The Bartlinski Bunch

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 ...

China - BJU Hospital

Our day started off early this morning as we headed to the BJU Hospital in Beijing. We received a tour of the entire hospital. We then had lunch with the nursing staff. Afterwards Dianna presented a lecture to the nurses on post op cardiac care. It was very informative and they seemed to really appreciate the information.

Tomorrow we are meeting with the team to discuss the plans for the new heart home. We are very excited to be part of a group with the same desire as us to help the orphans with severe heart disease. There is such a tremendous need for care of orphans with heart disease. I know we can not save them all but we can make a difference in the lives of many.

On Sunday we will take the bullet train to Taiyuan. We will visit the Taiyuan SWI and also The Little Flower Foster home there. On Monday we will drive to the Lvliang SWI. This is Teresa's orphanage. Hopefully we will be able to help them identify children with Cardiac disease sooner so they can receive medical help before their lungs become damaged.

This is the first time in 28 years that Ed and I have been away without any of our children. It is a little odd not to be giving baths, brushing hair, feeding, medicine . . . and it is a little too quiet. We feel the most comfortable when we are in the orphanage helping care for the children.

There is such a tremendous need for adoptions, medical care and love here. If the world could only see the faces of the children just wanting to be loved.

Praying for the whole Bartlinski family. And praying that God direct you to the people who need to hear about the home,how to spot cardiac kids, and that people will see their children in the photos you post and be moved to help. My little Guangxi heart girl is singing along to 'For Good" from hearing it on your blog. Lifting you in prayer. We only knew Teresa through the blog but we've been changed as well. For good. May you have the peace that passes understanding as you work in China and return home.

My husband and I are in the process of adopting a baby girl from China. In just a few months, our dossier should be done. We go for our fingerprinting next week. However, with our agency, we were told that the wait for a heart baby for a girl under 12 months, could be 2 plus years. We were hoping it would be sooner. Do you have any info that could help us expedite our process?
