This happens far too often in US, I hope you are equally vehement in your attacks on those American mothers and fathers.

I know you are not Buddhist, or at least I hope not. Good people do good things. Bad people do bad things. Only through religion do good people justify themselves doing bad things. Twice in your post you imply a God had something to do with this. Whatever God you subscribe to must be a malicious ...(i´ll allow you to decide the appropriate adjective)

"...someone else´s son" - he was her child, not a bargaining chip, custody became a real issue after her death in childbirth. Contact with his father is a different issue and I am certain that if the father really wanted contact with his son prior to her death there was very little could have been done to stop that. "Not allowed" is far too weak an excuse when you consider the lengths he was prepared to go to for custody after the death of his sons mother.

I still don´t get how support for a boy can result in such abuse of his dead mother and thankfully alive grandmother. These people are his family, he has a sister. Does this do nothing to temper the hatred that you carry in your heart?

<quoted text> It is difficult for YOU to use reply! Yes, I am VERY serious about having NO RESPECT AT ALL for a woman who KIDNAPPED her four year old and took him to another country and did NOT allow his father to see him!!!! After she died, the father was still not allowed to see him. How did she show love for her son? By not letting him see his father? By getting married to another man while still being legally married in the U.S.? By getting pregnant by another man? It is too bad she died ..... karma is a B****! I guess it was not meant for her to live in another country with someone else's son without the father's permission.
Since you asked nicely, I´ll use the reply button.
