Welcome!

With_babyDear Parents,

Welcome to my website and thank you for allowing me to help guide you through this important and critical milestone in your baby’s life. Although I have tried to cover as much information as possible regarding Circumcision, I realize that it is impossible to cover everything and I encourage you to call me with any questions or concerns you may have. Please do not hesitate to do so.

For some, the decision to circumcise or not to circumcise is simple. For others, much thought, research and contemplation go into making this important decision. It is not uncommon for me to receive calls from literally around the world asking whether or not I feel they should circumcise their child. I explain to them that this is a decision they have to make for themselves.

However, I do explain that there are three main reasons why people choose to circumcise their children: 1) Religious – Parents believe that their religion requires this of their adherents, 2) Medically – Parents, or their doctors, believe that it is healthier and in the child’s best interest to be circumcised, and 3) Social – Parents don’t want their child to look different than other male family members or friends. read more…

Thought of the Day

One who prays without feeling is like one who piles up heaps of sand, plaster, and bricks, but has no water.  How does one expect to cement them together?
