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 ...

To say today was amazing would be an understatement.  

We started the day with breakfast with Bethany.   The entire Hamilton family is so kind.  Bethany's parents, uncle , two brothers , sister in laws and niece spent  the day with us also.  Mrs. Hamilton taught Grace how to make ti leaf lais.  

The girls spent the day surfing with Bethany and playing on the beach. Even Emilia surfed.  Bethany's coach  tandem 
Surfed with her.   All the girls had the best time .  They accomplished a dream
They never thought they could.

Tonight everyone had dinner with the entire Hamilton family.  The wish children then had individual time alone with Bethany and had the opportunity for autographs and more photos.  

After dinner everyone was treated to a movie under the stars on hanalei bay ....soul  surfer .  After the movie we all got the   inside scoop on the making of the  movie.
 Hanalei Bay on Kuai is breathtaking .  It was kinda neat to see in the movie the same beach the girls were surfing on. 

Tomorrow the girls will surf with Bethany in the morning and then go tubing down the ditch In the afternoon . 

We are all loving  the island life. "No worries" and " island time" are fantastic! 

"If you have faith anything is possible". Bethany Hamilton
