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!

Gemma's Transfusion



This is how Gemma feels before she needs a blood transfusion. She usually receives her transfusion every 3 weeks but her Doctor's want to see if her body can start to handle every 4 weeks . With every transfusion comes a build up of excess iron that is stored by the body in the liver . She has been taking chelation medicine for 8 months to remove the iron but so far it is not working too well. Normal ferritin levels are 10-300, hers are over 3,000. Hopefully her numbers will all be good when she goes in on Wed. for her next transfusion.
