Urgent Prayers for Teresa

Our Place Called Home

URGENT:  Please pray for a beautiful princess named Teresa, adopted from China with severe congenital heart defects.  She was adopted in July 2010, shortly after Chrissie went to live with Jesus.  Teresa’s mommy asked us to pray for their daughter and their family shortly after Teresa joined their family, and she asked if Chrissie's amazing cardiologist, Dr. Mary Porisch, would review Teresa’s heart files to see if she could do anything to help save her life (which she did).  I’ve asked for prayer before on our blog for Teresa, and you may have seen Teresa’s story on the Today Show or various other TV programs and news reports.  She truly is a miracle girl who reminds me so much of our Princess Chrissie in too many ways to count, from her infectious smile, joyful personality, broken heart, princess warrior spirit, love of family and life, to the mere fact that she was chosen and adopted, knowing she might not live as long a life as we all hope and pray for our children.


Last night, Teresa received her miracle of a heart transplant, but today her new heart failed and she was put on ECMO, the same life-saving device Chrissie was on. 


Teresa is an absolute miracle, and she is in need of our prayers.  Her family is, too.  We've been in similar shoes as Teresa’s family, and your prayers comforted us more than anything else during that time.  Jesus' presence was stronger in our lives during Chrissie's 31-day heart battle than any other time of our lives.  I pray Teresa and her family feel His presence, peace, and comfort that passes all understanding during this time, and I ask you to join me in prayer for them all.  Thank you!
