    This is a manipulated narrative. If you do google searches on “Stefanie Zachariadis Gardner” and the children you will find public copies of the legal documents that the father signed giving his consent for the children to travel to Germany and reside there normally. If your partner wanted to travel with your child and you do not speak your partner’s language are you really going to sign some documents in a foreign language when you do not know what exactly you are signing?
    Gregory Gardner knew the situation and agreed to everything. He agreed when his ex wife offered to return to the USA so he could see the children every year and when offered to visit the children in Munich. I could give you the exact address in Germany but the father already knows the address because he sent the American Embassy to visit the children and obtain pictures. The children were with their mother and maternal grandmother (who was NOT dying) and still Gregory Gardner never attempted to go to Germany to visit his children in 15 years. Parents who want to see their half German children in Germany DO see the children IF they WANT to see the children and use proper channels. The father absolutely deserves the acquaintance of his children, but it is very xenophobic to complain and blame a country’s legal system for not seeing one’s children. Over the years many German born and American born children have been sent home to the USA by German courts if they are not lawfully under German jurisdiction and it is in the best interests of the child, so why do Americans think Alec and Dominic wouldn’t have been returned to the USA if their father truly objected to the relocation and it was in the children’s best interest to live with their father?

If your partner wanted to travel with your child and you do not speak your partner’s language are you really going to sign some documents in a foreign language when you do not know what exactly you are signing? The father signed the “Einwilligungserklärung” which is a legal document in Germany and admitted in front of a judge that he signed it.
