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.

3...2...1...

We have been working hard the last couple of days getting all of the details worked out for tomorrow. I spent last night and this afternoon helping to organize and wrap the prizes. In the end we have 24 prize packages. I can't believe how many people have donated! It is really overwhelming. Mike's nanny had a beautiful memorial quilt made as one of the prizes. I prefer to call it a hope quilt. It has pink ribbons on it that say things like 'faith' and 'hope'. It is absolutely beautiful. We've also had many people just handing us ticket money without taking tickets claiming that they can't come but still want to support what we're doing. Thank you!

I have no doubt that Georgia's Journey of Hope will be a success. If you live in the area please consider coming. Georgia's Journey is as much about Gwendolyn, Nicholas, Dakin, Sophia and so many others as it is about her. It represents a community of people coming together not just to honor one little girl's birthday but to honor the lives of so many children lost to and living with SMA. It is at its very core love in action.

Love to you all,

Kristen
