I am very happy and content with myself that I left my son intact. I am also happy about the thread - it's great to read such positive stories in one place.
I faced huge obstacles from dh, family, friends, etc.,. when I decided to leave my Jewish son intact. I truly had an entire community against me, and had never felt so much pressure, hatred, harassment, etc.,.
Luckily I was able to convince my husband that it's truly not the right thing to do, religion or no religion. My sister was the only person on my side that was related to me, I was lucky to have many friends who agreed with my decision.
My son had complications as birth, and the circumcision wouldn't have been able to take place on the 8th day. When everyone finally realized I wasn't postponing, I was saying no (which they were choosing to misunderstand, as I had said from the beginning it wasn't going to happen) they let it go. I still receive hate mail, guilt trips, and am the target of many nasty opinions.
And it all reinforces my belief that I hit a sore spot somewhere, and people can't be too secure in what they are doing if they let my choice get to them so deeply and profoundly. After researching and joining some online groups, I believe there may be a chance that in the future, even Jews won't see circumcision as automatic. And I'm happy to be someone who has started a new belief (even if I'm seen as evil for doing it) in my community.
But every day I see my son or change his diaper and see his intact self, I congratulate myself, and realize it was worth it. He can always choose to circ. himself later if he's going to be as miserable as everyone has told me he will. I don't believe it will happen, but it will be his choice. It was never my choice to make.
