BRAITHWAITE, La. - Jill Baumy and her family have resided in Braithwaite for 34 years and after Isaac decided to rebuild their destroyed home, in addition to buying property in St. Bernard.
“Our home is here and it’s hard for us to leave this area. I was born and raised here,” said Baumy.
The Baumy Family is rebuilding with the hopes that the levee system will be rebuilt and that insurance rates will drop, but they fear that the neighborhood they once called home, will never be the same again.
