Meet Bates Grandbaby #20

The 20th Bates grandchild has arrived safe and sound, and we have a photo to share! Zade Patrick Stewart went home yesterday, but while he was in the hospital, a number of family members and friends were able to visit him, including Aunt Michael.

  3. Can't believe Carlin already had baby Zade! I feel like we just found out she was having another baby and know she's bringing him home! Congrats:) He looks just like Layla!

  11. Oh my heart!❤️😍πŸ₯° I'm so in love with Baby Zade. Welcome to the boy crew sweet boy.πŸ‘ΆπŸ’™ Glad you have 5 older boy cousins (and 14 girl cousins) to teach you and play with you as well as big sister Layla. I love every picture of Michaela with each new niece or nephew. Hope and pray that she and Brandon can soon have their 1st baby through IVF treatment.

    1. Or adoption if fertility treatments don't work.

    2. Why should adoption be a second-best option?

    3. How about we assume the Keilens are capable of figuring things out for themselves? It's a safe bet that they are intelligent enough to know all about their options at this point and if they want to share anything, they will.

  14. Michaela and Brandon could have had a child long ago if adoption was their choice...a child of whatever age would have been blessed to have a family loving them and a permanent home. It seems to me that these two have not chosen that option..it seems like it is THEY who want to 'be blessed by God" rather than be a blessing to a child who has no one. Another notice is that she has gone through LPN school, graduated and has done nothing with this certificate. When you affect no change in your life, no changes will occur. I hope that these two choose to BE a blessing to a child who has no one. IMO, that would be the 'Christian' thing to do.

    1. The Christian thing to do is pray about it and let God guide you.

    2. Agreed. Sometimes the way you thought something would be isn’t necessarily what God has planned for you. Doesn’t Kelly Jo have one or two adopted siblings? They have so much love to give… even fostering a child would be awesome for them!

  15. I think that if Michaela and Brandon had wanted a child, they would have had one by now. As many people know, there are a multitude of ways to bring a child into one's family. I certainly don't mind seeing photos of Michaela holding her nieces and nephews but the many comments lamenting if and when Michaela and her husband have children of their own is getting tiresome. Perhaps, Michaela isn't so enthusiastic about rearing children. As the eldest daughter of such a large family, Michaela has probably had her fill of child-rearing and childcare. I see many similarities between Jana Duggar and Michaela. Both of these ladies had serious childcare responsibilities, which may have left them burned-out. I have a cousin in a similar situation. She was the eldest daughter in a family of 7 children. At the age of 11 years old, her mother passed away and she found herself with heavy childcare responsibilities. My cousin has not married nor had children.She is pursuing a different life for herself. I wish Michaela and her husband all the best life has for them.
