First let me say " Thank you " to everyone. Thank you for all of the prayers, kind words and unconditional love and support. I know everyone has been praying for Teresa and I want everyone to know how VERY grateful we are to you all !
I really debated about whether or not to write this . I felt I would not be doing everything I could for Teresa if I did not.
When we adopted Teresa we promised to do everything we could medically to help her . We knew she was our daughter from the moment we saw her photo. (This is a very long story that started many years ago that is filled with unbelievable turns of events that GOD orchestrated. I promise to post this story later). For the past six months Teresa has stolen our hearts.
Going to CHOP last Friday and hearing all over again how very ill she is has brought back emotions that I had put aside. With the daily routine of life it is easy to get caught up in these routines and not face reality . I have been so busy with the Holidays , doctors apt., surgeries, moving 2 kid back to college that I have been in denial about Teresa. She has been doing OK, she had 2 illnesses but she seemed to come back OK from them and she is looking OK and gaining weight . Everyone says how great she looks. So it has been easy to be in denial about her health . Maybe she will beat this , maybe she will live a very long life, maybe, maybe maybe...
But on Friday hearing the Doctor say "Yes, this is good news her pressure has come down a little, BUT, her heart might not make it another year" , was like a slap in the face that knocked me back into reality .
So this is why I am writhing this post. I need your help . For the past six months I have researched every detail of Teresa's heart and lung condition . We have taken her to the best Doctors, we have gotten second and third opinions . I have not left one stone unturned medically for her . I promised six months ago to do everything medically possible for her , and we have. Only GOD can save her now ...if this is HIS will. I love Teresa with all my heart but I know GOD loves her more and I know He has a very special plan for her life. Her entire life so far has been a miracle .
I am asking everyone, from one Mom to another , one friend to another , one adoptive parent to another ... to PLEASE ASK EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO ASK EVERYONE THEY KNOW TO PLEASE PRAY FOR A MIRACLE FOR TERESA'S HEART AND LUNGS TO BE HEALED. PLEASE PRAY ,PRAY , PRAY !
I am no longer knocking on Heavens Door , I am banging on Heavens Door.
I want God to be tired of hearing the name , "TERESA ".
Pope John Paul 2 needs one more miracle to be canonized. This is who we are asking to intercede for Teresa to be healed. If you are not Catholic , please feel free to pray in your own families religious belief. We are praying to the same GOD and we are grateful for ALL prayers !
Please help us pray for this miracle by telling everyone about Teresa's story .
I am making prayer cards for Teresa. If you would like me to mail you some to give out please email me -firstname.lastname@example.org
I am doing this because I have to know that I did everything medically and spiritually possible for Teresa.
Thank you for every ones help!
"Where there is great love , there are always great miracles" Mother Teresa
