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!

Prayer Weekend


Thank you everyone for praying for Teresa this weekend !
This past week has been very sad for us . Finding out Wednesday that Teresa's heart is failing even more has been very difficult. I feel even more driven now to fill every minute of every day with love and happiness for her .
This weekend in church her name was mentioned in the prayer for the sick . She heard her name called and she turned and looked at me with a very puzzled expression and said , " Why are they praying for me , I am not sick ". She does not know or feel she is sick . When I look at her face I can see it in her eyes how much she has deteriorated . She looks so tired .

Even though this past week has been hard for us , she keeps her little "Princess " smile going . Today she was Cinderella.

I am lifting you all up, especially YOUR momma heart. I am a mom to a sweetHEART little boy from China, and even though I am not in your shoes, I know the risks and scares and FEARS very well.
I am in tears as I pray for your baby girl! She has such a sweet countenance, it shines even through the internet!

Praying for all of you. This must be so frightening for you, praying that you can rest in the arms of the Lord and He will provide you all of the peace and strength that you and your family need.

Your entire family will be in my prayers. I have followed your daughter's story for a long time through Robin Magana. I am so sad to hear this news. But there are miracles.

Jennifer said...

That Miss Teresa knows the love of God and the love of a family is a miracle. Praying that she will continue to not feel sick. She has given us so much courage to continue with our adoption of a heart guy in China with a similar prognosis. In the hands of God, we pray Teresa.

Dita said...

Ann.....I too have followed you through Robin and I remember when Teresa was in China. No matter how sick your sweet little princess is in these photos....all I see is how much she is loved and knows it.

She is a beautiful little angel and I am praying for all of you.
