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!

She is such a beautiful angelic child :):) What a mini-miracle she received to have been granted permission to receive her First Holy Communion at her age. But her understanding of God is so profound for such a young child.
She really is lovely and I am very proud of her:) My two children from China will be receiving theirs this school year. I hope they can grasp the importance of this like Teresa can.
May receiving Jesus enable her to be completely healed.
God Bless,
Lee Ann

Beautiful photos. There are tears in my eyes. I have followed your daughter for a couple of years now through my friend Robin. I pray for her continuously and for your family who so bravely came forward to love her and bring the joy that just beams in her face in these photos.

I cannot imagine more beautiful photos......these gave me chills...every single one of them warmed my heart and reminded me of the little girl in China who was so desperately looking for a family...I remember Robin advocating for her...and they you stepped in and you and your beautiful daughter were united. I see how much T has grown in this last year in the loving warmth of your family....her family. The photo of you holding your precious little Princess on this very special day just says it all to me...to love and be loved...that is what life is.
Congratulations, Princess Teresa!!

I went immediately to your blog Sunday evening hoping for pictures. They brought tears to my eyes. This tiny child, who waited way too long for the love of a family, finally blessed, and then, welcomed by the immeasurable grace of Christ, in Holy Baptism, and now to Holy Communion. Thanks so much for sharing Teresa's story. She is grace to us all.

Only just caught up with Teresa's story tonight - last I knew you were in Disney - and, oh my! Tears! What a beautiful day for Teresa and your family. How wonderful to have the Mass celebrated in your home. I am so glad she was able to receive this sacrament that meant so much to her.
