“Benjamin is the best gift we could possibly have. For us it’s been uplifting. Especially when he smiles at me and seems contented in my arms. He’s given the house a renewed spirit and purpose.” – John on the birth of his second son.

“We [had been trying] for quite a few years . . . When I found out I was pregnant, I was floored. I’d snuck out of bed and then came back and woke Johnny up in bed. We both started crying. It was wonderful.” Kelly on the moment she found out she was pregnant with Benjamin.

“The baby was playing this tiny piano we got him, and we were so blown away! A lot of times kids will bang it, but he was using his fingers.” proud mama Kelly on her son’s talent of tickling the ivories.

    Hi! First time commenter here–I love this site, but I have a suggestion: Jett should be listed as a sibling even though he’s deceased. In lieu of an age, you can list his date of birth and date of death instead (XX-XX-XXXX to XX-XX-XXXX). Even though he’s gone, I’m sure his parent still consider him a son and sibling to their other children!

    Happy Birthday Benjamin! Happy birthday to the Travoltas… I know he doesn’t replace Jett in any way, but what a wonderful help I am sure their newest addition is in the healing process for them after his loss.

    Jett was a sibling. Why would he not be listed as such? Tacky.
