“… So, even though we were presented with a totally non-authentic fortune cookie at our newfound authentic Chinese restaurant, we still opened our cookies to read Confuciusâ€™ words of wisdom. Mine was something vapid and nondescript, but Kevinâ€™s? Wow.
Kevinâ€™s fortune read â€œRemember three months from this date. Good things are in store for youâ€. You see, even though we were still locked tight within the dreaded endless Two Week Cycle, we knew that the math lined up. Three months from that particular date contained 6 two week cycles; the last 6, as a matter of fact. The very last day of the very last cycle falls on October 30th. Thatâ€™s the day we bring Jack home for good. Itâ€™s a Saturday, and it happens to be exactly three months to the day after we read that fortune.
That tiny slip of paper is now tucked safely into Jackâ€™s baby book. One day weâ€™ll tell him the story of how his Mommy and Daddy were on a quest for real Chinese food, and we found, along with an appreciation for a good dumpling, that faith can, in fact, be found in a fortune cookie.”
