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 ...

Princess Party

This week a group of amazing seniors from Mt. De Sales took time out of their busy senior week activities and had a "Princess PARTY " FOR Teresa and Gemma. These young ladies came dressed in their favorite princess attire. They read the girls books , let the girls put make up on them and talked about what it was like being a "Princess".
The girls loved it !
Thank you Mary for organizing this magical day ! We are so blessed by your friendship.

Lucy received great news this week . The surgery she had a few months ago on her bladder and kidney was a success and she will not require any further treatment.!!!

The photos are of our "Happy Times " over the past few weeks, Grandpops and Mary's Birthday , the frogs turning to tadpoles , feeding the horses and being silly with bubbles.
Last night Tim Mcgraw sang "Live Like You were Dieing" on American Idol. This made me think what would I do differently ? Teresa lives like that everyday except she doesn't know she is dieing , to her it is just living and living with pure happiness for everything . Over the past year this is the biggest lesson our family has learned from Teresa. To celebrate every minute of every day as if it were your last and to be grateful for EVERYTHING .
