Welcome and congrats on your new kitten!
Kittens really should stay with their mother and littermates for 12 weeks, not 8. The first 6-8 weeks of their life is spent on growth related to survival...eyes and ears opening, getting teeth, learning to walk, being weaned etc. The second 6 weeks is about learning socialization skills. A kitten that stays with it's feline family for 12 weeks will be better adjusted, know that biting hard is unacceptable and less likely to try and suckle you (which is cute as a kitten, but can be painful when an adult).
So if you have any way to make this happen, I really suggest you do. BTW, is this kitten coming from a breeder? If so, letting them go at 8 weeks is a violation of TICA and CFA and is an indication that the breeder isn't reputable.
