My Son was abducted from the UK at 4 months old and taken to live in Tallinn by his Estonian mother. I did not see or hear any news about my child for 16 month until I took my ex partner to court in Estonia to be granted access to him.
Similar to this woman in the report, it seemed at the time that my ex partner had no idea that she was committing child abduction or that this was a form of child abuse. I did not contest for custody as I do not believe that a child should be taken away from either parent and two wrongs do not make a right.
I think that young Estonian women should be educated that Fathers have equal rights and responsibilities to be parents to their children and that Mothers are not granted sole authority over the children, simply because they are the Mother. I feel sorry for the woman in this report and the child because the courts are going to cause further emotional trauma to them both, however the Mother should have considered that what she was doing was both illegal and morally reprehensible before committing child abduction.
I now travel to Tallinn twice a month in order to help raise my son and I pay child maintenance, this is very expensive and for the short time I spend with my child I do not feel that I am truly his Father.
On a positive note I now have many Estonian friends, I enjoy spending time in Tallinn and I have been exploring local business and creative ventures. Perhaps this Italian father could have been convinced that having family in Tallinn would be a good thing for him too if the Mother and her legal representatives had taken the time and care to communicate fairly and reasonably with him.
