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.

Pleasant Surprise

The first few posts of this blog are emails that I sent out to a few friends explaining what was going on with Georgia. As Georgia's illness progressed the email list grew longer and eventually our friend Glen set up this blog so that anybody and everybody that was interested in Georgia's story could follow. It has allowed us to connect with many more people than we had ever imagined.

There are many reasons that I keep writing, but one of them is that it remains a way for us to keep her memory alive. So, the other day I was very touched when my friend Laura showed up with a new copy of her Total She Catalogue. Total She is a company that sells all kinds of pretty and useful things for women. Many of their items can be personalized. The pendant that I wear everyday in fact, is a Total She product. On the cover of the catalogue is a new pendant in the shape of a heart with the engraved name Georgia. I have since been told that the name of the pendant is actually Georgia (although you can have any name engraved that you'd like) and it is in fact named after our Georgia.

This was an amazing and very touching surprise. We are so grateful to the people involved in making that happen. I have attached a picture below of the pendant. You can also check out Total She Products here or contact my friend Laura at laura.shegirl@gmail.com for any of their products. Knowing that our daughter's memory is carried in the hearts of so many means a lot to us.

Love to you all,

Kristen
