David Goldman Speaks at PWYC on Impacts of Child Abduction
Goldman spent 5+ years fighting to reunite with son Sean
David Goldman, the New Jersey father who spent five-and-a-half years fighting to reunite with his son Sean, spoke to nearly 200 mental health professionals at the Port Washington Yacht Club on Friday, Nov. 4, and Saturday, Nov. 5.
At age four, young Sean was taken to Brazil by his mother Bruna, who later informed David Goldman that both she and the boy were staying in Brazil, her country of origin.
David Goldman had the support of the Hague Convention, whose multilateral treaty strives to "protect children from abduction and retention across international boundaries by providing a procedure to bring about their prompt return."
