N.J. dad David Goldman: Reunion with son, Sean, kidnapped to Brazil by mom, is 'Christmas miracle'

 

An emotional David Goldman said he's experiencing a true "Christmas miracle" spending the holidays with his son for the first time in five years.

 

"This is surreal," the New Jersey dad said on board a private jet late Thursday night. "Here we are, up in the heavens, it's a Christmas miracle."

 

The jet landed in Orlando, which was "exactly where David and Sean Goldman wanted to spend Christmas,"

NBC News reported.

 

The long flight from Brazil to Florida was full of emotion. Video footage from the flight (SEE THE CLIP BELOW) shows David Goldman kissing his sleeping son on the head.

 

"I hope he doesn't sleep the whole plane ride and then stay awake the whole night, because I'm exhausted," Goldman said.

 

Goldman had seen his son just twice since 2004 - when the boy's mother took him on a trip to Rio de Janeiro. Instead of returning to Tinton Falls, N.J., she divorced Goldman and married a lawyer.

 

The mother died in childbirth last year and his stepfather and grandparents took custody. Goldman stepped up efforts to get Sean after her death.

 

The Brazilian Supreme Court chief justice ruled this week that Sean had to be returned by 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

 

Hours after the handoff, father and son boarded a private jet chartered for an estimated $90,000 by NBC, which has wrapped up exclusive rights to the heart-wrenching story.

 

It's unclear how long they will be in Orlando before coming to New Jersey.
