We brought Georgia home on April 3rd and of course she passed away on April 21st. We wish to thank all of the people that have surrounded us with support and compassion this past year. The journey that we have travelled has not been easy and yet we remain strong. Please do not feel bad for us or take pity on us. I have said it many times before and will continue to say it, Georgia was a gift, a most beautiful and precious gift. It was a priveledge to have carried her for nine months and an honour to have cared for her for another six. As a special someone once told me, "A short life is no less meaningful than a long one." Indeed, Georgia's short life has had a huge impact on so many and we hope that you will continue to remember her.
We won't be here on Wednesday as we are coccooning ourselves once more. We love all of the support but the awkward pauses and pitying looks are just as uncomfortable for us as they are for you. So we are taking off, just the four of us, hoping to have a wonderful family day. I hope that for those of you that have been touched by Georgia's story that you will take a moment to reflect not just on Georgia but also on the many lessons that we can learn from her life and her death.
I have uploaded several pictures tonight that some of you may or may not have seen before. They are all dated last April and I hope will serve as a reminder for all of the joy that one can encounter in the most difficult of circumstances. Enjoy.
