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 Wishes

Today for Teresa's "wish", we went to the Studios to meet the cast of Beauty and The Beast. Teresa was mesmerized by the show . Afterwards we went back stage and met the cast . Teresa and Belle talked about being a princess, make up, jewelry, wishes , dreams and of course wearing oxygen . I know the characters play a certain part and are scripted on how to talk to the children and how to interact with them but this princess really went above and beyond any of our expectations to accommodate Teresa. She made this dream of Teresa's so special . You could tell she really was touched by her .
This evening we went to GKTW for a Christmas dinner. Every Thursday is Christmas. We had dinner with Mrs. Claus. Afterwards we met Santa and all of the girls received Christmas gifts. There was Cookie decorating, caroling, snow , horse rides, stories, and more gifts... To say GKTW is an amazing place is an understatement. They truly make everyone feel so special .
