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 ...

Happy New Year !

Happy New Year !
This year we were home for New Years Eve..  For the past two New Years we have been in the hospital .  Last year Teresa was in the Hospital and the year before I think it was Lucy .  We were so happy to start a new year at home and with our family .

Not much is new , we are still waiting for Teresa's Cath. to be rescheduled .  Yes, it has been two weeks and still no dates .   Because of her complex health a lot of planning has to go into scheduling all of her procedures...
We are also still waiting for "The Call". We were so grateful to spend Christmas at home and celebrate Teresa's 6th. birthday  but the waiting is really starting to affect everyone's emotions .  So many   months of living out of a suitcase , planning every minute of everyday making sure we have a plan for when and if we get the call is very nerve wracking  .  I think even the dogs are sensing the stress .
It seems we are doing a lot of waiting .  Waiting on Gods time for everything to happen .

Teresa continues to be feeling well  . She managed to stay free of all the nasty viruses the other girls had.

Emilia had her cast turned into a removable cast , one  that she can take off for bathing and physical therapy . Two more months and she will have the rod removed and finally have her new longer , straighter arm .
Paul and Meg went back to Atlanta for school .  The girls are missing them already , especially their two dogs (Dewey and Daphne). It was wonderful having all the kids home together for Christmas.  The best gift of Christmas !

Continuing to pray for Miss T. I hope she will get her heart soon. While I can't completely understand, when our son had his surgery for his Tetrology of Fallot my husband suffered a small bout of post tramatic stress disorder. The stress of not knowing when he would need surgery drained on my poor man who held it together for the whole family. Hopefully, you will be spending every New Years Eve at home just celebrating and being happy.
