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 ...

Our House

We are getting ready for another busy week in "Our House".
Ed and I continue to process all the new information for Teresa's heart . It is so nice to finally have an option , but with it comes so much to take in and consider. Our life is getting ready to go on another amazing journey filled with hope and fear at the same time. I pray we will make the right choices for Teresa's life, for Gods will to be done .

On Thursday , Mary will have a major surgery to repair her cleft palate and nose. She should be home hopefully in three days without any complications. She is actually looking forward to the surgery because she wants so badly to have a nose that looks "normal". I am really going to miss kissing her little crooked nose . I think she is so beautiful just the way she is .

Unfortunately Gemma's blood transfusion had to be bumped back a week because of Mary's surgery and several Doctors appointments for Teresa this week . She is already showing signs of her hemoglobin being low but her Doctors do not feel it will harm her to go one more week . She is VERY tired , but still eating just fine.

Thank you for continuing to pray for Teresa and we would be very grateful if you would also include prayers for Gemma and Mary .
