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 Chinese New Year !

                                                          Jia Yi in orphanage 2009

                                                      Jia Yi is on the end in the light pink dress 2013!

Teresa is feeling better .  The fever turned out to be the begining of a minor cold .  Right now it is not too bad  but it is really making her tired .

On Saturday we celebrated Chinese New Year with our local FCC.  The girls really enjoy going to this every year so I am so glad Tersea was feeling better and could enjoy it .

It was a very joyful day because we met the family that adopted Jia Yi .  Jia Yi is a little girl that we met in China 3 years ago when we delivered Christmas stockings to her orphanage .    She really captured our hearts with her sweet little voice and joyful smile .  She had just had surgery on her legs and could not walk but she was so sweet and happy anyway .  When we came home from China we started advocating for her to find her family .  The orphanage had not yet started her paperwork so she was not yet adoptable . We had our friend push to get them moving on it  and after a few months her file was released and a family who happens to live close to us adopted her !  This is such a blessing because we never thought we would see Jia Yi again .

Jia Yi's Orphanage is also the same Orphanage that we found  Baby Josiah starving to death . This little baby was laying all alone in the corner too weak to cry  But not too weak to smile and lift his hand to be LOVED !  We had him moved to Lynsay and Bills Home and they nurtured him back to health .  Sadly last year he was returned to this orphanage where he still waits for his forever family to bring him home .  He is now 3 1/2 yeas old .  Could you be his Mother and Father   ?

Great stuff here! We had our Korean Family Connection CNY a week ago - and have our FCC event Sunday - that way we can do the WHOLE CNY celebration! Glad she's feeling a little better!

Oh, my this brings back lots of memories. Both of my girls are from this orphanage (actually the old one) and were adopted in '06 and '09. I checked your blog and was so surprised to see the faces of children I have held, as well as Director Yan and Teresa W.! Teresa is an advocate and great help for our girls and many other children. Praying for your family...

Oh, wow -- I don't know how I missed y'all at the FCC event and I was worried but AJ told me she saw you so I felt a bit better. It's good knowing Teresa 's doing better than feared... Definitely the makings of a Happy New Year! :-)
