The simplest, in some ways, is to establish residency in the country that has taken custody of the children. If this is not practicable, then you can petition for guardianship of the children. You will have to appoint a resident agent for service. You might also try to find a family friend or other relative that already lives in the state (and preferably County) where the children are. You might find that you can help the parents change the situation that caused the children to be twentieth l taken away.

Good luck
