Over the weekend, Michael and Brandon Keilen, who will celebrate their one-year wedding anniversary next month, traveled to East Tennessee from their home near Chicago for a visit with the Bates clan. They were overjoyed to meet the newest member of the family, Kaci Lynn Bates. "I didn't want to put her down for a second!" says Michael.
