David Goldman: Son Sean Hasn’t Called Me ‘Dad’ Yet

Following a dramatic five-year custody battle, David Goldman reunited with his son Sean in Brazil on Christmas Eve and tells the "Today" show that he and his son will "heal."

When Sean was four, David's then-wife took their son on a two-week trip to Brazil but never returned. David's wife then divorced him and married a prominent lawyer. She passed away last year and her Brazilian husband then tried to adopt Sean, but Brazilian courts eventually ruled that Sean must be returned to Goldman, his father. Cameras captured a mob scene on Thursday, Dec. 24, as Sean, 9, was led by his stepfather to the U.S. consulate in Rio de Janeiro to be reunited with his father.

David talked to "Today" show host Meredith Vieira about the emotional reunion after his grueling fight to get Sean back, saying, "It’s a miracle. ... There [were] 364 other days that [it] could’ve been, if he ever were going to come home. But it was Christmas Eve. Somebody's up there for sure. That's amazing.”
