    NO there is still time for another Judge to rule otherwise. As has happened in the past.

    That's what my husband just said, Dammit! I was hoping this would be a happy Christmas story.

    Chief justice Mendes is the supreme authority of the Brazilian judiciary system. He can and will overturn any contrary decision.

    Happy Christmas story or not the game is over for the "child abductors".

    I feel sorry for the brazilian family. Granny sees the boy as part of the daughter she lost. But Sean, just like Elian Gonzalez, belong with their biological parents.

    Out of spite, the Brazilian family will probably hold him till after the holidays. They know they have no legal standing and will ultimately lose. What is cruel is that they play each card to string this thing out.

    Goldman sent his son a Christmas letter and the familiy marked it "return to sender"

    In a show of class, David Goldman has indicated he would not do to them what they have done to him and will allow visitation

    If he allows visitation, I would hope his attorneys tell him to never, ever let these vile people take the boy out of the country.

    So right. Goldman is a class act unlike the Brazilians. Hope it all works out for he and his son.

    Brazilian Family Concedes Defeat: Sean Goldman Home by Christmas?

    The long-running battle for custody of 9-year old Sean Goldman neared its conclusion Wednesday when lawyers for the boy's Brazilian stepfamily said they were giving up the fight and handing him back to his American dad.

    "There comes a time when you have to say the war is over," Sergio Tostes, lawyer for Sean's stepfather Joao Paulo Lins e Silva, told TIME. "We could appeal but that would only prolong the suffering. We don't want to prolong this any more."

    The president of Brazil's Supreme Court ruled Tuesday night that Sean must be returned to his American father immediately.

    I really do not care.
    If I cared about such stuff I would read People magazine.

    If he allows visitation, I would hope that he insist that it is SUPERVISED visitation ONLY.

    No way would I want to take a chance of these people running off with the boy again.

    I do feel sorry for Granny. She's lost her daughter, and now her daughter's son. But the child belongs with his father--unless Dad can be proven unfit (and it is quite obvious that he is a very fit parent).

    Hopefully Dad gets the best Christmas ever this year~~
