A woman who has "fallen out of love" taking the son to be raised by her lover in another country? Ho hum. What else is new? The right of women to steal children from their fathers is HARDLY something new under the sun! Why do you think men invented marriage? So that they could keep their natural enemy close, and their children even closer! :)

David, as a Brazilian listening to you on wnyc's webstream I wish to present you my full sympathy and the hope that once your son is of legal age this whole thing can be forgotten and you can enjoy the rest of your lives in peace.

David, I feel for you and your son, and was glad to hear that you have your son, love, and relative stability in your life again.

Have you theorized about what motive this Brazilian man had in abducting your son?
