their own personal hell, with their reputation in the toilet and their beloved grandchild/nephew/stepson far, far away. Karma has finally come full circle.

David, meanwhile, has been rewarded for the greatest amount of patience and love I have ever witnessed in a human being. To be honest, I’m not sure I have ever experienced the kind of love David has for Sean, the one no love song or cheesy saying could possible describe.

He literally went to the ends of the earth, spent every penny, and put every ounce of his being into getting his son back. He devoted himself to this single mission, one that should never have been this long or difficult.

But he prevailed, and his determination really showed. Things will certainly be difficult at the beginning, without question. But if there ever was a love that could heal wounds, David’s absolute devotion to his son can, and will.

Rachel Glickhouse, born in 1984, spent two years living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil after graduating from college in 2007. She now lives in New York with her Brazilian husband. She has also lived in Spain, the Dominican Republic, and Argentina and has traveled through Latin America. You can find more about her in her blog: http://riogringa.typepad.com.

    Its amazing
    How those who believe a kidnapped child should remain with his kidnappers is ludicrous. I hope you never have to go through this… ever. Cause if you do, guess who will get the last laugh?

  • Ernest Barteldes

    and no interest in writing a book here
    And no I am not competing on anything here btw. If someone writes a third-person account Rachel should do it, not me — for reasons that are too obvious to need to mention here

  • Ernest Barteldes

    Rachel is no copycat
    Just because we both wrote on the same topic it doesnt mean that she is copying anyone. She is a talented, independent writer who has researched this case far more than I have. If we both have the same reaction on the same paper is because we feel the same way about the case

  • David l.

    Wow, stick with the point
    So, am I missing something? None of you think a father should have custody of his child when the biological mother has passed away. Forget about your nation bashing, it’s a simple concept. Blood parents come before grandparents and stepfathers.

  • Mile

    Goldman will pay in the end
    Goldman true story has not been told. He has a web site asking for donations, He is writing a book, he sold his side of the story to Date Line and is going to be aired Friday night a 2 hour special, filming of Sean and their home. He has had NBC following him for a paid exclusive. All Goldman is about himself and making a buck. NO father who love his child would up root a child in the middle of a school year and from the only family he knew for 5 years during the holidays.
    He is a fraud and an abuser.
    If his wife was happy she wouldn’t leave him. There is a lot more to the story then what is being exposed. He was a male model with questionable friends and activities
    Let expose the true David Goldman.
    Let save Sean from all the trauma which his father has caused. Goldman has motives as why he wants Sean and it’s not love. the guy is a fraud.

  • Mitch

    International law has been applied and for all future cases it was the right thing to do. It should not have taken so long. We can hope that it is a lesson for all countries to enforce the law quickly and correctly. The law is there to protect children and is too important to be enforced by threats of trade agreements being halted.

    We can all be happy that the people who pour vitriol on either side of this media frenzy are not responsible for the legal decisions nor the care of the boy.

    This boy may be lucky, he has two ‘families’ who seem to care enough for him to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to have him live with them.

    If the Brazilian press is to be believed; the father is unemployed and until now has not had the means to provide the boy anything near the lifestyle he had in Brazil. That he has a debilitating condition (Guillain-BarrÀƒ©) is irrelevent as he will probably not suffer the effects of it until after the boy is 18.

    Personally I think it smells just a bit that he accepted 150k from the boys grandparents. Even if we accept that he did so to pay legal fees, it still has the appearance that he ‘sold’ custody and then reneged on the deal.

  • Johnny

    what money?
    he has no money for last time I check he don’t work, so the question from where he got the money from. it easy he got the money from nbc and dumb americans who think this is a fight between countries. you know what Brazil should do is kickout boeing of it biding for new jet fighters and see who will lose money; specially the santions Brazil will impose on u.s. products because of it cotton subsidings.

    to just let people know sean goldman belong to his father…

    [/quote]

    You’re totally right too! This is not about America or Brazil, it’s about WOMEN.

    Bruna took Sean to Brazil ok, I have a friend in NY and after his marriage came apart his ex-wife took the child to San Francisco, that’s hundreds of miles away.
    So what’s the difference ? NONE.

    In western societies, when relationships are broken, 90% of Women become child kidnappers anyway. Many of them (lawfully or unlawfully) take the children far away from their fathers, the ones who don’t, they make “You will never see your son again or I will take the child far away if you don’t comply with my demands” threats to their ex-husbands. That’s being a WOMAN.

    Look at this case: Bruna kidnapped Sean, then she died and the Grandmother kidnapped the boy and she was all over the Brazilian media to convince people she’s a good person, then we have Rachel rather than “JUST” reporting the facts as they happened for EVERYBODY here, she DIVIDED her readers into TWO CATEGORIES which are ARGUING WITH EACH OTHER after she kindly throws in some of her future predictions for the lawyer (and the others involved) PLUS her own personal not welcomed analysis of the Brazilian Republic just because of a dispute between two families who just happen to be in two different countries.

    Do you get the pattern here ? Bruna => Woman, Grandmother => Woman, Rachel => Woman..

    And The American and Brazilian media making such a big thing about this case, that’s because women like Rachel who get emotionally involved in anything easily (as she said here this case changed her life in many ways), Im 100% sure women were the ones behind those big media fuss.

    We don’t think so. She may be independent, but her talents as a writer,reporter and researcher are questionable. She might have researched far more than you did, but she is still not an authority on Brasil. If any Tabloid newspaper owned by Rupert Murdoch wants to hire her as a reporter with the intention of increasing its circulation, I would call it a bad “Managerial Decision”. 😉

  • Ric

    The Process
    Given the involvement of Obama, Clinton and Smith, and the tariff extension bill, it would appear that the USA and Brazil did indeed go into staredown mode and Brazil blinked.

    Maybe the roles and positions of nations will change as the years roll on, but for the time being it looks like whenever a country like Brazil sits down at the table with the USA to play Texas Hold’em, the USA is going to continue to have the winning hand.

    AhÀ‚´m happy that Brazilian President Chavez took charge like a real man and ordered the Chief Justice of the Brazilian Supreme Court to intervene and force all the parties to respect the Geneva Conventions. AhÀ‚´m sure that the old bag is not too happy to be ordered around by her President,but we have to remember the old bags are all the same, whether Brazilian or American.

    God Bless America and thank you to our Brazilian friends for rescuing a fine young American from their captors.

  • Jake McCrann
    So you believe that David paid for an assassin in Brazil to get Bruna out of the picture ?

    Could you enlighten us on this ?

  • Jake

    the jew murdered his wife. This shouldn’t have been about an abduction. This should have been a murder trial.

  • ……………………

    Zico plus gringo1 plus other anonymous who hate the US and Brazil
    Zico, you are a joke. You are portraying Americans as being Arrogant and self-centered human beings plus if I was your Brazilian mother I’d kill myself for failing to give you some values and respect for her nation.

    You are a shame to all of us Americans and Brazilians alike since you’re half Brazilian.

    Gringo1, you’re just an ass-hole.

    And others who hate Brazil and America. You’re all idiots like Gringo1 and Zico.

    This place is full of hatred, including some writers like this one here share hatred against each other.

  • Gringo1

    Zico and ASP
    Zico,

    [quote]Yes, the article was gay[/quote]

    Of course, most Americans are gay.

    [quote]And to the moron who called the US feudal when lecturing the writer of this story, you obviously have no clue what the word means. [/quote]

    HAHAHA, you know what being feudal means: life experience.

    ASP,

    You are a fake. You are the most critic against Brazilians than all American bloggers combined. So, stop the pretending.

    And Brazilians are now playing the “We supported David Goldman”, if it was a different outcome they’d be saying “YES, we won this one, down to America”

  • Gringo1
    You are another of the bitter ones here.

    We have 2 types of bloggers here: The ones who are serious ones like ASP (American) that you attack constantly (and honestly I don’t know why he wastes his time replying to you) and Natalya (Most likely Brazilian). Others like Gringo1 and his gamers: a few Brazilian and American kids just want to have a go at each other like this was a game and Gringo1 as the game leader.

    Rachel due to her young age perhaps read people’s comments here some Brazilian and American kids insulting each other countries then she feels the need to join the insulting party too.

    Fortunately, other reporters here are more mature than her and don’t let this infancy, which goes on here, affect their reports and judgments. Also many bloggers (Brazilians, Americans or anywhere) are serious and polite people who also don’t let this game affect their judgments.

    ASP, who is American, reading all these insults against Americans and he is not insulting Brazilian nor anyone in order to defend America. Just like some other Brazilian blogger don’t feel the need to attack people insulting Brazil.

    Gringo1 is the one using multiple IDs and insulting people like ASP and others (who are not insulting him nor anyone). He’s insulting both Brazil and America since he’s neither a Brazilian nor an American but just a game player.

    Gringo1 and the other kids are playing “Let’s insult each other”. Let them play their game since they have nothing else better to do.

  • Zico

    JackassPalooza
    Man, what a load of crap. Angry little Brazilians pissing about George Bush, us wars, etc. Typical. Yes, the article was gay, but the responses were worse. Knucklehead who said he liked Iranians better than Americans: You probably don’t know any, but why not hop on a plan and go meet some? Of course, the really happy Iranians live in the USA.

    Bomb Brazil over this? Good one Che. Not necessary with Brazil, just use money, which is the base motivation of everything down here. And to the moron who called the US feudal when lecturing the writer of this story, you obviously have no clue what the word means.

    Only you petty little Brazilian Che wannabe’s, unhappy with your life in this tropical crime spree and blaming the US as always, would defend a 5 year kidnapping by a typical gang of Brazilians with money. Wouldn’t have happed to a Brazlian kid in the US.
    Now go watch a novela, lock the doors, and turn on the alarms. Idiotas.

  • Gringo1

    David, most here are attacking the writer, and America, and anyone who is also happy that this case has finally climaxed with JUST decision because of sour grapes. It’s just that simple. These boards are frequented by people who act like kids, with few exceptions. Had the decision gone the other way you’d see a different tone, but equally childish. Just Look to the past articles when injunctions were given, or it looked as if David was losing. Pay them no attention, Rachel got it right painting Cruela da Vil and her family has barking mad, uncaring manipulative cretins.

  • Frank

    That’s right
    [quote]We understand that regardless of the nationality many [bWomen] like Bruna (and others in America, Brazil, everywhere) always think that they make themselves pregnant on their own and believe they have 100% ownership to their children so therefore they can do whatever. [/quote]

    That’s 100% right ! If you look at the statistics in America most of the kidnappings are done by women taking their children away from their fathers.

    Also, many women make threats “you will never see your child again if you don’t do this or that”.. Very common for many women to do that. Just watch Judge Judy and you get the picture.

    So it’s not a Brazilian nor an American issue this. It’s our western society where women get the feeling that they are the most important people in the lives of their children and have automatic rights to them.

  • David
    [quote]Wow, stick with the point[/quote]

    David, the point is no more! The battle is finally over, so there is no point of debating something which no long exists.

    Rachel,

    What happened to David Goldman is a woman thing that many women believe as women and mothers they always have the rights to keep their children and f-ck the fathers.

    There was no need for such a bitter article from you punishing Brazilian readers here with harsh vindictive personal words since Brazilians wanted Sean united with his real father.

    We understand that regardless of the nationality many [bWomen][/b] like Bruna (and others in America, Brazil, everywhere) always think that they make themselves pregnant on their own and believe they have 100% ownership to their children so therefore they can do whatever.

    I hope you all have a Merry Xmas. Apart from Rachel, for her, it’s Happy Halloween bitter witch.

  • asp

    what is your problem , david l ?
    because we are tired of the subject and think this article is al ittle vindictive you think people are saying he shouldnt be with his father ?

    the son is with the father, what is wrong is the people that want to keep putting down brazil . or putting down brazilian people who have nothing to do with this case…

    yeah ,i agree just two years in brazil hardly qualifies a foreiner to make jusdgements and valid observations about a country or its people

    as long as the digs keep coming, expect insults to be hurled….

    this is a small little incident, its about some individuals , richness and power, and its influence , hype, and finaly justice prevailing…

  • thanos

    During my over 15 years of visiting Brazil and 4 years of living there I’ve run into many, many so called “experts” like Ms Glickhouse who think that their short time immersion into the Brazilian culture has somehow qualified them as experts on life in Brazil. During my many years there I’ve seen and experienced 1000 times more than Ms Glickhouse and I’ve still only scratched the surface of what it means to be Brazilian. Americans; don’t let the actions and words of a few prejudice you against the majority of Brazilians who are hard working, honest, all around great people who welcome anyone into their homes with the greatest of hospitality. Brazilians; the same can be said of the many good Americans that you’ve encountered. Bush and those like him are not the norm in this country. If anyone should be writing this blog its Natalya Barbosa. Ms Glickhouse is still young so she thinks her life experiences are the end all be all. She definitely does not represent an intelligent mindset in the USA. Merry Christmas to all and let’s start the New Year off with a clean slate and a positive outlook.

  • Jake

    So in order to defeat her his plan became to spend all his money to get the son, he even killed her. And then he would make the money back by selling his story.

    Well I hope that son realises how much his father truly loves him. What a scum bag that prick is your father. He killed your mum.

  • Jake

    yeh what a selfish prick. She warned him that he would never get his son back no matter how much money her would waste on it.For this he had to kill her and lose all his money.

    Typical jew. There is more to this story people. Its not a fucking novela no matter how much you like it to be.

    Lady, you are out of control…
    “Finally, finally, WE have justice.”

    We?? Who is À¢€œweÀ¢€Â? Is this a political statement?

    I personally believe that the kid should have returned to his father after the death of his mother, next day, and I don’t think that is because his father is an American but because that is the right thing to do. That was a mistake of our judiciary system in Brazil. This turned into a political repugnant battle. The kid is possibly psychologically scared for life. Also, grandmother Bianchi acted wrongfully when returning the kid to his father exposing this poor child on the street to the wolves from the international media, probably this was suggested by her lawyer. No doubt that was bad. I don’t agree with this type of behavior.

    However, I wonder on what would be the outcome if the kid was a black kid instead of so good looking and white. What about if the situation were completely reversed, with an American mother and a Brazilian husband and the kid were born in Brazil and abducted to the US?

    It is quite visible that your writing is politically motivated, nothing else.

    Another example:

    À¢€œAnd here is the most beautiful take off in history: À¢€œ

    I thought that would be the one done by the Wright brothers (or maybe Santos-Dumont sometime latter) or maybe the Apollo in its initial trip to the moon by the American astronauts. Exaggeration, politically motivated!

    I sense an anti-Brazilian sentiment in your words and how you wrote the story, I do.

    By the way, I live in the US, father of two Americans kids and one is a Marine. I also have a grandson born in California. I have nothing against the US, I have many ties here already, but I just can’t tolerate this type of unprofessional attitude you have demonstrated in your writings here.

    You may have a valid point there, Old Chap.

  • I agree with you Natalya
    What Rachel wrote here that this case changed her life sooo much and she starts slashing out on people and their culture who have nothing to do with the case of two families.

    How can a case of two families you never met change your life so much Rachel ? You could clarify your point here.

    To me, It does sound like she’s having some personal issues with her Brazilian husband at home.

  • Natalya Barbosa

    Some of Rachel’s articles
    Make a little sense, but this one is pretty hokey.. This was never a case between the U.S. and Brazil. Every court in Brazil that ruled on this case, ruled in the favor of Sean Goldman. Every court. The corrupt Judge Mello kept allowing the appeals to be heard, and they were denied each time. Cases like this one drag on and on in the U.S. also.

    Rachel if you understood Brazil as well as you think you do, you would be an expert, but as it stands, you are just another tourist who passed through. To your young mind, two years is a long time, but it’s only a blink of an eye. Some day you will realize this.

    Merry Christmas to all, especially Sean and David Goldman

    articles like this do sound vindictive….which i think there is no need for at this point….the father has his son…. the brazilian court system prevailed ….maybe it took a long time but when the step father is extremly rich and powerful and is a high powered lawyer to boot , that is what can happen anywhere…

    You said in a previous comment that the illegal Brazilians decided to self deport.. I guess you’re confused.. don’t worry, you’re not the only American talking shit.


  • About this case, I didn’t, at any point, feel like it was a competition of (what country gets the boy). That was between the brazilian family and the american father. Not the general people. No one American or Brazilian had sleeping problems over this issue apart from the individuals involved.

    Ms Reporter wannabe sounds like it was a game of win or lose and the Brazilians lost it. Ive read other articles written by other real American reporters and they are serious and don’t mess about like Ms Joke does here. Wake up honey and smell the coffee.

    Ms Glickhouse, haven’t you ever learned in college that plagiarism is not a good thing? Your news is repeated, we have the same article here. You are just rewriting what Ernest already said here which he did in a far better way than you.

    Second, your view is a bunch of American bullshit, to entertain the American readers and ridicule Brazilians who had nothing to do with this boy. That shows what type of reporter you are: copycat and a bully.

    The only thing exposed in your article is how Americans can gain everything out of sanctions and war threats.

    To be honest, I thought our heads would be bombed at some point because of that boy just like you Americans do in other countries.

    A war infested America isn’t being feudal, no ? Yes right, get a history book and learn that feudal people like Americans were war orientated beings.

    OMG. Glickmouse strikes again? 😉 😀 😉
