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 ...

For the past week Mary has been very quiet and would start to cry at the drop of a hat. I've asked her if she felt OK, had a bad day in school, too much homework , anything I could think of that might be bothering her. Nothing!
The other night at dinner, Grace was giving her a hard time about lifting the headstone off of my leg saying, "Your not that strong... You couldn't lift that... I don't believe you ..."(the tombstone is 4x4 and solid marble) , and Mary just sat there and didn't say anything . I told Grace to stop and leave her alone... Then Mary looked up and said something , but no one could hear what she said , so Grace said" speak up if you want to say something " ( Grace is only 11, but boy has that teenage attitude started already!)
Mary said " I didn't lift it , Jesus did".
Well that shut Grace up, she didn't say another word.
After dinner I took Mary in the other room so I could talk to her alone and ask her what had happened . She said after she handed me the cell phone , I called 911 and while I was talking to the operator , Jesus came to her and told her to go back over to the headstone and HE would help her to lift it. She said OK and went over and lifted it with Jesus and then said Thank you . My Leg came out and she ran over to
It took her almost a week of holding this all inside to tell us what had happened. She wasn't scared, just upset that I was hurt and not sure if she should tell anyone what had happened.
I wasn't quite sure what to say to her except, "Thank you Mary for helping me and Thank you for helping Jesus, you are very special and always have been. "

Another miracle and how lucky and blessed your daughter was to have Jesus speak to her directly. What a wonderful daughter she is to know Jesus like that and to recognize His call.

Your entire family is such an inspiration to others.

God Bless all of you,
