The working mother of two moved to the city a few months ago from Tallahassee, Fla. She hopes the house at 207 Bon Air Ave. will give her a safe, stable place to raise her son, Jacqurius, 14, and daughter, Tyreyonna, 12. “We are very excited,” Baker said. “It’s a good feeling. I just want to say thank you to everyone. Words can’t really express how much this means to us.”
