Need links about care of foresin / intact penis

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

that are not pro-circ or anti-circ, if pssible.  Any suggestions?

(Asking because I'm in the process of adopting a boy from Eastern Europe.  There's a FB group for those of us adopting from this specific country, and a discussion going on there that it is best to circ as soon as the boys come home to avoid future problems. Started by a mom who adopted a 2 yr old who is now 8, from China, and says he's "always" had problems w/ it, but the problems are caused because "he was always difficult to "pull back", and (the parents) did it when he was little, and now that he takes care of cleaning himself he doesn't always do it" so now has issues w/ the foreskin becoming attached again.  

[My bio son is 5, not circed and no issues; never retracted except when he does it himself playing starting in toddlerhood...so I understand the care. But want to share links that don't seem biased for anyone who hasn't researched yet.....since anyone adopting a boy over there, is almost certainly going to have an intact boy, and hopefully we can keep a few more of them that way by countering misinformation.]

 

TIA~

I cannot imagine anything more disgusting then adapting a child and circumcising him the next day.  Why anyone thinks that taking a child into your new home and before he speaks a word of English, cutting a piece of his penis of is moral in anyway is beyond me.  How these boys get past it is a mystery for sure.  

 

Anyway, here a decent link I found on a simple google search from a health website

http://www.kidshealth.org.nz/index.php/ps_pagename/contentpage/pi_id/266

It seems to cover all the basic points and since it comes from a regular health website, it should be taken more seriously.  

 

Here is an AAP statement which should sound credible to the women you are posting these resources to.

I hope these links help.
