UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and "first to invent" in the US

Cross-reference the text about Cristiano Ronaldo and his "baby contract":

Lawyer Filipe Viana Lousa, a university lecturer, added: “The Portuguese constitution establishes that children should not be separated from their parents, and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child says the child has a right to live with either the father or mother, unless those parents have failed in their duty of care or through a court order.”

to ABC Nightly News stories on 15-16 Feb 2011 on Japanese mothers taking children back to Japan. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child doesn't change Japanese law.

As in patent law, the law of the nation governs what happens in that nation.

And, as to patent law, if the US wants to run a "first to invent" patent system because it is best for the US, then the US ought to do just that.
