One month ago, I gave birth to our perfect baby boy. While I was pregnant, I discovered this board (thanks to all of your signatures!). At first, I thought you all were a bit crazy, but the more I read, the more I saw what you saw. It didn't take long for me to realize that no son of mine would ever be circ'ed. I approached dh, and after showing him some of the links that you all regularly post, he was convinced that circing for any reason was wrong.
I am a bit sad to say that if my dd had been a boy, she almost certainly would have been circ'ed. But, my boy is intact and will remain that way, unless he makes a choice to circ himself at some point later in life.
This weekend we had a beautiful baby naming ceremony for him, and all of our friends and family made comments that it was touching, and although not what they were accustomed to, it gave them things to think about. I had been quite nervous about how people would react, and have been pleasantly surprised at how supportive most are being!
Anyway, I read this board enough to know how exhausting it can be when you try to convince people who won't listen to you about the tragedy of infant circumcision. I thought it might make you all feel better to know that you can credit yourselves with saving my son
