International Family Law, What's Abduction Got To Do With It?

There is no international family law database which tells every government, foreign and domestic, where a child belongs. There is no cloud server that every official can check which contains the critical custody information for each child.

Everything, that is, except for one thing, the children.  When the issue is the children you leave the realm of apples to apples comparisons and enter the land of apples to oranges, or more correctly, apples to antelopes or atoms or the andromeda galaxy.  When custody is at stake, how can you ever place a dollar value on it?
