"When birthdays come, it's just another opportunity to take that child out, just them, and to try to make them feel special."
Even though they have 19 children, Gil and Kelly Bates are always looking for changes to spend one-on-one time with each kid. In the video below, the proud parents take Ellie Bates out to eat for her ninth birthday. During the meal, they enjoy showing Ellie some of her baby pictures. They also pull out a childhood photo of Kelly. Do you see the resemblance between Kelly and Ellie?
