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!

Update

Teresa's transplant was completed this morning at 5:30 AM. Since the surgery was completed, the right ventricle on the new heart began to struggle and appeared to be more damaged than expected. Since then it was discovered that the left ventricle was also damaged and Teresa's new heart stopped working and CPR was performed for 30 minutes. Teresa has been placed on life support in order to give the heart a chance to rest. The doctors expect her to remain on life support for three days and then they will reassess. If this heart proves too damaged to function she will be re-listed for another heart transplant and remain on life support.

I haven't met you, but found a link to your blog on Facebook. Praying tearfully here in Virginia for your little Teresa and her heart. May the Lord bring health and strength and healing in Jesus' name. Your pics at CHOP hit me close to home as that is where my Lilly (same age a Teresa) gets her regular spine surgeries. Her virtual twin sister spent a very brief time at Half the Sky in Luoyang as well. Prayers for you all. I'll stay tuned for updates.
