Bates #11 Turns 15

Wishing Katie Grace Bates a blessed 15th birthday! 

Our readers have asked why Katie doesn't seem to appear on the show as much as some of her siblings. This gal prefers to serve behind the scenes and has been known to give up her turn to go on special outings in order to help Kelly with the younger kids. Katie's name means "pure grace."
