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!

How sad for little Gemma. Heartbreaking. Look what you and Ed instilled in your children. The love and believe of God and Heaven. That is what will get them through. Will be thinking about you tomorrow and the days ahead. Know our prayers are with you. Also know, we are there for you. You will never be alone. We spent a lot of time praying for Teresa...our work is not done...we are here for you now. Also know that I always wanted to meet Teresa. What an inspiration she is to me. I still plan on meeting you someday...to thank you in person for sharing your daughter with me...she taught me so much about life and love...I will never forget that. Take care.

I have been praying for your entire family, but especially for your precious Gemma. Our trio is 5 months apart and they think in "3"...always looking out for one another. Oh Gemma... what a reunion it will be one day in heaven, sweet one!

Much Love,
Robin

Oh, sweet Gemma! She must feel like she is missing half of herself. She has been on all of our minds...I keep thinking of how you have said she struggles with speech. I am praying she is able to have the words she needs to express herself and let you all know how she is doing and what she needs at this time. Praying praying praying for all of you and hoping Gemma and all of you can feel Teresa's presence when you need it.

Oh....sweet sweet Gemma, my heart just breaks for you...I know you will have the support of your loving your family. I have thought of you so much during all this. Blessings to you and your family. Tammy

Have been praying for your family all day.....my heart goes out to each of you. Our Lord called you to a very difficult ministry of love for one of the least of these, and as you loved and ministered to Teresa and to each of her 4 China "sisters", you did it unto Him! May He hold in the palm of His hand and comfort you in these days of sorrow here on earth. Sweet Teresa is no doubt "being boss" in heaven, laughing, dancing, and enjoying her new heart and lungs, all with Jesus, our Savior! Bless you!!!

I love how God works in the covenant family. I have been praying for your family for years now. Over the past few days Gemma has been on my heart. I have begged God to heal her grief and help her to understand His love in such a sad place for her. God bless your sweet family and know that people all over are touched by sweet Teresa and called to pray for her best little buddy!

Dear Gemma,

I was worried about how this was affecting you and know you are sad and miss her, but also know you must be happy now that your best friend can play without her oxygen or getting tired. Teresa wants you to be happy because she knows one day you will be together again having fun. I will pray that you are not so sad and that Jesus will send angels to comfort you and your family.

God bless,
Lee Ann
