A few days ago we met with The make A Wish organization . I had been putting it off because it seemed like such a sad process to start but we decided we would make Teresa's wish into a happy event to celebrate her life . I want to celebrate Her birth parents for giving her life , the orphanage for finding her the medical care she needed ,The China Care organization for providing her with the best care possible and filling all of her days with love , ASIA (our adoption agency ) for helping us to bring Teresa home , everyone all over the world for praying for her to find a home, Teresa's prayer warriors for covering her in prayer all of the time , Our wonderful community and friends for supporting us and helping us with fund raisers, Our church for unconditional love and support, Father Whatley who gave us the spiritual guidance to follow Gods Will and our children who all have had to make tremendous sacrifices on this journey .
I am not sure where they will send Teresa for her celebration but I know it will be wonderful. She told them she would like to be a princess . This week her favorite princess is Belle. Believe it or not she also told them she LOVES Jennifer Lopez and American Idol . She LOVES watching her every week and continuously comments throughout the entire show on her finger nail polish , lipstick and hair . So funny !
My wish was for her to go to Rome for the Beatification of Pope John Paul II but that some how did not come out of her mouth . Oh well.
Today we also had great news at the cardiologist . Last month she was having a lot of trouble getting over a cold , her oxygen was very low and she had little energy . When we went to the cardiologist last month it was discovered that her tricuspid valve was severely leaking and causing her liver to be very enlarged also.
Now she is doing much better. Her liver has slightly decreased in size , her pulmonary pressure has decreased slightly and her pulmonary gradient has improved ! Her oxygen today was 83 !!!!
Thank You Jesus ! God is Good !
