4 Weeks! It has been 4 weeks that we have had to learn to live with out you in our arms. Your spirit is EVERYWHERE. I can feel your love in your sisters, brothers and everyone in the world. We have been so blessed to live in such a wonderful community full of amazing friends and even strangers. Everyone everywhere has been showing our family so much love and support and I know it is because of the love that YOU sweet girl showed to everyone while you were here.
After you went to Heaven, Daddy and I felt God was asking us to help other orphans with complex heart conditions like yours. We had no idea how to go about helping so many children but we knew God would not ask us to do this unless HE was going to show us exactly how to, and HE did. He orchestrated it all just like HE has for your entire life. He is always in control. All we have to do is trust.
A few weeks ago out of the blue, Serena from your orphanage in China, contacted us. We had no knowledge that Little Flower was the orphanage that took care of you for two years. We told them our vision of what we wanted to do in China and they put us in contact with another family who had the same vision. You are not going to believe this Little T, but it is the family of your friend Cai Ping! You and Ping were in the same orphanage for three years together. I have so many photos of the two of you together and now here we are talking to Pings parents about how we can all help orphans like you and Ping in China in your memory. What a miracle!
Daddy and I have partnered with Little Hearts Medical Foundation. LHM mission is to provide cardiac care to orphans. Our goal is to provide mission trips several times a year with several teams from different hospitals here in the U.S. and work along side and train the Doctors in Beijing. Our goal also is to help the orphanages identify children with heart disease as soon as they are admitted into their care and then provide them with the resources and medical care immediately to treat them. Had this happened for you sweet girl your life may have been very different . You unfortunately were not diagnosed until it was too late and then you were considered "hopeless." No child should be hopeless. Every child deserves a family and a future. There are very caring Doctors in China that want to work with us , they just need a little guidance and help. Another goal that we have is to open a Heart Home in Beijing specifically for the most severe heart children and provide them with care before and after surgery. We will call the new Home " The I Love You More Heart Home " after you Teresa. Everything is moving so quickly T and I know it is because you are being "The Boss" in Heaven. I know you must be talking Jesus ear off . I know how persistent you are! I also know that HE loves you dearly.
Believe in Miracles Foundation was set up to help our family with you and your sisters medical bills, but as soon as they are taken care of, Believe in Miracles foundation will help to take care of orphans and provide them with the life saving surgeries and care they need.
Your life had such enormous purpose and now in your memory so much more is being done to help other children.
If Teresa has touched your life and you would like to help us in this mission please email me and I will share with you our plans in more detail. If you feel called to help financially , please know we will be eternally grateful to you for helping us to give orphans a future and a loving home.
Teresa's one wish was to have a family of her own.
Please help us to do this for orphans in her memory.
