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 ...

Guess who stopped by tonight ?  
The girls heard a commotion outside and ran to the front door to see what it could be .    Santa was outside of our house on his motorcycle sleigh .  We had met Santa a few weeks ago at The Ronald McDonald house and he  decided to pay us a visit .  What a welcome surprise .  The girls were very excited .  Gemma was already telling him what she wanted for next Christmas.  Apparently Santa forgot her new doll ...(oops).
There is never a dull moment around here  . Sometimes I wish there was but not this week . We had lots and lots of Doctors visits.  I believe everything happens for a reason . When Teresa' cath. , MRI and feeding tube were canceled for Friday because of her cough and also there was not a bed in the CICU to recover in ( she was going to have to recover in the ICU )  I felt it was happening for a reason .  
The reasons : Gemma has bronchitis , Mary has the  flu and Lucy  ended up in the Hopkins ER last night with a very bad asthma attack and Pneumonia .
  Not exactly the reason I was hoping for but Santas visit made everyone feel a whole lot better !
By Gods grace , Teresa has miraculously avoided all of these viruses .
