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.

Three

Georgie would have been three years old today. It is a heavy day for me, full of all kinds of 'could have beens'. I wonder what she would have been like now. Would her hair have lightened up like her sisters'? Would she be quiet and cautious like Calla? Mischievous and dramatic like Maya? Playful and determined like Aria? Would she be smart like her dad, stubborn like her mom? Would she sing like an angel?

It hurts to ponder all of the things and yet I can't help myself. We carry Georgia with us each and every day. I am as aware of her birthday as I am of her sisters. I wish that I could smile and celebrate with others but it is still too painful. We will escape again today and celebrate our girl in our own way.

While I find today quite painful, I have only to look at some pictures from 3 years ago to see see the JOY.





Happy Birthday Georgia Lily! We miss you so much!
