Welcome to Georgia's Journey

Georgia Lily Lucas was born at home on October 6th, 2008 4:15am, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) on April 1, 2009.

On April 3rd Georgia was taken home, to be near her sisters and the rest of her family and friends. Nearly three weeks later, on April 21, 2009, she died peacefully -- in the loving arms of her mother and in the same room in which she was born.

  9. What a beautiful, precious little girl! Thanks so much for sharing the pics, it is so nice to see her enjoying her time at home with her family! I love the pic with Calla and Maya jumping beside her crib, I can just imagine Georgia laughing at her wild and crazy sisters. I hope you had a good night last night and another wonderful morning.
