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 ...

The Good /The Bad

The good news is Teresa had another great week . She is feeling so well and loving spring time. We seem to have made it through the winter with only one major hospitalization and a few close calls. She did so much better than any of us thought possible . When her cardiologist explained to us at the beginning of winter all the possibilities that could happen over the winter flu months , we were all afraid she might not make it through the winter ... BUT she did !!!!! We are now into spring Yeah !!! Thank you prayer warriors !!! You carried her through the winter . We are eternally grateful to you all !

The other GREAT news is ... we have another wonderful daughter in law ( well almost )!
Paul proposed to Meghan last night ! We love Meghan ! She has been Paul's best friend since high school . She is such a sweet, caring and nice girl. They do not plan on getting married for a few more years because Paul would like to finish medical school and Meghan would like to finish PT school first . We are so happy for the two of them .

The bad news ... My car was broken into and my purse was stolen . Even though it will be a pain to replace my drivers license , bank card , broken window ... I had all of Teresa's medical records in my purse to be sent to Pitt. for a second opinion . I can still send them , it will just take me some time to recopy them all.
It is very disheartening when you work so hard and it is taken away so fast by someone who doesn't care at all. What little money we had saved for Grace, Eddy and Mary's Birthday this month was taken also .
I know , I should not have left my purse in the car , believe me , I have learned my lesson !

Congratulations Paul and Meghan!! And so glad to hear about Teresa - such a Blessing - to all of us!

And ya know - you SHOULD be able to leave your purse in the car - or anywhere else for that matter - just a symptom of the world in which we live....So sorry for the loss!

Hi Ann ~ I'm going to Pray for a Miracle! That someone, somewhere, some way will find your purse! That the things that you really want and need will be returned. And, for that new Doctor to have some great news for Sweet Teresa!
Sorry that bad things happen to good people!! Hugs ~ Jo

I'm so sorry that happened, Ann. Some people just think only of themselves and don't consider that others have to pay for their selfishness.

Happy to hear Teresa is having good weeks! We are still praying!

And congratulations on your newest daughter-in-law!
