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 - Our Last Day

Tomorrow we leave for home. This journey has been truly amazing. The people that God put in our path is nothing short of a miracle. Everyone we met was somehow connected in some way to Teresa. They were care givers, volunteers, nurses, nannies and other adoptive parents. We had a mission after Teresa passed away to help other orphans and God has orchestrated it all. HE has allowed us to see things that have once again forever changed who we are. Some things we saw were unbearable and I was at first very angry with God for showing us this. But then I realized God was not doing this, HE was allowing us to see it so we could do something to help. We all must do something to help.

Our hearts were also filled with much Joy. After Teresa passed we were filled with so much sadness I did not think we would ever be able to feel joy again. This trip has given us Joy once again. We are very excited about the plans for the new heart home (Love You More Heart Home). The ground work has been laid out and we know exactly what we need to accomplish. We will have the potential to help so many heart orphans and also help very poor families to receive surgery for their children. We know God will lead us and orchestrate it all.

This trip was so emotional that I am at a loss on how to describe it all. Once we process it, I will post more details.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us on this incredible journey. A journey that we would never had known had we said no to adoption and God leading us to China.
