Kaci Lynn Bates is Here!


She's here! Zach and Whitney Bates welcomed daughter Kaci Lynn Bates last night, June 20th, at 10:32pm. Kaci, who arrived five days ahead of her June 25th due date, weighed in at 7 lbs. 8 oz. and was 21.5 inches long. Congratulations to the "little Bates family."

The proud parents shared this message via UP:

We were overcome with emotions that just cannot be described when we saw our little Kaci Lynn and held her in our arms for the first time....We thank the many who have prayed for us and have sent sweet messages throughout this pregnancy. We also thank the Lord for His protection and His gift of our two precious children.

  26. So glad this little girl has arrived safely! In fact I have seen 17 SEPARATE FACEBOOK POSTS of this picture in the past two hours! I'm concerned that you are over-exposing your children to whoever has Facebook account. Please encourage all your various blog groups and family members to NOT keep posting the same picture over and over. I'm a Mom of 4 and Grammy of 6 and love the Bates Family. I've never posted before but this was just so alarming that I felt prompted to say something.

    1. Barb, I wish my family was as big and as close as the Bates family, too, but I have found that a church family can be a source of rich and deep fellowship in the Lord, and is a gift that God has given us, and in fact, commands us to pursue. (Hebrews 10:25). I am praying for you that you will find a good Bible-believing church, if you don't already have one, and form some close family ties with fellow-believers in Christ.
