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!

LISTED !!!!!

A MIRACLE has occurred  !   Two years after coming home from China with Teresa ,  we have the MIRACLE we have prayed for .   Two years of being told by several different Doctors  that it would take a  MIRACLE for Teresa to be listed for ONLY a heart transplant has occurred .

TERESA IS BEING LISTED FOR A HEART TRANSPLANT   !!!!!!!!!!

Words can not fully describe the joy we feel .

For Two years we wrestled with the hopelessness that the world had to offer and clung to the hope only Jesus could give .

Two years ago before we started Teresa's adoption we met with our Pastor to discuss if this was Gods Will.  His advice to us was ,
"The Will of God will never lead you , where the Grace of God will not protect you ".

This morning we met again with Father Whatley to discuss Teresa's MIRACLE .  He reassured us of  the miracle of Teresa's life .  God is using her life to touch others ...

Next week we will find out if our insurance will approve the transplant  then we will  start  the wait .  Teresa will be listed as a 1B.  1A is the most critical  then 1B then 2. 

A few (well actually a lot ) of other details need to be worked out also as to how we will be able to arrive at CHOP within 1-2 hours . We are 2 hours without any traffic and leaving from our home .  We have also started the process to find help with the care of the girls while I am gone .  Our Church is awesome with the amount of help they are offering !





As we start yet another journey on this amazing  path God is leading us , we  are so VERY grateful to everyone  for praying for  Teresa !   The power of prayer and love can move mountains !

We have been praying with you, and this is WONDERFUL news! We are so happy for you!

We'll keep praying for all the details to work out too, and perhaps we can help in some way! We are only 30 minutes from CHOP.

After clicking on your blog twice a day for nearly a week, I am thrilled to hear your blessed announcement. I didn't know if I should laugh or cry. Faith, hope and love all rolled up into the gift that is Teresa--it's lifegiving. I will join the prayers of the masses who are going to lift this child before her Maker, Reedemer and Sustainer, pleading for Teresa's life and mission on earth through the miracle of a heart transplant. And, of course, prayers are raised for her family as you continue to take this journey with her.
Shalom.

From the moment I first read of Teresa here on your blog, I felt so strongly that her time on earth was not to be the short span predicted by the doctors. I have waited, with my breath held, many times as I opened your blog to read the unfolding story. While my mortal heart is rejoicing, my eternal heart is saying, "Of course she's listed!"

What a long hard road you've all traveled to reach this point! It has also not escaped me to acknowledge that for Teresa to have a heart, someone else must lose their child and I know that must weigh heavily on your own heart, too.

Most likely, you'll have to stay close to the medical center, but if you can, contact the local ambulance companies and see if they will donate an ambulance ride for you, or, better yet, contact Life Flight or a similar group. Post notices at your local big and small airports for private pilots and plane owners.

I am so very, very, very happy that Teresa will have this chance at life! Her spirit is so strong that, no matter what, it will endure.

The dust is finally settling as we wind down to our exchange student leaving tomorrow morning, so I'll apologize for not getting in here sooner. Comment #1 - HOORAH - no other word to describe the Grace of our Father - and evidence that He hears our prayer!!

As for transportation - please contact your local police agency - I'm sure that your chief will be happy to place a 'standing order' that a marked car and driver will be dispatched at your call - that's the kind of thing we LOVE to do! You've had a great many other suggestions as well - any or all of them are very reasonable ones - get the world involved!

great joy for you guys - hugs - aus and co.
