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!

St. Patrick's Day



Lucy came home from school yesterday announcing she was 1/2 Irish . "Really ?" , I said. "Yep, I am 1/2 Chinese , 1/2 American and 1/2 Irish ." She had so much fun celebrating St. Patrick's Day she decided she would become Irish . She loves her family so much , she decided she was 1/2 American . I told her we love her so much that we became 1/2 Chinese too.
No matter how you add it up it equals 100% total HAPPINESS for her !

Teresa wasn't sure what all the green fuss was about. Green isn't one of her favorite colors since there isn't a Princess that wears this color . But she had fun making Irish Soda Bread and eating it even if it was green .

Our family is 1/2 Chinese, 1/2 American, 1/2 Irish, and 1/2 a few other things too! I love Lucy's perspective on St. Patrick's Day! What great photos of your girls baking together.

Glad that you three decided to be half-Italian for the evening, yesterday! It was good to meet you, and Princess Teresa - the cards will get passed on to the MC sisters in Baltimore, and to the Lay MC group.

Whatever Teresa's miracle will be, you've been a miracle for Teresa - praying equally for strength and grace for your and your family.

I always say that we are a Polish-Hungarian-German-Italian-Korean-Chinese, All-American Family. All adopted by God the Father through Jesus Christ. Here's a great video about adoption, by the way: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6jO7xhU_Pw

Love that she loves her family. Praying every night for all your girls.
