Now that the Travolta's came out that their son did in fact, have autism--I thought I'd repost this older post.

I was livid when I found out. Think of all the good they could do for the autism community and the awareness for the rest of the world.

I know it's none of my business. But those of us little people sometimes need a hero.

Here is a link to the foundation they have set up in their son's name. Heroes are better late than never.

This will be a controversial post, and I mean no disrespect to the Travolta family. I've been thinking--well--wondering if Jett Travolta did in fact, have a form of autism. The family denies it, but that is understandable too. (Maybe they called it PDD-NOS.) The reason for my speculation is this:

-Disconnected behavior in public
-His uncle, Joey Travolta, did a documentary called "Normal People Scare Me" about autism and believes Jett had a form of autism
-Holding his father's hand in public at age 16
-Being buckled into a car by his nanny
-Having a nanny.
-Toe walking
These are just some of my observations. I won't bring up their religion, because that will open up a big can of worms


  1. This is so sad. I don't know if they were in denile or just ashamed.. But at least now they are speeking out, I hope and pray they will do more.

  2. Thank you for bringing this up. I am kinda shocked that no one else is blogging about this on their blogs. It really stinks that they kept it a big secret until now. They could have done so much more for their son and to bring awareness to Autism.

  3. While I think it's a shame that they didn't make it public knowledge beforehand, I don't think any one of us has any sort of right to be angry about it. Jett is THEIR son, and they have the right to make his life as public or private as they feel they should. I know that while I am not ashamed of my son's autism, I certainly have no desire to throw him in the spotlight...I don't think it would be fair to him. The Travolta's are VERY famous people. Imagine the paparazzi following poor little Jett around asking him questions about his disability.
