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 ...

Gemma Rose

Poor Gemma came home from school yesterday completely exhausted. She did not want to do anything . When I asked her what her favorite thing of the day was , she said ...lunch and nap time! That's my Gemma Rose !
She was due for her transfusion this week and her hemoglobin had dropped VERY low . Her little lips were so white.
Today she is feeling much better. It's amazing how a little blood can make her feel energized and ready to go . She will have to go back to receiving her transfusions every 3 weeks because 4 was a little too long .

Hi Ann-
We are bringing home a little one that needs transfusions too! Our Mia has them every 4 weeks. I am not sure what to expect- is there anything we need to bring to China for her? I am going to ask that they transfuse her close to when we pick her up.
