Under the United Nations Hague Convention, The Convention provides a legal mechanism to seek return of abducted and kidnapped children and or to exercise parental visitation rights.
Thailand, is not a signee to this internationally recognized agreement; childrens are abused and ignored as are the child's human rights.
Although the United States is obligated to actively protect all childrens rights and their citizen rights that enter into their sphere of influence, the US Embassy Bangkok will not interfer, assist, nor sanction a country ie. Thailand that is not concerned with human or childrens' rights issues, nor with the parental rights of foreigners. Thai Police and Thai Courts have a policy of 'silence' about such issues and a bias of aiding only the thai-side, 'thai helping thai'.
