Your question really requires an immigration attorney with knowledge of international treaties and child custody matters. This is a very complex matter that is not something that can be done without the help of an attorney with knowledge in these matters.
I am sorry to ready about your grandchild's situation. More information is necessary to be able to evaluate this case. First of all, how old is your grand child? Are his parents US citizens? Are you a US citizen? It would be necessary to schedule a consultation to get these questions answered and evaluate the case to try to develop a strategy to bring your grand child legally to the United States.
