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!

Not Good News

We are admitted , we are going home, we are admitted , we are going home . We are finally home ! Not a good day .


This morning we went to see Teresa's cardiologist at Hopkins. For the past 3 weeks she has been holding onto a cold that would not go away . I could tell something was wrong , she just hasn't been herself . The echo revealed her already severely damaged Tricuspid valve was leaking even (dangerously )more. This is causing damage to her liver and fluid retention in her face. After a VERY long day of testing it was decided we would go home and closely monitor her and speak again in the morning to go over the blood work . She will start 2 new medicines , one to eliminate excess fluid and one to help her heart function better. Not the news we had hoped for .

To all of Teresa's prayer warrior friends , people from all over the world that pray continuously for her , people we have never met but feel called to pray for her , THANK YOU !!! Your prayers and words of wisdom and love mean so much to us . Your prayers mean more to us than you will ever know . Thank You !

Ann,

Teresa is on our prayer list. I found out about her quite by accident from another blog, but your faith and courage reminded me that MIRACLES happen. We Believe.

Ann, I will be keeping your family in my prayers this weekend. Our life has recently been touched by a girl with CHD and reading through some of your past posts helped me put things into perspective. God bless!

Ann Please know that in this tiny town in NY there is a family praying for Teresa and your family. Your story has touched our hearts from the day you said "Yes, we will be her family!" but Teresa has had our hearts since we first saw her picture when so many families were advocating for her.

A while back I shared your family story with my two daughters. My 5 year old will pray for "Tieresa" every night and sometimes she will look at me and say "did you pray for "Tieresa" we need to pray for her".
We will continue to pray to the great physician for healing and strength.
