Good friends of ours had a baby boy on Sunday, and he is intact! I visited them the other day, and my friend told me that I was a big help and influence in their decision. I am so thrilled. I never know if I'm being too pushy, but I'm constantly sending links I find here to pregnant friends. I'm so happy to actually know that I helped!

My friend told me they are already SO happy with their decision. I told her that from my experience, she will only get happier!

By extension, all of you helped this little guy too! Thanks!

Good for you! Good for them! What a happy story all the way around... I always thing that it might feel uncomfortable to speak up- but it would feel worse to think that you HADN'T.... it sounds like you must have a very kind approach.

I'm always happy to hear about a happy family with a new baby! What a treat for them to not have to endure a circumcision.

Love Sarah

YAY! I am getting ready to educate my SIL on circumcison. She is from the school of "everyone gets circ'd" hearing your story gives me more confidence to approach her!
