SERIES ON DISPLACED FAMILY FROM NEW ORLEANS: BOSTON GLOBE

After 45 hours on a bus, these evacuees find generosity, but more frustration, in Boston . " For Ray Garland and Tamara Bernard and her six sons, the unexpected trip from their native New Orleans to Boston began shortly before Hurricane Katrina struck, when a dozen people crowded into Garland's mother's van and drove four hours over clogged roads to Baton Rouge, La., which is usually less than an hour away. The trip ended at 10 a.m. Saturday when, tired and hungry and carrying blankets and backpacks, 45 hours after they left Baton Rouge, they stepped off a bus in South Station and hugged the minister who brought them here." ...

After their ordeal, a family gets a taste of Northern hospitality. " Ray Garland was nervous yesterday morning when a limousine pulled in front of the Framingham hotel he's called home for the past four days, ever since he and Tamara Bernard and her six sons took a bus from a shelter in Baton Rouge, La., to rebuild their hurricane-shattered lives in Boston." ...

Katrina evacuees struggle to find comfort in normal routines of everyday living. "Finally, 12 days after Ray Garland and Tamara Bernard and her six sons stepped off a bus from Baton Rouge, they have a home -- or what is home for now. It is a modest, three-bedroom, one-bath frame house with gleaming floors, and a picnic table out back, rented with the aid of two Newton families determined to help this family made drifters by Hurricane Katrina. Finally, as of Friday, almost four weeks after they fled New Orleans, all the boys are back in school." ...
