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 ...

5 minutes

Jesus has given us hope for today !  Teresa was taken off the paralytic and morphine  and woken up for 5 minutes. She squeezed my hand, wiggled her toes and tried so hard to breath and open her eyes!
This is fantastic news !  

I told her she was the boss and she had to boss her heart now to beat and she squeezed my hand again . 

She loves  being the boss! 

Tonight eddy is bringing up grace , Mary and Lucy to see her .

So grateful for something as simple as holding her hand and watching her wiggle her toes! 

Tomorrow she will slowly be weaned down on ecmo and given an ultra sound to look at the function on the left and right sides of her heart !  This will be day three on ecmo , her Easter Sunday after 
 going through Good Friday on Monday .

I want to send u these lyrics for I feel they represent all of those recipients and those waiting. Lots of love

David Cook "Time of MY LIFE"

I’ve been waiting for my dreams
To turn into something I could believe in
And looking for that magic rainbow
On the horizon, I couldn’t see it

Until I let go, gave in to love
Watched all the bitterness burn
Now I'm coming alive, body and soul
Feeling my world start to turn

And I'll taste every moment and live it out loud
I know this is the time, this is the time to be
More than a name or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time, this is the time of my life
The time of my life

Holding on to things that vanished
Into the air, left me in pieces
But now I'm rising from the ashes
Finding my wings and all that I needed

Was there all along, within my reach
