This site is dedicated to the reunification of Melissa Marie Bustamante with her paternal family.  This is an international parental kidnapping case.  


Melissa you are the piece of my heart that was taken from me so long ago.  You were only two.  This picture was taken two weeks prior to your departure with all of your paternal cousins.  My life without you has not been complete.  I can only hope that you have felt the warmth and love my soul sends to you every day.  I, and your complete paternal family, miss you and wish that you could be part of our lives. Ultimately, the only thing that matters to me will be how you will judge me and my actions.  Now that you are a teenager, hopefully you’ll want to meet me.

My goal is simple; all I want is for us to get reacquainted with each other.  Maybe after a while you might want to see me again.  Melissa, there was a time when 


 your kisses came without even asking!!! This picture was taken December 25th, 1997, at Santa’s Enchanted Forest – Miami, Florida.  It appears that the excitement of all the lights caused you to start kissing me all over my face.  Your grandmother had enough time to take out a camera and take this picture while you continued to kiss me.  That is a moment that I think about every day. 

Melissa, words can not describe how much I want to be with you.  I think of you all the time.

you have a God given right to know your father and your paternal family. I am not asking you to choose between families, I am asking you to meet your complete family.  By doing so, you’ll allow my broken heart to heal.  I will always be waiting for you no matter how long it takes.

This picture is of your step mother Nancy and me your father.
