Teresa "Fang Fang " Bartlinski

Teresa was born on December 25, 2006 in China. She was born with a very complex heart condition. In July 2010, GOD added Teresa to our family through adoption. We have been blessed with 9 wonderful children. Gods grace has woven us together as a family. Upon bringing Teresa home from China we unfortunately learned she not only needed a heart transplant but also a lung transplant. Her doctors feel she would not survive this operation. Please help us to pray for a miracle for Teresa's heart and lungs to be healed. She is a very special little soul who has touched so many lives around the world ...

Yesterday's flight from Tiayuan to Guangzhou went very well. Teresa oxygen level dropped to 72 . She seemed to do OK with her breathing. She started to cough a little bit more and her breathing became a little more labored but still OK. Thank you everyone for all of the prayers!

Today we went to the Exit physical. All children entering the US are now required to have ALL of their vaccinations and a TB test before being allowed to enter the US. We luckily met our favorite Doctor there( he is the same Doctor to do all 5 of the girls physicals and he was so happy to see us again . He is now retired and was at the clinic only by chance today filling in for someone). He signed a waiver for Liu Fang not to get all the vaccinations that she is missing because it would be too much for her little body with her heart so sick.

Guangzhou is getting ready for the ASIAN Games being held here in November. For the past year the city has been under construction trying to refurbish the buildings. In December there was construction everywhere . Now it is almost done. The city looks so different. The landscape looks very pretty and the buildings now are painted in pastel colors.

Teresa continues to adjust so well to everything.

Hello. I am here by way of Robin, over at Tea for Two . . . We are also an adoptive family. Our little girl was a China Care baby in Baoji, born with microtia. We always LOVE following stories of other CC babies. And when word started getting out about your sweet little one needing a home SOON, I put the word out on my blog for prayer. So glad to see that prayer answered. May the Lord bless you all with the wisdom, resources, and guidance you need to parent this precious girl and to get her the medical help she needs. We also happen to be HUGE advocates of Children's Hospital of Philadelphi - one of the top two children's hospitals in the nation. So if we can ever be of help/connection there, let us know. In the meantime, congratulations and may God's richest blessings FLOOD your home and your family!

I am so thankful that Teresa didn't have to have the vaccines and that before long she will be home where she belongs.
