Exclamation Help make a Christmas Miracle

As many of you know I am one of the founders of the Bring Sean Home Foundation, the five person team that rallied the media, the US State Department, the US House and Senate and even the President to join with tens of thousands of people from around the world to demand that David Goldman's son Sean be returned from Brazil.

Sean's return happened on Christmas Eve 2009 and was duly dubbed a Christmas Miracle by the news media.

Since then we have managed to bring a few more abducted children back to their homes.

Another Hague Treaty Abduction case has been won and we have an opportunity to bring home another child in time for Christmas but we are short just two thousand dollars to pay for airfares, and fees charged by the foreign government, Costa Rica.

The Costa Rican court has ruled that 2-1/2 year old Emily Koyama was illegally abducted and should be returned to her father Roy. This is the FIRST time anyone has won a Hague Treaty Abduction case in Costa Rica but it's vitally important that Emily is repatriated before there are any delaying appeals filed with the Costa Rican courts.

We're not looking for big donations just a few dollars from as many people as possible. A PayPal account has been set up in the name of Karl Hindle, to accept donations on behalf of the Emily Koyama Repatriation Fund. Here is the PayPal link, you can use any credit card and do not need to register an account with PayPal:

You can read the details of the case on the Bring Sean Home Foundation website's forums:

The forums discussion on the donations for Emily and Roy at:

We all know that times are tough, every dollar is important but trust me on this, from experience I know that nothing will give you more pleasure this Christmas than knowing that you helped bring a child home.

Red face Re: Help make a Christmas Miracle

Unfortunately the mother did a "runner" on Tuesday, the day she was supposed to turn over Emily. She and Emily are no where to be found. Interpol, the Costa Rican police and the FBI are looking for her.

She can't hide forever so we are hopeful that a 2011 Christmas Miracle will still happen.

Another case which was truly horrendous, Liam McCarty abducted to Italy has improved dramatically but Italian authorities still will not allow his father, Michael, to take him home to New York.

Watch this video......

My personal opinion is that the Italian judiciary is using Liam as a pawn in a quid quo pro. See http://www.montereyherald.com/world/...nclick_check=1
