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.

some videos of Georgia at home

Here are a couple videos of Georgia playing after we took her home. Sorry it's taken me a while to post these, we've been so busy! I've also got several pictures that I'll try to post soon.

It sure is nice to see her having fun and interacting ... what a difference from the hospital!

1. Piano Playing ... this was the day after we took her home and had a "pizza picnic" on our bed.

2. Balloons ... she got so many balloons on her 1/2 birthday party, and she really likes to move them around.

Take care
