For the past year or so Zack has found himself in an unusual situation at church. In the past he's always been "the youngest Fortunato." But due to circumstances that I won't go into here, he now has a group of friends that don't know his older brothers. As far as they're concerned, he's an only child.
I asked him once what he thought about that: Is it good or bad? He said a little of both. The negative side is that when he talks about his brothers and stuff they've done together, there's no frame of reference since they don't know his brothers. But on the other hand, he's kind of enjoying being known as his own person and making his way on his own.
