I went through so much "controversy" and "opposition" from my family, mainly my parents, for keeping our first son intact. We found out yesterday that he has a little brother on the way, and we couldn't be happier! He will be kept intact as well, and we couldn't be happier for that as well! I'm so thankful to this forum for educating and encouraging us. Two boys saved from unnecessary cosmetic surgery! :D

My family doesn't even know that my son is intact. They never asked and I never told them. I don't want to deal with the same kind of thing that you dealt with.

 

Congratulations on another little boy!

It was harder when we lived with my parents and they're super pro-circ... It hasn't even come up with this one so far...

 

Thanks!

You know something though, as time goes on and they see that all the myths are false some will learn from your example. :)
