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 ...

Counting the days ...

Last night our 2 angels from The Make A Wish foundation came over to deliver Teresa's itinerary for her wish trip. It is going to be a wonderful trip filled with so much magic for Teresa. The excitement is growing . The girls are counting down the days!

Last week Teresa informed me that she was not going to wear her oxygen in Florida because Princesses do not need oxygen . The child life specialist at Hopkins came up with a fantastic idea . They gave Teresa a Princess Aurora doll wearing oxygen . She was so happy . She can not wait to show all of the princesses her doll wearing oxygen just like her.

A few days ago Lucy started not feeling well. She has a very bad virus that is affecting her asthma along with a very high fever.
She is on an antibiotic, oral steroids and nebulizer treatments trying to get it under control.
For the past 11 months we have lived in fear of
Teresa catching a virus . If she should get the virus Lucy has , she most likely will not be able to go on her trip.
I must sound like a broken record to the kids saying ,"take off your shoes, wash your hands, can that be bleached?..." I am so tired of living in fear .

I am trusting God will protect her and give her the most magical week of her life .

Oh, Ann, I hope Lucy will recover quickly and that Teresa will not catch the virus. Keeping you all in our prayers....

AWW Ann - I'm sure that 1) Lucy will be back on her feet in no time - and 2) that Teresa will dodge this one too!

And cudos to the brilliant CLS from Hopkins!!

Holding you guys close - hugs and prayers -
