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 ...

Emilia's Leg

For the past 8 months Emilia's leg was slowly being lengthened . Yesterday she had her external fixator removed . Her right leg is now the same length as her left leg !!! She is so happy .
The plan was to remove the ex fix and insert a rod into the bone from the hip to ankle for support, but this was unable to happen because she had an infection in the bone from the pins. So now the plan is to stay in the full cast for 8 weeks and then re evaluate her leg and maybe insert the rod in 8 weeks when the infection is clear.

Her future will require several more operations on both legs and her arms but she has such a positive attitude , she never complains and just keeps smiling .

Happy , Happy , Happy just to have a leg like everyone else .

I look at the expression of that little doll laying in bed casted from stem to stern - and I've got to just be awe struck - that is one seriously tough little girl - tougher than any DI I've ever met!!

And I love the candy cane lookin' cast too!
