February 9, A day to remember!

David Goldman saw his son Sean today for the first time in four and a half years. The visitation was a success. Out of respect for the Brazilian courts who have asked that details remain private, we will defer to the media accounts of the visitation.

Below is a list of media outlets we expect to report on the story tonight and tomorrow and we will have links to the written reports and video as soon as they are available. We also expect the news to be in several Brazilian media outlets tomorrow which is obviously great news. Perhaps the “wall of secrecy” in Brazil is finally crumbling, at least we hope so.

And PLEASE, continue to contact your Congressmen (calls are better than emails) to ask for their support of House Resolution 125. You must say House Resolution 125 by Congressman Chris Smith, NOT HR 125, that is a different item. WE STILL HAVE A LOT OF CALLS TO MAKE. You should also mention to these Congressmen that the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) has publicly endorsed this resolution.

BREAKING NEWS: A huge Win, a panel of eight judges has just ruled unanimously that the case will be heard in the Federal court in Brazil, NOT in the Rio state court.

EDIT by Bob D’Amico: Read the Dateline NBC producer, Benita Alexander-Noel “Inside Dateline” Blog “1,698 days later, father finally gets to hug son.” I’m not ashamed to admit that I was choked up.
