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.

Build A Bear

Today we met our friends Nat, Hannah, Eva and Ethan at the mall. They had decided that their gift for Maya's 3rd birthday would be a Build-A-Bear. Hannah and Eva brought along their special stuffies and Calla got to build one along side Maya. Calla chose the lamb, no surprise there for those of you that know her. Maya chose a dark brown bear like Hannah's. Maya wasn't into the picking and stuffing of the bear. She wouldn't even cooperate with the woman who was trying to get her to help with the heart. All that she wanted to do was comb and dress the bear. In the end, she picked the sparkly red shoes which remind me of Dorothy's from The Wizard of Oz and the shiny pink dress. Maya just loves shiny and sparkly! : ) Calla on the other hand wanted to pick out some rainbow colored clothes. She got the rainbow top and shoes but refused to pick out any bottoms for her poor lamb because none of them were rainbow colored! Whatever, everybody left happy! Tomorrow our little girl turns 3. I'm off to do some of the prep work.

Thank you Kristy, Jay, Gracie, Bella and of course Molly for collecting books for the Children's hospital for Molly's birthday. We continue to be touched by all of the generous ways people keep moving forward.

Sandee, I'd love to get together for a pool party! Let me know and tell Kennedy that I am touched by the fact that she named one of her flowers Georgia. We have My Little Ponies, Baby Dolls, puppies and all kinds of toys named Georgia around here. One of our friends' daughters (3) has a baby doll named Georgia too. You're right, she continues to bring love into people's homes and lives.

Love to you all,

Kristen
