I know this has been and continues to be painful to go through... Please do not get upset, I mean NO disrespect but I could not help thinking how completely (er, is there a better word than brainwashed? Please substitute it in your own head) parents are about this subject! Reading through what happened with your second son, can you believe you went through with your third son's circ? I mean, it was horrible for ds2, and for you, and dh- but the 'horror stories' about leaving a child *intact* resonated with you so much more that you still felt it had to be done to your third son! Family, society and the medical field had pulled the wool over your eyes so successfully that you did not see you had your very own horror story from *circumcision* on your hands. Wow. Again, I am not trying to be offend you, I am just so shocked and dismayed at how deeply the bias against intactness can run. I am so glad you have overcome that! You rule!
Many kudos to Yoshua on helping you so much! I am just chuckling to myself about your comments on his sensitivity- I have seen another side of him run posters off more than once. Good job, kinder, gentler Yoshua.

Sending you lots of hugs.
