Jack turned 8 months old today. This is a lucky day for him. In Asian cultures the number eight is considered lucky. This is our lucky month! (We hope!) He is also considered lucky because he was born 8 lbs 8 oz. Double eights are considered twice as lucky!
Many have said that Jack is a "lucky boy" because he is going to be a member of our family. We don't see him to be lucky in that sense. Why? Because if Jack was not matched with us there would have been another family waiting further down the list that would be matched with him. He would have ended up with a family either way. He is not lucky in the sense that we have rescued him or anything. That isn't ture. Is Jack lucky to be a part of our family??? No. We are the lucky ones to have Jack.
