Legal Question in Family Law in Virginia

My daughter has dual citizenship, German and American, my child's mother is a German citizen, and I am and American citizen. I have never given up any parental rights, but because my child is in Germany, the mother has sole custody. My daughter and her mother will be in America in December. Once they get here can I prevent my daughter's mother from taking her back to Germany?
