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.

Out of the Mouths of Babes

Everything seems to be coming together even if it does end up being last minute! LOL Global just came by to do an interview which will be airing tonight on the 6:00 news. The camera man seemed really touched by the story and is actually hoping to come by with his kids. He seemed really excited about the Jets tickets actually! : )

This morning I loaded Maya and Aria up into the van to drive across the city to pick up the raffle tickets. When Maya asked what we were doing, I was waiting for an all out melt down. She gets carsick and I know that she would have rather been doing anything other than sitting in a van driving around town on a beautiful morning. I told her that we were going to pick up the prize tickets for Georgia's Journey of Hope. It was only two days away after all. Instead of melting down she replied,

"Oh Right! We have to do Georgia's Journey of Hope so that those men can make some magic potions and cure all of the babies like Georgia! Right Mommy!?"

No meltdown. No complaining. Just a nice happy ride singing along to the Mini Pops. Thanks for that Maya! Thanks for reminding me that one day those men and women are going to come up with a potion and all of those little warriors will be saved. That's why we keep going!! : )

Love to you all,
