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 ...
I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES!

Friday

Last night was very scary. At 11pm, Teresa's breathing was still deteriorating so she went down to get her third xray within 24 hours. I had no idea that her lungs could fill with fluid this fast . Just hours before, the second xray showed her lungs were clear, now they showed...progressive cardiomegaly and pulmonary vascular congestion with evidence of worsening congestive heart failure. At 1;30 her sats. dropped into the 50's and she was really struggling to breath even with oxygen , nebulizers and lasix. she finally stabilized and was able to get a Little sleep.

This morning she looked a little better but every time she moved or sat up her sats went back to 63.

Thank you for praying .
Praying for an easier night of breathing and no more damage to her heart or lungs.

I was just looking at pictures of Teresa on China Care's facebook page, and I couldn't help but truly think about how many hearts she touches. As her heart struggles, our hearts beat faster wanting her to survive. We are on our knees praying for this precious girl.

Ann, I just wanted you to know that I advocated for Teresa when Half The Sky made us aware of her and her serious heart condition. We had just adopted a child with single ventricle and several other heart defects, so we knew it would be a very special family who would adopt Teresa. I have a tender place in my heart for your daughter, and am pained to hear she's so ill now. I am praying for her and your whole family during this difficult time.
Blessings, Petrie
