Jaime in Metairie

I just wanted to let you know that you are dead on in regards to personal documents following Katrina.

I had a baby on Aug. 24th last year in Metairie, LA. As of today she still does not have a birth certificate. The last time I tried to check on it I was told that they were still working on a storm backlog and they could not tell me if her certificate was in the works or not. The hospital says they shipped it but that does not mean if arrived before August 29th. She did recieve her social security card a couple of months ago but until then I was not able to add her to my insurance.

My mother does not have one in hand either but that is because it washed away. At least she can obtain a copy once things calm down.
