Gil & Kelly Bates

God has blessed us with 19 precious children. We are not a perfect family, as there are no perfect people. We are aware that any successes we have experienced in our family are a result of the culmination of help from many others God has brought in our lives. We’re humbled more often than we’d like to be and we find that we’re often wrong more than we are right. You can visit the Bates' website at http://thebatesfamily.com/
