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!

Make A Wish

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 !

This is an amazing update, but with everyone praying and fasting, maybe we should expect this more often. Everyone please continue the prayers and fasting. It was not too long ago when Teresa was not doing that well. People joined together in prayer and fasting, and she has been doing much better now.

Only God knows what lies in the future, but I believe He has been listening to the prayer warriors.

I hope her wish brings all of you much joy.

God Bless,

What a great update on Teresa! I can't wait to hear her wish. (Too bad she didn't ask to go to Rome!) ;)

So happy to hear she is doing better. We pray for her every day. I'm so glad she is taking the Make A Wish trip. We went on one with our SaraGrace (to Disney) and she LOVED it. MAW is an amazing organization. I was in awe at how much they did to make the trip a very special memory. I know you will all love it!

Great news on her checkup - taking what we can get! As for Make a Wish - great group - friends from adoption had a wish granted for their daughter too - it was also a princess - and they ended up on a Disney Princess cruise which was managable for their girl - it was a dream come true for her!

Oh - and please tell Fr. Whatley that I intend to quote him too!

hugs - prayers - aus and co.
